"Deciphering Bitcoin, Blockchain and Banking - What You Always Wanted to Know"
Featuring Panelists: Mike Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Science-Inc. Bryce Suzuki, Managing Partner, Bryan Cave
This is your chance to understand cryptocurrency and blockchain from a legal and business perspective. How will it impact your practice or are you an investor who is interested in investing? These are just some of the questions that will be answered on March 15 by our legal and business panelists. This is a hot topic--even a country (Venezuela) announced in February that it has created its own cryptocurrency called the petro and claims to have raised $735 million. You should not miss this event.
*Registration available at the door, space permitting, for an additional $15
