Hi, I’m Conor Svensson

Host @ This Week in Blockchain 🎙 Founder/CEO @ Web3 Labs 🏢

Host 🎙

I host the weekly vlog and podcast This Week in Blockchain which provides a rundown of the major events that took place in the blockchain industry that are relevant to business during the past week.

Founder 🏢

I am the founder of Web3 Labs, a blockchain technology company. We work with large organisations to harness the value that blockchain provides for simplifying complex business processes, managing data and their assets.

Technology 💾

I authored the blockchain integration library Web3j, which provides the glue for business applications and Android phones to work with the Ethereum blockchain. The library is nearly 5 years old and approaching 1 million downloads, thanks to the usage by companies like J.P. Morgan, Opera and Samsung.

Meetups 🤝

I host the Virtual Enterprise Ethereum Meetup, which happens monthly. See what’s coming up here.

Blockchain Standards 🎓

I chaired the standards working group at the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, responsible for publishing the worlds first Enterprise Ethereum standards. I currently am vice-chair of the Interwork Framework Working Group at the Interwork Alliance, I also serve on the Baseline Protocol Technical Steering Committee, and am involved in the Hyperledger Climate Accounting Special Interest Group as I believe blockchain can assist in addressing climate issues.

Personal

Happily married with 2 awesome kids. Blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 🥋 which keeps me sane, I also enjoy running🦶, surfing 🏄 and SUP. Love reading sci-fi 📖 and psychology 🧠, and playing the dungeon master 🧙 in D&D.
