Could Bitcoin and the flood of crypto-currencies be as transformational for the world of currencies as the World Wide Web? Finextra would like to invite you to a morning of breakfast and discussion to find out the answer to this question and many more.
When: 8:00 – 10:30 UK Time on Wednesday, 19th March 2014
Where: The View Room, CCT Venues Plus-Canary Wharf, Level 32, 40 Bank Street London E14 5NR
Richard Brown, Executive Architect, Banking and Financial Markets at IBM and Hakim Mamoni, CTO at Seedcoin - Bitcoin Startup Incubator, will lead our roundtable with a welcome chat looking at the future of the Bitcoin economy. The discussion will then be opened to the floor for what we are sure will be an entertaining and educational morning of networking and discussion in the company of your peers
Bitcoin advocates promote the virtual currency as the future of money, and in some investing circles it has created a buzz reminiscent of the early Internet age.
Of course, Bitcoin may prove to be just a passing fad, unable to withstand deeper regulatory scrutiny, but it has opened the door to other innovations in currency creation and sparked heated debate about the future of money and the role of banks, regulators and governments in the money supply chain.
