****
Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized peer-to-peer digital currency and payment network. It has been described as "The Internet of Money" and breakthrough in computer science, but is primarily known for its price volatility and use for illicit purposes, such as in the notorious online black market, Silk Road. This event, organized by the MIT Bitcoin Club, will provide an overview of what bitcoin is and why it is so revolutionary, while addressing common questions and misconceptions often raised by mainstream media coverage.
 
The event will feature a presentation and Q&A with Jeremy Allaire, the Founder, CEO, and Chairman of Circle Internet Financial. Circle is a Boston-based company that has raised over $9M from leading investors, including Jim Breyer, Accel Partners, and General Catalyst, to build a suite of online products for end-users, businesses and charities aimed at enabling greater ease-of-use in digital payments. Prior to his latest venture, Allaire was Founder and CEO of Brightcove, CTO of Macromedia, and creator of ColdFusion.
 
Refreshments will be served at 6:30pm in the hallway but cannot be brought into the classroom. The presentation will begin promptly at 7:00pm.
 
Sponsorship for this event is generously provided by Circle Internet Financial.
