Bitcoin's 3 Fatal Design Flaws - Positive Money

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/
MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives is a two-day international conference on alternative economic forms and the future of money organized by the Institute of Network Cultures on 21-22 March 2014 at Lab 111 (Arie Biemondstraat 111) in Amsterdam.
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
Speakers: Saskia Sassen, Bill Maurer, Franco Berardi, Tiziana Terranova, Eduard de Jong, Aaron Koenig, Brian Holmes, Matthew Slater, Lana Swartz, Beat Weber, Brett Scott, Dadara, Dette Glashouwer, Eli Gothill, Erin Taylor, Inge Ejbye Sørensen, Jamie King, Marijke Hoogenboom, Max Haiven, Quinn du Pont, Ron Peperkamp, Stefan & Ralf Heidenreich, Stephen Musoke, Taylor Nelms
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. The Alternatives Bazaar provides a platform to network, exchange ideas, and get involved and is open throughout the 22nd of March. Further activities at the event include art performances, a film program, video art installations and workshops.
More information, tickets and updates on the program: www.networkcultures.org/moneylab
MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives – 21-22 March 2014 Lab111: Arie Biemondstraat 111 Amsterdam Tickets are € 30,- (regular) and € 15,- (student discount) per day.
