The blockchain boom certainly is coming - and London is in a great position to capitalise on it. The bristling tech scene in London combines strong support for innovation and new startups with a magnetism for top tech talent from around the globe. There are several prestigious universities here which are and will be undertaking cutting edge academic research in the blockchain space.
Berlin is, or at least used to be, the single place in Europe that was still cheap, a bit edgy, married to the slightly anarchist outlook of crypto. It’s a great place for people who want to change things to establish an office and work from here. London is much more in line with the establishment, they still want to disrupt but not really.
There is a density of machine learning talent in London that rivals even the Valley. Every year UK universities produce a roster of world-class machine learning engineers, coming straight out of the most innovative labs. To maintain the momentum in European AI, we’ll need to keep up that flow of expert and ambitious engineers, both by ensuring continued investment in higher education, and by guaranteeing that engineers are supported through accelerators once they graduate.
