GigaOM Bitcoin Meetup
Thursday, May 16, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Jose, CA
As GigaOM's David Meyer says, "Bitcoin is a complex subject, but an important one. Whether it succeeds or fails, it represents a crucial experiment in using technology to turn our financial system upside-down, and it will have important consequences."
Everybody's talking about Bitcoin these days, which is quite remarkable given the highly technical nature of the crypto-currency. So why is it such a big deal? What is the opportunity, who are the players, what are the challenges, and what does the future hold? Come to this free GigaOM meet-up and hear from speakers who are experts in the field of payments, Bitcoin, and the future of currency.
