Colin Palmer - Bit Ticket
Colin Palmer is a self taught techie and the CTO of BitTicket who’s team is solving issues within the event ticketing industry using blockchain technology.
With over a decade of experience in full stack development, he’s previously built servers, apps, and websites and worked in the VR industry prior to his current role. In 2014 he was head hunted by the co-founders of BitTicket and hasn’t looked back since. As an early enthusiast and advocate of blockchain technologies in their many forms he has been spending the last few years architecting and leading the development on the BitTicket product.
Colin and the BitTicket team are trying to get the blockchain away from academics, crypto traders and developers and into the hands of ‘real’ people, but above all they want to make a positive change in an antiquated and sometimes unfair industry. BitTicket have recently partnered with well established UK platform TheTicketSellers and have received multiple rounds of funding, shying away from the route of an ICO. The company has seen real success in being one of the first real world applications of blockchain, outside of cryptocurrencies, now live for over 6 months and growing daily.
Outside of work Colin loves questions with no obvious answer, craft beer, Chinese tea and swimming, but hates people giving up his freedoms via a non-binding referendum. He also loves a good chit chat so feel free to come up and say hello.
