Bitcoin Wednesday 65

The 65th Bitcoin Wednesday will be held in Amsterdam on 7 November, 2018.

Please RSVP as soon as possible if you want to attend.


The Future of Decentralized Identity

Blockchain technology has the potential to transform the way we think about identity verification and the reputations that we build on it.  What are the challenges and opportunities that this innovation offers, and how are the digital currency-based solutions to these issues different from one another?

Identity and Trust with Bitcoin

Imagine a new type of Bitcoin wallet in which your digital currency can be shared with a close friend of your choice (a 1 of 2 multi-sig address). This approach exposes each user to some risk from their close friend, but also builds a web-of-trust structure that allows them to query how much they can trust other, previously unknown identities.

Key Management and Identity Interoperable Across Blockchains

Secure key management is possibly one of the critical missing pieces.  What does the ideal solution look like and how can we use it to reach hundreds of millions of new users?


The complete program for this event will be published here as soon as possible and updated regularly.


Check back soon for the complete program.

You are invited to join us once again for this upcoming edition of Bitcoin Wednesday, including another program revolving around the important recurring theme of blockchains and 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 the month so that we can raise a toast together to the increasing role of Bitcoin in Dutch society. Please take note:

  • 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 blockchains, digital currencies or 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 the first Wednesday of every month. The conference itself usually begins at 19:00, but we gather earlier at the bar for networking.

For all Bitcoin Wednesday conferences, space is limited and advance registration is always required.

Sign up now for Bitcoin Wednesday.
