Bitcoin expert Benjamin Semchee (alias Bitcoin Ben) will be flying in from America to speak at BusinessCloud's cryptocurrency breakfast event on 2 February.

Semchee made an unlikely move into the world of Bitcoins after first making his name in radio and stand-up comedy and has attracted something of a cult following on social media because of his unusual approach.

His hilarious antics and knowledge of current events and the long-term direction of cryptocurrencies means he won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

He told BusinessCloud: "I used to have a local radio show and did stand-up comedy for years. I now host a Facebook and YouTube show called The Bitcoin Ben Show.

"I have about 100,000 views per week and have a loyal following all over the world.

"I was recently invited by Charlie Lee (creator of Litecoin) to join their team as a Influence-er/contributor on the project. I have many years of public speaking and live audio/video experience.

"My mix of comedy and information leads itself well to public speaking. I entertain as I educate the crowd."

The American is one of a stellar line-up of speakers including Scott Fletcher MBE, tech investor and founder of ANS; Gavin Brown, senior lecturer in financial economics at MMU and director of regulation & finance at Blockchain Capital; Matthew Margetts, partner, BLOCWORX Crypto Communications Agency; Louise Broderick, global blockchain driver, PwC ;  and Phillip Nunn, chief executive, The Blackmore Group and blockchain and cryptocurrency specialist.
