What if currency wasn’t something that exchanged hands physically, but moved instantaneously between networks, countries, and continents? What if it wasn’t regulated by a government, system of banks, or any entity at all? And, what if it was completely open source? This disruption of what we view as currency isn’t just theory, it is already a $1.5 billion dollar movement. Leading the charge is Bitcoin. Launched in 2009, Bitcoin moved to disrupt and decentralize currency in a big way by leveraging cryptography (instead of government authority) to digitally coin and transfer money. Since then, a number of startups and tech innovations have emerged to build an ecosystem for virtual currencies to be mined, exchanged, bought, and sold.

While growing rapidly and garnering interest from all sectors, this fascinating arena is also fraught with its own concerns. The potential anonymity of virtual currencies has been associated with the funding of illicit activities. Virtual currencies also often fall under the radar of government and are often untaxed and unregulated, which has led to increasing government scrutiny.

Whether you are bitcoiner yourself or are brand new to the world of virtual currencies, you are invited listen to a diverse panel of experts discuss the topic and give their 2 bitcents on what the future holds.
