Beyond Bitcoin

Bitcoin & Beyond Summit is not only about Bitcoin and its incredible price appreciation throughout this year.

The panelists — the most brilliant and creative innovators in the crypto space — will most certainly discuss Bitcoin and its network, how Bitcoin adoption differs from one country to another, how outer space might provide the ultimate frontier of decentralization, as well as what role crypto media plays in the industry, among other issues.

“This conversation is not just to speculate on what the future may hold, but rather a coming together and exploration of how we can go about creating that future,” said Ben Caselin, Head of Research & Strategy at AAX, and co-host at the summit.

He went on to say that Bitcoin and Beyond is about really understanding what the implications are of this new asset class and how we can direct all this creative energy that we find across the industry towards the most useful and socially beneficial goals.
