Founders & VC - Bitcoin and Beyond...

This month, we invited New York Times Deputy Technology Editor Quentin Hardy, Ethereum's co-founder Gavin Wood and John Villasenor, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in DC to join the panel discussion. The chat will be moderated by Eric Zimits, a partner at Granite Ventures.

We will cover topics such as current challenges in the Bitcoin ecosystem, innovations beyond Bitcoin, and startup opportunities based on decentralized protocols, etc.

      Jui, sorry there is not slides - it was a panel discussion. But in the future we might consider to video tape the event for future reference.

    Thanks again for everyone's contribution. For the sake of transparency, a total of $136.26 ticket sales were made to SF Fund at HandUp. It's certainly a good start.

    The audience was eager to interact with the panel which made for a lively discussion. I liked that the audience posed questions to the panel throughout the talks instead of waiting until the end. Great conversation :)
