Bitcoin Wednesday 64 Event Image

Experience Bitcoin Wednesday in just two minutes.  This event was held in Amsterdam’s Volkshotel, the former headquarters of the Volkskrant newspaper, on 3 October, 2018.

All of the speakers from this conference appear in the video, including Statebox CEO Jelle Herold and Bitcoin maximalist Tone Vays.

Professor Jeremy Pitt said:

This exchange of gifts created bonds between the different islanders so that when there was a problem they would all pitch in to help eachother out. There’s a reason why we call it currency — we say it’s a currency and we say it’s in circulation — because it creates that platform upon which other values can be built.

Willem Middelkoop, founder of the Commodity Discovery Fund and author of The Big Reset said:

We know big changes are coming to the world financial systems. We know that digital currencies are planned to be part of it. For us as crypto investors the most important thing to understand is that crypto and bitcoins will be tolerated as a niche within the financial system, and crypto could turn into a separate asset class.

Dominik Zynis, Co-Founder of the Wings prediction market for ICOs said, “In our case the projects offer a small reward to the crowd for reviewing the project and the more ratings they get, the more accurate the prediction.”

Take a look at this overview of the conference program.
