In the event organizers own words: “This conference and expo provides up-to-date information on the latest in FinTech business trends, funding models, investment strategies, next-generation payment solutions, multi-signature protocols, blockchain-based startups, and more…”

How the show is broken down:
We pulled clips from each guest (listed above) and provided our own commentary and reflections between each clip.
The subject matter ranges from opinions, Bitcoin stories, definitions and lots of discussion of each guest’s unique niche which made for a well-rounded and illuminating discussion.
