During the 2008 financial crisis, Bitcoin was introduced via an anonymously published white paper on the internet. Fourteen years later, this new form of digital money has been embraced by millions of Americans and has become a major subject in policy discussions throughout the United States.

As politicians and regulators struggle to grasp Bitcoin’s potential, it’s important to understand how Bitcoin fits into the values and ethos that our nation was built on, the opportunities Bitcoin offers to the American people ranging from free speech to free exchange, and how Bitcoin could disrupt today’s financial, commercial, and energy systems, potentially on the scale of the internet itself.

Please join us as we discuss how Bitcoin fits into America’s past, present, and future.
