Making Sense of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency


Loading Events

Join experts Fred Wilson (a leading venture capitalist since 1987) and Steven Johnson (a popular science author), who will guide the audience in a discussion about blockchain, bitcoin, and cryptocurrency — what it is, how it came about, and what’s next. Since President’s Council members love STEM education, they will explain how this phenomenon touches every part of STEM, and why it is so important to understand now more than ever.
