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
Please join the Ohio State Entrepreneurial Business Law Journal for this year’s annual symposium, In Bitcoin We Trust? A Forward Look at the Regulation, Use, and Growth of the Digital Currency, featuring keynote speaker David Mills, assistant director of the Federal Reserve Board.
How did you pay for your last online purchase? Bitcoin is a digital currency introduced by open source software in 2009. It is now used for payment in more than 62,000 commercial transactions daily, and has roused the interest of speculators across the globe. Online retailers like Overstock.com have announced plans to accept the currency, with more soon to follow. The symposium’s panel discussions will explore the implications of Bitcoin for central banking, consumer protection concerns in transactions using the currency, and its role in the space between the regulated and black markets.
Admission to the symposium, as well as breakfast and lunch, will be free for registered attendees. Pending approval, registrants may obtain approved CLE credit for attendance.
