Overall, the conference was amazingly punctual given the Israelis' highly mediterranean standards in timekeeping.  There were some fantastic speakers with an eclectic choice of topics, from politics to scalability, finance and bitcoin 2.0.  It is difficult to pick the highlights given the quality of presentations and volume of information, so we will just say thanks to the La'Zooz team for the much needed beers they kindly distributed at the end of the conference!

Highlights from the morning:

A lot of talk about regulation and non-financial applications of bitcoin.  We learned a lot about banking in different jurisdictions and about potential uses of the blockchain, from buying genuine wine to smart property contracts.

Most speakers are local Israelis, and attendees appear to be too.  The turnout is excellent this morning, over 200 people for sure...
