    I really enjoyed last night's presentation. Payment systems really should be simpler, so any push to make this so is always a good idea. Great to get a different perspective on Bitcoin from some of the attendees as well.

      Hi Anar, just a general discussion about how the money laundering and fraud aspects have been overblown by the media.

    It would be great if this presentation is recorded. There are people who have last minute cancellation but really want to learn and benefit a lot from this....
    Also, would be great if slides can be put up... Pl. let us know….

      Thanks, Nitin. Sorry you can't make it. We haven't lined up anyone to video or livestream it, but would be game if someone in the community wants to volunteer. Our goal is to make these conversational and interactive rather than a lecture, so there won't be much slide-wise. Sorry, and hope to see you at next month's event!
