Online Blockchain plc: Umbria Network is Official Partner of the Crypto AM DeFi & Digital Inclusion Summit


Umbria Network is a key participant and official partner at the Crypto AM DeFi & Digital Inclusion Online Summit on Thursday, 20th May 2021.

Opened by the Lord Mayor of London and backed by City AM, the free six-hour online event will include talks and vibrant panel discussions from a roster of 30 leading experts in the blockchain and DeFi fields.

CUDOS, Coinintelligence Fund, Aave, Boson Protocol, Brave, CryptoCompare and Ziglu are just some of the names taking part. The evolution of DeFi and its potential for growth, smart contract audits and smart contract cyber security, DeFi investments and staking, regulation and – key theme – digital inclusion are just some of the topics that will be discussed.

Barney and Oscar Chambers, co-lead developers and founders of Umbria, will take to the virtual stage at 7:20PM–7:40PM BST where they will discuss how Umbria ( is removing the barriers to entry for DeFi. Their talk will cover:

  • Lack of accessibility for beginners entering the space – how Umbria is creating a user-friendly experience so that decentralised finance is open to anyone
  • Ethereum fees and transaction speed – what Layer 2 does for DeFi and how Umbria is implementing it
  • DeFi project trust issues – Umbria has AIM-listed Online Blockchain plc as its co-ordinator, administrator and advisor. This brings a high level of trust, credibility and transparency to the project; something quite rare in the DeFi space.

“It’s been an extraordinary fourteen months since Crypto AM held its inaugural awards in Canary Wharf and next month we celebrate our third birthday. During the pandemic however, the digital divide has grown wider and the need for digital inclusion ever more urgent. The Crypto market is in full growth mode with the raging bull that is DeFi taking the spotlight,” said James Bowater, Founder & Editor at Large of Crypto AM. “It seemed fitting therefore, as preparations for our great City of London to fully reopen continue, to stage a virtual event. I am extremely grateful to Coinintelligence, our sponsor CUDOS and our official partners including – of course – Umbria Network for stepping up to make it happen.”
