About the Event

Unitize, the collaborative online blockchain event organized by San Francisco Blockchain Week and Blockshow was  one-off online conference designed to bring together the blockchain community to celebrate the continued progress that has been made in the first half of 2020 and to foster further collaboration and engagement.

Unitize brought together prominent thought leaders from the blockchain community for an engaging series of live broadcasts, virtual exhibitions, and fireside chats. Featured speakers discussed a broad range of topics, from the potential impact and benefits that blockchain technology holds for enterprises to how developing regulations will shape the sector.

Featured Speakers

Brian Brooks

Former Acting Comptroller of the Currency at University of Chicago Law School
Leader in financial services law, operations, and policy who successfully navigated corporate legal departments through two of the highest profile crisis turnarounds in financial history -- Fannie Mae and OneWest Bank (formerly Indymac Bank) -- and helped grow several high-profile Silicon Valley tech startups as chief legal officer (Coinbase), board member (Avant), or advisor (Spring Labs, EarnUp, TextIQ). Now helping develop and execute the President's financial services policy agenda.

Rated by Chambers & Partners as one of the 100 most influential general counsel in the world; by Legal 500 as one of the most innovative general counsel in the United States; and by Crunchbase as one of the top 10 influencers globally. Recognized as "the most transformative Comptroller in recent history" (Consumer Bankers Association), a "forward-looking visionary" (CoinDesk), and "one of the most creative thinkers ever to lead a regulatory agency" (LendIt Academy).

Kristin Smith

Executive Director of the Blockchain Association at Filecoin Foundation
Founding Executive Director of the Blockchain Association, the most influential trade association focused on blockchain and cryptocurrency issues. Equally focused on growth – having tripled the organization’s membership and doubled its budget since its 2018 founding – and results, having won the most important policy battles from introduction of the Token Taxonomy Act to development of the Digital Commodity Exchange Act to indefinitely postponing a harmful 2020 FinCEN rulemaking on self-hosted wallets through an innovation combination of litigation, regulatory, and legislative strategies. The Blockchain Association is now clearly the preeminent voice on blockchain and crypto issues globally and represents a majority of all crypto investment in the United States.

Dan Spuller

Director of Industry Affairs at Blockchain Association at Blockchain Association
Daniel Spuller is the Head of Industry Affairs for the Blockchain Association in Washington, DC. He was appointed Co-Chair of the North Carolina Blockchain Initiative by the Office of the Lieutenant Governor in 2019. Since 2012, Spuller has been an advocate of decentralized digital assets, bitcoin, and blockchain-based technologies.

From 2016-2020, Spuller led membership and growth at the Washington-based Chamber of Digital Commerce growing it from 38 to over 200 members at its peak. He previously worked for North Carolina’s Department of Commerce and was instrumental in facilitating negotiations between the Commissioner of Banks and the Chamber of Digital Commerce, successfully driving a multi-stakeholder campaign leading to the legislative passage of America’s first comprehensive blockchain-related legislation through the North Carolina Money Transmitters Act of 2016.
