Event description

Description

Since emerging in 2009, Bitcoin has generated much interest as a cryptocurrency and the future of money. As envisioned in the originating “Satoshi Nakamoto” white paper, Bitcoin is meant to be “peer-to-peer electronic cash” – a new form of currency used globally as everyday cash by everyday people.

This event will help those new to crypto-currency understand how to "get in and get on" and for those with more experience the Talk will offer a sense of expert insight as to the potential and possible future of this game-changing technology and investing opportunity.

"Early Bird" Tickets are available at the price of £20 until 6pm January 8th and then the price will increase to £25.

What will it take for a “Bitcoin Cash World” to truly emerge?

Find out in this interactive Q&A session with Dr. Craig Wright, who has been involved with Bitcoin since 2009 and is one of the earliest minds behind Bitcoin. Dr. Wright is an Australian computer scientist, businessman and inventor who challenges the world with visionary ideas. Currently, he is Chief Scientist for nChain – the global leader in research and development of blockchain technologies.

Dr. Wright will share his vision for “Bitcoin Cash World” where Bitcoin is used on a daily basis by merchants, consumers, banks, and other participants across the world’s economy. Among other things, he will explain:


  • the advantages of Bitcoin over traditional fiat currency and payment methods

  • why the newer Bitcoin Cash presents the better path to being “peer-to-peer electronic cash”

  • what steps need to be taken to achieve global adoption


Before his early and extensive work with Bitcoin, Dr. Wright had over 20 years of experience in the fields of information technology and security, and is one of the most highly qualified digital forensics practitioners in the world. He has personally conducted in excess of 1,200 IT security related engagements for more than 120 Australian and international organizations in the private and government sectors.


A prolific researcher, Dr. Wright has been a lecturer and researcher in computer science at Charles Sturt University. He has also authored many articles, academic papers and books on IT, security, bitcoin and other cryptocurrency issues. Dr. Wright is now a sought-after public speaker internationally on security, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency topics, while also presenting his research findings at academic and business conferences.

Doors open 630pm for a 730pm start and with a break the event will end around 930pm - 10pm
