Barry James is a visiting Fellow at the University of Portsmouth Business School and pioneer of the Frontier Technologies industry. Currently he works as Founding Chair of the British Blockchain & Frontier Technologies Association, and Co-Chair of the Westminster Frontier Technologies Forum, bringing informed discussion of technologies of the future into government and legislative circles.

Prior to the advent of Blockchain, he was instrumental in creating the Central NHS Network in the fledgling days of the Internet, and innovated Cloud-based technology to better support business networking in the early 2000s. He has extensive experience of innovation in crowdfunding, and in 2017 published New Routes to Funding: The Handbook of Modern Funding which has been described as “an absolute must-read” by industry experts.

His entrepreneurship skills and talent for innovation has led him to become recognised internationally as a thought leader in the Frontier Technologies space. He writes the weekly Token Intelligence column in City AM and hosts ICOradio, answering the world’s questions on the implications of Blockchain technology. Barry aspires to bring a fundamental knowledge of Blockchain and its implications to the masses, and he has extensive experience hosting conferences and speaking at Universities and public events in the UK and the USA.
