Event Details

Why did bitcoin's price crash by 75% last year?
Why did VCs pour nearly $500m in at the same time?

We'll answer this and much more.

We're CoinDesk, a news and analysis site that covers cryptocurrencies, and you're invited to our first Expert Briefing on bitcoin.

We've invited a limited number of London's leading technology and financial journalists to come along and learn more about the world of digital money over a few drinks. We're often asked to comment on bitcoin issues in the media, so we thought we'd create an event for journalists to dive deep into the topic. 

Don't worry, we're not looking for coverage – we'll keep it brief then we'll open the floor to questions so you can talk to our analyst. Following that, we'll run a short panel discussion with Circle and Elliptic, two leading companies in the bitcoin space. 

General Bytes is bringing its newest two-way bitcoin ATM while Circle is giving out some free bitcoin to attendees. 


6:00pm Drinks and check out the General Bytes bitcoin ATM. 
6:45pm Briefing by Garrick Hilleman, lead analyst of our quarterly report, State of Bitcoin. Includes questions from the floor. 
7:15pm Start of panel discussion with Jeremy Allaire, Circle and James Smith, Elliptic. Moderated by Joon Ian Wong, CoinDesk. Includes questions from the floor. 
8:00pm Drinks continue.

Circle lets consumers link bank accounts and credit cards to instantly acquire, use, and store bitcoin. Elliptic is an enterprise firm whose first product is accredited and insured bitcoin storage for investment funds. General Bytes is a bitcoin-related hardware and software manufacturer. Here's our coverage of CircleElliptic and the bitcoin ATM industry

This is the first in a regular series of briefings designed to help you to stay on top of this fast-moving area of finance. We hope you can join us.
