Bitcoin & the Blockchain is the first of a series of O’Reilly Radar Summits, one-day events on disruptive technologies that are on the cusp of commercial viability.
This first Radar Summit will offer an overview of crypto currency, security and compliance, payments, smart contracts, and a glimpse into the future of bitcoin.
The Summit will be held in the Herbst Pavilion at Fort Mason, a unique art, performance, and meeting space on San Francisco’s waterfront in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
“Get beyond the buzz. Discover the new business models, complex challenges, and immense unrecognized opportunities that bitcoin – and the blockchain behind it – create.”
Space is limited, and at this moment registration costs $995 for a full Summit pass. The price is scheduled to increase to $1095 on January 17. The registration includes all sessions, panels, and demos, break refreshments and lunch, evening networking event, and a video compilation with recordings of all sessions from the event.
Program chairs Kieren James-Lubin, founding director of the Cryptocurrency Research Group, and Lorne Lantz, Bitcoin entrepreneur and educator. Speakers include Andreas Antonopoulos, Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin, Reid Hoffman, Mike Belshe, Bill Janeway, and Bitcoin developer Peter Todd. In the opening remarks, Tim O’Reilly will discuss why Bitcoin, the blockchain, and related technologies are on their rada, why they’re important, and what opportunities and disruptions they could create.
