Bitcoin & Math Based Currencies: Road to $100 BN

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

High hopes are building for Bitcoins, and those are only buoyed by the endless speculations by the entrepreneurs, investors, regulators and others about its potential. From 2009 to 2013 the market cap of Bitcoin went from up 100x from $10M to $1bn. What will drive the next 100x increase, and what will prevent it? Will it be Bitcoin that breaks through or another math based currency? We will discuss regulatory issues, network effects, how to build consumer trust, the transition from an ecosystem dominated by speculators to one dominated by merchants and customers, what are some of the likely candidate usecases that will drive mass market adoption, and what will be the necessary preconditions for the next 100x growth.
