Event description

Description

From $100 (one hundred only) -> $80 million

If you would have invested $100 in bitcoin back in 2010, it would be worth ~ $80 million today.... damn...


Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, like Bitcoin & Ethereum, are revolutionizing the way we think about raising funds, government currency monopolies, transferring money across the globe, maintaining financial privacy and security, and verifying ownership of money or potentially everything.

Join us for a panel discussion with some of the emerging leaders in this space, where we'll ask, listen, and learn about many of the below points and more. Both hi level and more detailed discussion will be covered, as the audience's familiarity with these topics will range from non-existent to experts :)

** What is the Blockchain, and why is it so important? Real world examples, current & future.

** What is an ICO, and why are so many companies starting to use this method to raise funds?

** Cryptocurrencies - Why would people want to use them? Will they be able to provide financial security outside of government systems, will they replace central banking or serve as a new tool for monetary management?

When registering, you'll also get a chance to list any questions you'd like for our panel to cover too.

Please note: NO VIDEOS or AUDIO RECORDINGS or publishing/social media sharing of quotes or commentary from the panel. This is a small group, free-form thought discussion. As the content is dynamic, we'd like to keep everything OFF THE RECORD in any official capacity so our members & guests may speak freely.
