Several industry leaders in the bitcoin landscape are slated to meet up today at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley to discuss the future of bitcoin and digital currency.
Taking place between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. local time today, the roundtable is being hosted by the Berkeley Master of Financial of Engineering Program. Twenty-two Haas students will be allowed to attend the event in-person (on a first-come, first-served basis), and another 100 students will be able to stream the event on WebEx — Berkeley’s platform for streaming video (link).
Later in the day, a video recording of the roundtable will be made available on the engineering program’s official website, located here.
Here’s who’s on the panel:
- Michael Casey: Senior columnist, Wall Street Journal (covering global economics and markets).
- Jesse Powell: CEO, Kraken. Kraken is a fast-growing crypto-currency exchange that allows for the trading of more than just bitcoin, such as litecoin and even dogecoin.
- Kevin Zhou: Chief economist, Buttercoin. Another bitcoin-trading exchange, but has not publicly launched yet.
- Tariq Dennison: Founder, GFM Group in Kong Kong.
Executive director of the Master of Financial Engineering Program at the Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley, Linda Kreitzman, will be moderating the event.
Kreitzman helped launch the Financial Engineering program at the Haas Business School in 2000, and serves as an advisor to start-ups both here in the United States and in Europe.
