How Will Cryptocurrency Shake the World?

Everyone’s heard of crypto currency such as Bitcoin, or Ripple’s RPX. But possibly the most disruptive aspect of crypto currency  is the distributed databases that act as the “ledgers” for these systems. These systems can serve as systems of records for transactions of anything, and in any currency…real estate, stock, bonds, gold, currency…in dollars, rubles, or Bitcoin. These systems  could profoundly alter the future of commerce globally.  

Come hear our panel of experts discuss the likely future for open and permissioned distributed ledgers. How much are the block chain, ripple, or other systems being used today? What do the adoption curves look like and how far out is the inflection point? What real use cases are running on them? Are there any architectural limitations to their scale…could they run all the world’s commerce? How can you invest to profit from these trends? What are potential regulatory issues? 

Moderator: Kurt Thams, CTO PayNearMe

    The video recording and still images are usually posted about a week after the event, so check back later this week. The live stream had to be restarted repeatedly due to a recurring WiFi connectivity problem.
