Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, and the Future of the Universe

For years people have been talking about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

And like all disruptive technologies, there will be winners and losers. In this Strategic Discussions event we will examine:

  • The Basics: Blockchain and Cryptocurrenies explained
  • The Historical Perspective: Previous disruptive technologies and their impact on industries and investments
  • The Opportunity: How to evaluate current investment opportunities
Our luncheon speakers include:
