Pierre Noizat
Bitcoin pioneer and activist supporting digital sovereignty, free software and decentralized networks, Pierre Noizat is the co-founder and CEO of Paymium, the first bitcoin/euro marketplace founded in 2011 in Paris.

During more than 20 years of international experience in network technologies and cryptography, he contributed to the success of major projects such as the launch of DirectTV in the USA and TPS in France.

He is also the author of “Bitcoin, monnaie libre” and of the blog “”, since 2011, one of the first French-speaking websites dedicated to Bitcoin.

Pierre Noizat is a graduate from Ecole Polytechnique and Columbia University and uses his scientific background to share his knowledge and experience of Bitcoin. By applying the laws of thermodynamics to the understanding of economic principles, he explores the link between money and energy and demonstrates with simple examples that Bitcoin's unique characteristics can correct the dysfunction of our economy.
