Agenda

It’s the technology, stupid. The real value of Bitcoin
A panel discussion that bypasses talk of bitcoin, the wildly fluctuating digital currency portrayed by the mainstream media, and reflects instead on the disruptive potential of the underlying "blockchain" technology.
Disrupting centralised exchanges; challenging the way corporations are structured and governed; decentralising payment and voting systems; re-thinking property ownership rights and transfer.
The concept of The Blockchain may be about to change everything.
Moderated by:
Adam Cleary - www.bullionbitcoin.com (http://www.bullionbitcoin.com/)

Pinar Ermidag - Former business development manager at LSE Group, ICAP and Citi Group

All have faced many challenges in trying to bring their products and services to market and their experiences should provide invaluable insight to all those with their own start-up ideas.
