MTBIT – our Remittances & Blockchain Day at IMTC, is an open forum (by invitation only) where Blockchain-based protocols such as Bitcoin, Ripple, etc. will be discussed in a Roundtable setting moderated by Hugo Cuevas-Mohr. Panelists will introduce a range of practical subjects mostly directed towards emerging money transfer & remittance systems based on the new protocols that cryptocurrency systems such as Bitcoin, Ripple, etc, are bringing to the international money transfer world. We are inviting experts from companies and start-ups that are challenging traditional remittances methods in Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia.
The MTBIT Day will have morning sessions with a mid-morning coffee break, a mid-day Lunch and afternoon sessions with a mid-afternoon coffee break. In this afternoon break MTBIT attendees will visit IMTC’s Trade Fair. We will close the day with a Welcome Reception for great networking (with drinks, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment).
The MTBIT Day will be in English only. Upon completion of the day, participants will receive an IMTC’s MTBIT Day Participation Certificate.
In the afternoon author Aaron Koenig will present his new book “BITCOIN – Geld ohne Staat: Die digitale Währung aus Sicht der Wiener Schule der Volkswirtschaft”
Bitcoin – money without a state: The digital currency from the Vienna School of Economics point of view“
