С нашей точки зрения, аудитория включала в себя широкий спектр участников, начиная от тех, кто просто заинтересован о получении информации о Биткойн, и заканчивая профессиональными трейдерами и Биткоин энтузиастами.

My presentation focuses on the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency industry developments in North America by examining several indicators from the Bitcoin network. Specifically, I will detail developments relating to regulation, media interest, venture capital investment, merchant adoption -- and more factors that have implications on the viability of Bitcoin in the United States and the rest of North America. Although no one can be certain of how the Bitcoin environment will develop in the future, the presentation will explore several trends illustrating how Bitcoin is poised to realize continued growth and adoption in North America, along with potential concerns that may impede this growth. Hopefully, after my presentation attendees will have a better understanding of both the current market environment in the United States and where its heading in the future.

Martin Albert
CEO at Bitalo AG (Finland)

Martin is a full-time Bitcoin enthusiast from the very beginning of the cryptocurrency era. He has recently be appointed as cryptocurrency expert for cointelegraph and thinks about how to make the Bitcoin world a better place. For him, the most exiting thing is its political aspect - you and only you control your wealth. Having lost quite some Bitcoins in the past, Martin understood that centralized exchanges are in no way different than normal banks, where you give up control over your money. This inspires him to create a service for the Bitcoin world where the Bitcoins are always safe and in control of the users.


Presentation:
What is the benefit of Bitcoin over conventional currencies when you have to hand over your money over to third party services that take once again control over your funds, just like classical banks? Bitcoin offers unique sophisiticated technical solutions that allow users to keep full control over their funds while at the same time users can use their currency "online" at bitcoin services. Also, in the light of discussed Bitcoin regulation(s), while regulators can easily close down centralized services, this is impossible for "private" peer 2 peer services. With Bitcoin it is possible to implement decentralized and secure mechanisms that, when implemented properly, can offer solutions that make it impossible for third parties to seize funds or to even prevent users from using bitcoin. The presentation will introduce these techniques based on multi-signature, time-lock transactions and decentralized setups.
