At Bitcoin Wednesday, on 3 February 2016:
“Bitcoin’s Incentive Structure” by George Papageorgiou
Mr. Papageorgiou is a lecturer at the University of Nicosia Master’s program in Digital Currency. This is the world’s very first accredited degree in cryptocurrency, which is given at a private University in Cyprus with over 8,500 students. Mr. Papageorgiou’s talk will be about the incentive structure that currently exists in Bitcoin between miners, users, holders, businesses, developers as well as the externalities of adoption in an attempt to clarify the pressures we’re currently seeing from both sides of the block size debate. Read more about Mr. Papageorgiou.
Andreas Vlachos is a faculty member, researcher and student at the Master’s program in Digital Currency at the University of Nicosia where he is currently conducting research on global Bitcoin adoption. Andreas will describe how the Digital Currency program is structured to give students a broad understanding of both the conventional approaches of capital markets and Fintech, as well as the innovative ones inherent in bitcoin and digital currencies as well as what these technologies can do to reshape traditional financial structures.
Kleitia Zeqo has advised the European Commission on its crowdfunding policy and is now responsible for business development at the European thinktank CrowdfundingHub. She will talk about the multiple mechanisms for crowdfunding.
Cryptocurrency advisor Toufic AlRjoula will give a review of some of the most important events in the cryptocurrency sector in 2015.
You are invited to join us in Amsterdam on 3 February 2016 for Bitcoin Wednesday, including another program revolving around the important recurring theme of cryptocurrencies in Dutch society. As you’ve come to expect, networking will be at the heart of this event: run into your old, familiar Bitcoin Wednesday friends and colleagues and tell stories about the early days; meet the newcomers and share your ideas about the future. After a number of thought-provoking conference presentations, there will be ample opportunity for networking at the bar.
Mark your calendar for the first Wednesday of February so that we can raise a toast together to the increasing role of Bitcoin in Dutch society.
So that the digital currency revolution leaves no one behind, please bring colleagues, friends, family and neighbors with you.
Bitcoin Wednesday is an accessible event for anyone who has interest in digital currencies or the related technologies, a great chance to meet other like-minded professionals, and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
Mark it down in your agenda; join us on Wednesday, 3 February at 18:00. The conference itself begins at 19:00, but we gather earlier at the bar for networking.
Like most Bitcoin Wednesday conferences this event is free, but space is limited and advance registration is required.
