Why Bitcoin IS intrinsically valuable...

It has been said a lot. Bitcoin is risky because it not “backed” by any government, asset, or commodity and has no intrinsic value in and of itself. It is true that Bitcoin is risky, but not for any those reasons. Bitcoin is risky because it is an entirely new disruptive technology with revolutionary potential in an unknown regulatory environment. The risk lies in Bitcoin’s ability to persevere despite the uncertain regulatory climate and realize its unspoken potential. The jury is still out on that.

New Finance: Monthly Seminar - Bitcoin: Legal, Regulation, Exchanges

Bitcoin is a hot topic in Fintech right now so this Meetup explores some of the rapidly developing legal issues around using and setting up exchanges and using Bitcoin from both a merchant and consumer perspective. Is Bitcoin coming in from the cold? On the one hand Exchanges are getting regulated, even talking to the Fed, on the other hand some countries like Thailand have made it actually illegal to use Bitcoin. It's time for an update, especially for those thinking of adopting Bitcoin. 
This seminar will explore the latest themes and developments, the key Bitcoin players and their offerings.
