BTC Prague Briefing, 6 June 2024

BTC Prague

The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed this is not a regular edition of the Bitcoin Briefing. The LondonLink team will be attending BTC Prague, Europe’s No.1 Bitcoin event (get in touch if you’ll be there too) next week - 13-15 June. 

So instead of our regular Bitcoin news (head to our LinkedIn and X profiles for an instant fix), we’ll preview the show's most exciting sessions.

The Evolution of Mining

Experts will discuss technological advancements in hardware and software and efficiency improvements driving Bitcoin mining. The discussion will cover the technical challenges, mining breakthroughs, and future technology prospects.

Building Bitcoin Businesses

This panel will unite Bitcoin entrepreneurs and technologists to discuss business models, regulations, tech needs, investment strategies, and adoption, offering practical insights for building profitable Bitcoin enterprises.

Fiat Is Retarded

Fiat economics consists of patently ridiculous beliefs, easily refuted by basic logic and everyday experience, according to speaker Allen Farrington, who thinks we need to refute these more often and will present a handy guide on how to do it.

Onboarding the Next Billion People

What strategies, tech advancements, and education are needed for mass Bitcoin adoption by the next tranche of believers? This session will cover tackling barriers and finding practical solutions to making Bitcoin even more accessible and beneficial to a global audience.

Michael Saylor

Friday morning starts with Michael Saylor, Executive Chairman of MicroStrategy and a vocal Bitcoin advocate. Saylor makes substantial investments in the cryptocurrency through MicroStrategy and promotes it as a primary treasury reserve asset. 

Bitcoin as a Tool of Freedom

Bitcoin's decentralised and censorship-resistant nature positions it as a powerful tool for combating political oppression and promoting individual freedoms. Panellists, including justice and free speech advocate Stella Assange, will explore how Bitcoin can protect human rights, support activists, and provide financial autonomy in politically oppressive environments.

Unveiling the Future of Hard Money

This panel discussion will examine Bitcoin's potential to reshape the future of hard money from a macroeconomic perspective. Leading economists, financial analysts, entrepreneurs, and bitcoin experts will explore how bitcoin influences global markets, its role in the evolving financial landscape, and its potential to act as a hedge against inflation and economic instability. 

Bitcoin Can Work for You

For most users, Bitcoin's best use case is buying and hodling for long periods of time. But Bitcoin also offers a myriad of opportunities for financial growth. Maximising its benefits requires a deep understanding of how to use it effectively, and an expert panel will share their experience and expertise.

Back to Cypherpunk

In a finale to the event, masked panellists will revisit the cypherpunk ethos, exploring its principles and how they continue to influence the development and philosophy of Bitcoin. They will discuss the historical context of the cypherpunk movement, its impact on Bitcoin, and its relevance in today's digital age.
