In the last year Bitcoin has become a hot topic. Many think that it is the most exciting technology since the Internet. Some of the top venture capital firms back the bitcoin companies.
Marc Andreessen , who invested over $50M in bitcoin startups, wrote a very optimistic essay on “Why Bitcoin Matters” in the beginning of this year and a recent one (among others) called “Bitcoin With Work in a Spectacular Way”. On a flip side, The New York Times published the opinion of Paul Krugman , the Nobel Prize Winning economist who believes that “Bitcoin is Evil”.
So what is bitcoin? Is it a game changer or an evil? What is its future? How can bitcoin disrupt the current financial system? Why is it dangerous for banks and how can you use it? All these questions and many more we’ll discuss next Thursday, November 20th during the Fireside chat with Bob Dykes, board member of BitFury - the leading bitcoin infrastructure provider and bitcoin transaction processing company. Bitfury has raised $40M in 2 rounds of funding.
