About This Event

Ever wondered how does ICOs work? How secure are your bitcoins? What applications can we build using Bitcoin as a platform? Or if cryptocurrencies be regulated?

Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders from a specific industry — this time from the Cryptocurrency world — to explore new intersections between their field and technology.

Featured Experts: Leaders in the Cryptocurrency community will break down the biggest challenges and opportunities they face with the rise of new technology, and explain how their teams adapt to the fast pace of innovation.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.
