The Longest-Running Monthly Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference in the Netherlands --

                            -- is held in Amsterdam on the first Wednesday of the month.

Join us for the next conference on 1 June 2016 which will feature:

Riccardo Spagni from South Africa, a core developer of the anonymous digital currency, Monero.

Unlike Bitcoin, which is completely transparent, Monero transactions are private and completely untraceable.  Riccardo will explain how this is done and why it matters.

From Germany, Blockchain developer Tobias Schwarz, member of the Waves team that is currently holding a crowd sale that ends at 12 noon on 1 June.

Tobias will give a presentation on how the Blockchain system works including his proof that it actually does work.  He'll also answer questions about his various projects in the Nxt ecosystem: NxtAd, MyNxt, and NxtPeers.

Tone Vays, Wall Street veteran of the 2008 financial crisis, former risk analyst for Bear Stearns, VP for JP Morgan Chase, and currently Head of Research for data and research company, BraveNewCoin.

"Somewhere in this world of Wall Street handshakes, lawsuits and working around other people's money, there comes a time to step back and see [life] for what it is," writes Tone on his blog.  His presentation will address Bitcoin’s role in the modern global economy and where the Bitcoin price might be going next.

Luis Molina, founder of Fermat, a decentralized, blockchain-enabled platform for the peer-to-peer exchange of goods, services, assets and data.  

His presentation will address the evolution of the sharing economy and how it can be supported by Fermat.

Richard Kastelein, founder and publisher of Blockchain News.

Richard will share some interesting startups and use cases he has discovered recently.

And much more!  Check back soon for additional information.
