11/03/2021 9:00am11/03/2021 10:00 amAmerica/Los_AngelesTechnology & Innovation: Demystifying CryptocurrencyCrypto seems full of contradictions and jargon, the purview of cyberpunks and rebels.  Yet, some have said that if bitcoin hits $100K, half the world's billionaires will be crypto billionaires.  These are consumers in our regular economy. Billions are locked up in DeFi pools, hundreds of millions are spent on NFTs (digital art), and institutions continue to enter the space. Join Emmy Sobieski in this discussion all about the world of cryptocurrency. This talk will be focused on providing a perspective of where we have been and where we are going in the crypto world, from the early internet to the current transition from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0. Learn the ins and outs of how bitcoin has transformed our financial ecosystem and arm yourself with key terms, some fluency, and most importantly a sense of perspective. Emmy made a 15-minute YouTube video on the subject, which you are welcome to view in advance of the session: https://youtu.be/8IImhdf0uncVirtual
