Next Week's Meeting: Bill Repasky / Cryptocurrencies


Our guest speaker next Thursday will be Bill Repasky, Member, Frost Brown Todd. His topic will be Cryptocurrency: What Are Cryptocurrencies, Their Use-Cases and the Unanswerable Questions of Their Future in Our Economy.

Lunch will be the Hot Brown; a gluten-free/vegetarian option is available upon advance request. RSVP by NOON Monday: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RCL081822

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have the potential to fundamentally remake the world’s financial institutions and payments systems. Or - is this all Pie-In-The-Sky dreaming by its promoters and early investors? We will explore cryptocurrencies, beginning with the history of cryptocurrencies and their basic architecture. We will discuss its current regulation and use cases, both in the abstract and in the real-world, and its demonstrated performance as a “medium of exchange and a “store of value”, both core attributes of all forms of money.
