Symposium to explore implications of digital currency

A new way for consumers to pay for purchases online will be the focus of a Feb. 21 symposium at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, when the Ohio State Entrepreneurial Business Law Journal presents “In Bitcoin We Trust? A Forward Look at the Regulation, Use, and Growth of the Digital Currency.”

Bitcoin is a digital currency introduced by open source software in 2009. It is now used in more than 62,000 commercial transactions daily, and well-known retailers are beginning to accept it as a form of payment.

Panel discussions at the February symposium will explore the implications for Bitcoin for central banking, consumer protection concerns, and its role in the space between regulated and black markets. David Mills, assistant director of the Federal Reserve Board, will deliver a keynote speech at the event.

The symposium is free, and attendees can earn CLE credit. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for those who register by Feb. 17.
