Bitcoin Within The Legal System – February 25, 2021
This event is part of the “The Future Is Crypto” event series
In 2008 someone or a group of people that acted behind the name, Satoshi Nakamoto published the white paper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. Today its market cap is greater than that of Visa or Facebook!
Yet, even in the most regulated financial space, there is no one who can be tracked down, brought to the court for justice, or called upon to defend Bitcoin against regulators, organizations, or scientists that claim their patents regarding decentralized technologies, used as a core for Bitcoin, are their own discoveries – some even claim they are Satoshi Nakamoto.
In this event on the 25th of February, we welcome three individuals who are very active in the world of defending humanless Bitcoin organization against many different attacks, like the recent “patent war on Bitcoin”. What are the odds, who has the right upon what, and most of all, how can this be a valid court case if there is no human behind the Bitcoin?
