What are Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies solving for? 

What is an initial coin offering and why the euphoria? 

Our panel will discuss Block Chain, paint the landscape of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, the technology, its application and what it is solving for. 

We’ll then turn to the “problems" with these cryptocurrencies, the view by some to solve those problems and we’ll discuss the opportunities that Block Chain opens, to potentially solve for global problems.

We plan to have speakers from Australia & overseas. We’ll aim to bring in capital, entrepreneurs, regulatory authorities,  and service providers, who are working on the cutting edge of this technology.
