New Documentary “The Bitcoin Gospel” Shows Bitcoin to the

UK *Special Panel* Bitcoin Debate

Free event - all welcome.
Interested in learning more about Bitcoin? Join us for a panel discussion with a number of leading experts on the subject, including Brett Scott (Guardian journalist and author of The Heretics Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money from Pluto Press) & Ian Grigg of FinancialCryptography.com
Bitcoin is one of the biggest inventions of the digital age, but despite the media buzz, crypto currencies like Bitcoin are far from being viewed as real alternatives to fiat money. The recent collapse of the major Bitcoin exchange Mt Gox revealed just how much work was still needed to sure up the currency and its apparatuses before mainstream adoption would ever be achieved. So why are so many people excited about Bitcoin? This event will ask questions such as:
How do crypto-currencies challenge mainstream financial systems? Is Bitcoin a safe alternative to fiat money? Is Bitcoin a currency or a commodity and which outlook is more favourable to its long-term survival? What conditions do we need to create to encourage the mass adoption of Bitcoin? Will the emergence of crypto-currencies force government-backed fiat currencies to innovate? Is 2014 the breakout year for Bitcoin?

MoneyLab: bitcoin and alternative currencies - international conference in Amsterdam, 21-22 March

I'm working at the Institute of Network Cultures and we are putting together an international conference on Bitcoin and alternative revenues. We're going to have free crowdfunding workshops where people can sign up and also a Bitcoin ATM! If you're interested in such matters, here is the official announcement:
MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives Sprouting New Digital-Economic Forms in Times of Crisis
International Conference, Bazaar, Workshops, Art & Performances
March 21-22, 2014 Lab111 Arie Biemondstraat 111 Amsterdam
Program: networkcultures.org/moneylab/program-3/conference-sessions/

The conference brings together top international speakers – researchers, activists, filmmakers, visual artists and performance artists, designers and programmers – to critically probe alternative economic models, payment systems, revenue models and local and digital currencies against the backdrop of the ongoing global economic stagnation.
Topics: Bitcoin | Crowdfunding | Mobile Money | Digital Currencies | Local Currencies | Economic Crisis & Activism | Money and Art | Alternative Banking Systems | Monetization | Dismantling Global Finance | Alternative Economies

Is crowd funding signalling an cultural shift in art production and artists’ relationships with their audiences. What lessons are to be learned from mobile money payment systems in Africa? What is the future of internet-based currencies like Bitcoin? What are the technical and economic criticisms of Bitcoin, and how can they be fed back into the currency or be used to create others? Is it possible to imagine a future sustainable alternative network-economy? Is an equivalent of money even needed, and what would a non-monetary economy look like?
The MoneyLab Alternatives Bazaar complements the conference. The Bazaar presents organizations and initiatives directly involved with alternative revenue models and local currencies such as Qoin, Noppes, Next Nature & Eco Currency, Timebank CC, Peerby, and a Bitcoin ATM.

Leveraged Bitcoin Trading: This is THE REAL TRUTH!! Brett Scott - Blockchain Technology CoinScrum and Proof of Work: Tools for the Future - Brett Scott Culturehacking: Brett Scott Bitcoin Cash London Meetup LIVE (Roger Ver, Rosco Kalis, Tobias Ruck, Brett Scott)

Then Brett Scott, author of Hacking the Future of Money, a book about financial regulatory reform, came on to talk about the same property of Bitcoin. He, however, tempered his statements with acknowledgement that Bitcoin acts as an important alternative to traditional banking. The writer Brett Scott warned about this last year: “Cashless society” is a euphemism for the "ask-your-banks-for-permission-to-pay society." Rather than an exchange occurring directly between the hotel and me, it takes the form of a "have your people talk to my people" affair. I want to look at Bitcoin’s design flaws here, so if you want to know more about the details of the currency itself, read How to Explain Bitcoin to your Grandmother by Brett Scott or this Chicago Federal Reserve paper for a central bank perspective. Bitcoin is a prototype While bitcoin lending upstarts like LoanBase, BTCJam, Bitbond woo investors with attractive returns and push its cause for a diversified portfolio, researcher Brett Scott who studies economic systems is less convinced that bitcoin as an alternative currency will save the day. In the paper, researcher Brett Scott writes: "There remain doubts as to the viability of Bitcoin within countries with poor infrastructure and technology access. Besides the issue of establishing trust in an otherwise poorly understood digital token system, there needs to [be] consistent internet availability and efficient electrical grids."
