We are honoured to announce that Prof. Steve Keen will be joining us as a special guest speaker and panelist at BitBrum in November.
Famous for predicting the global financial crisis Prof. Keen (AKA Dr Doom) is a reknowned critic of Neoclassical economics and an expert in economic modelling. Notably the Bank of England has pointed out that cryptocurrencies operating on public blockchains will for the first time in history enable us to ascertain the velocity of money which itself is a key metric for economic growth.
There is no doubt that 2008 financial crisis has had a profound effect on everyone attending BitBrum.
Satoshi Nakamoto famously referenced the bail-out of the banks in the Bitcoin genesis block and Professor Keen has some equally profound and contrarian views on debt, austerity and moreover the nature of money itself which have earned him the respect of many in the cryptocurrency space.
Steve is Professor and Head of the School of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University in London and the author of Debunking Economics & Can We Avoid Another Financial Crisis.
Chris Coney of The Cryptoverse YouTube news channel & The Cryptoversity online learning channel will be hosting a panel discussion at the show covering cryptocurrency tech & trading. [more details to be announced].
If you are not so tech, an investor or even an unapologetic speculator in this now $100BN+ market then there’s something in it for you too. The event will feature some special guests commentators in the space who will host trading talks and share insights into what’s hot – and what’s not.
We’ll get behind the burgeoning token economy and the current ICO phenomenon built around Ethereum Smart Contracts and maybe even help you to avoid the scams, understand important security metrics and above all keep your coin safe.
What’s more we’ll get into real applications of this nascent innovation such as IoT and the challenges of building secure and collaborative C-ITS in connected and autonomous vehicles.
More Guest Speakers – To Be Announced.
