Our bizarre future of Bitcoins, Blockchains and Smart Contracts

This talk explores the potential for Bitcoins, Blockchains and Smart Contracts to revolutionise the way we live, work and do business.


The meteoric rise of cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin in particular, has received global attention, not least from governments, entrepreneurs and researchers. Cryptocurrencies provide an attractive alternative to traditional fiat currencies via a distributed, trustless and self-governing framework which not only enables low-friction financial transactions around the globe but also preserves the freedom and privacy of spending inherent in cash transactions.

Come and learn about this brave new world from Professor William Knottenbelt, Director of Imperial College Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering.
