Venture capital firm founding partner Tim Draper is slated to participate in a keynote panel taking place at the Hashers United Conference from October 10th-11th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The investor made headlines recently as the prevailing bidder in the United States Marshals auction for over 29,000 bitcoins worth nearly $18 million.
Those bitcoins, Draper said, would be used to establish a liquidity pool for the Vaurum, a bitcoin exchange designed for financial institutions.
“Bitcoin is a great alternative for some of these economies where inflation really saps the strength of a country’s economy,” Draper said on CNBC recently.
“I expect Pagos in Argentina, Pagatech in Africa, and in Mexico Coincove—all these companies will really thrive because people in those countries are not as confident in their own governments’ fiat currency.”
At the conference, Mr. Draper will take part in the panel that will examine the future of cryptocurrency when it comes to taxation, regulation, and future implications — very important topics, indeed.
Only one other panelist is confirmed for this particular discussion, Jordan Modell. Modell serves as the CEO of the Internet Archive Federal Credit Union.
Additional keynote panelists will be announced as they are confirmed.
The discussion takes place at 9am on Friday, October 10th at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino.
