Title

Cryptocurrencies (Geneva)

Event Description

NO other emerging technology has generated as much attention as Bitcoin and its underlying blockchain infrastructure in the world.  Especially after the astonishing bull market (bubble?) in Bitcoins after the Fork.

Since the birth of Bitcoin in 2009, its market capitalization has reached an unprecedented price level and even surpassed the gold.  Although Bitcoin has reached a significant momentum in the global market, the fundamentals for a widespread adoption are still lacking.  The next logical question would be if Bitcoin or cryptocurriences in general can be treated as an asset class, on par with commodities, stocks or real-estate.

Our speaker, Frederik Gregaard will introduce the concept of cryptocurrency within the context of supply and demand mechanism which cannot be influenced by a central authority
