19:00-19:30 - Gathering and refreshments
19:30-21:00 - Panel Discussion: The Looming Fork
21:00-21:30 - Free discussion
Disagreements over some technical details of the Bitcoin protocol, most notably the block size limit, have led to the creation of two separate pieces of software with incompatible protocols, each having a group of supporters who claim it to be the true version of Bitcoin.
What are the underlying technical issues? What are the differing philosophies for guiding Bitcoin's evolution? What will this fork mean for the Bitcoin technology, community and economy, in the short and long terms? Which version should we choose? What if the right choice is not to choose at all?
We will discuss all of this and more, in this panel discussion moderated by Eli Sklar, and featuring Ron Gross, Ariel Horwitz, Eli Bejerano, Nadav Ivgi and Jonathan Rouach.
The discussion will take place in Hebrew.
We would like to start the panel at 19:30 sharp, so please make an effort to arrive on time, taking traffic into account. From 19:00 you'll have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and socialize.
As always, the discussion will be recorded for those of us who can't attend.
Parking is recommended at the nearby Azrieli Center.
