Is it a currency? Is it a commodity? Does it contain an embedded store of value? Who is really controlling it? There are many questions floating around about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Etherium and Litecoin as well as the platforms where they trade. As the public has experienced FOMO (fear of missing out) from observing the 602,500% increase in Bitcoin’s value over the 13 years it has existed, questions of efficacy have made it out of hacker chat rooms and into your mother’s kitchen. Come hear a balanced perspective from two speakers on the potential benefits and risks of cryptocurrencies. We hope you walk away with both a deeper institutional understanding of “crypto” that can be applied to your practice and a stock of retail soundbytes to satiate even the least sophisticated investors in your circle.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn about the potential risks of crypto currency from a former miner of it.
  2. Learn about the potential benefits of crypto currency from an industry leader and proponent.
  3. Walk away with a better understanding of both perspectives and how to think about what is most appropriate for your investment strategy and clients.
