Scotland's first Bitcoin Conference will bring the community together to discuss and learn more about the opportunities that crytpocurrencies provide for both our local and global communities.
Top speakers from the Bitcoin ecosystem around the globe (including the Bitcoin Foundation, BitPay and PeerNova) will be coming to Edinburgh to discuss the key issues. We'll look more closely into issues relating to the underlying technology, entrepreneurship, investment and regulation amongst many others.
Join us in Edinburgh on the 23rd of August, and get involved in the key event in Scotland in 2014 that looks at the future of the digital economy.
