Virtual Meeting - Bitcoin - Jonathan Hubbard & Corey Silva
June 8, 2021 -- 11:00 am to 12:15 pm
Topic: Bitcoin: Wave of the Future or Speculative Play?
The cryptocurrency bitcoin hit an all-time high in early 2021, prompting many investors and investmentprofessionals to consider whether it is appropriate for their portfolios. Several key considerations will be discussed. It has been through several boom and bust price cycles, with the latest boom occurring during a period of increased interest in risk assets among investors. The rise of populism and antigovernment sentiment has increased the interest in cryptocurrencies that operate outside of the traditional financial system. Policymakers are circling seeking to tighten the regulatory frameworks & centralize oversight. There is a large and growing ecosystem of crypto exchanges, banks and service providers looking for ways to innovate the space. A huge amount of energy must be generated to run the high speed computers. Is it here to stay?
