    This was an excellent panel, at the Milken Global Conference. Some of the worlds top extrepreneurs and brilliant minds attended this conference in California.



    Speakers:
    Gavin Andresen, Chief Scientist and Board Member, Bitcoin Foundation
    Megan Burton, Founder and CEO, CoinX, Inc.
    Charlie Lee, Software Engineer, Coinbase Inc.; Creator, Litecoin
    Brock Pierce, Co-Founder, GoCoin

    Bitcoin evokes surprisingly strong emotions, not only among investors, but technophiles, entrepreneurs and those seeking alternate forms of payment and currency. With recent issues surrounding some of the exchanges, Bitcoin's rapid rise seems to have cooled--which exposes another significant problem, namely that building and maintaining a stable currency infrastructure does not happen overnight. Yet Bitcoin and its major offshoots and competitors clearly serve a growing need, one that many traditional investors did not realize existed. This panel will examine not only how Bitcoin and other "cryptocurrencies" work, what markets they serve and how they might survive and grow in the future. We'll discuss another set of key questions: What kind of regulation is likely in the wake of the Mt. Gox debacle? And how can government oversight be made compatible with the mission of virtual currencies?

    You tricked me Wiz! I clicked on this snippet thinking "OMG BHW has a Crypto section!?!?!" only to
    be stricken down with depression that what I thought existed only taunted me with what doesn't exist. :(
