Block Chain Summit, the exclusive bitcoin event held on Richard Branson's private island, has revealed a surprising advocate of blockchain technology.

According to tweets from Necker Island, actress Lucy Liu – better known for her work in Hollywood blockbusters and Sherlock Holmes reboot Elementary – joined participants for a Skype discussion on how the blockchain could play a role in identity management.

Although the event was live streamed on Periscope, organisers are expected to publicly release videos of the talks given during the three-day event soon.

Following 21's plans to put mining chips in consumer devices, tweets from Block Chain Summit attendees also revealed pictures of a light bulb capable of mining bitcoin, developed by BitFury.

BitFury did not respond to a request for comment at press time.
