The Bitcoin Cash Speaker Series is back, and it promises to be better than ever.
On Oct. 25, members of crypto community will gather again in London for another evening of discussions on the developments in the Bitcoin BCH ecosystem. According to event co-organizer Cryptartica, one of the goals of the London Bitcoin Cash Speaker Series II—the follow-up to the first Speaker Series event in July—is “to nurture the local BCH community in London.”
Among the lineup are Kenneth Haugaard, director of business development at CoinGeek, and Gabriel Cardona, senior BCH developer at Bitcoin.com and founder of BitBox, who will discuss how their companies and projects are helping spread Bitcoin BCH adoption.
Martin Dempster, VP of innovation at BrewDog UK, will also speak about the company’s experience in adopting BCH. The bar will be accepting Bitcoin BCH as payment at its Canary Wharf bar starting Oct. 19, but BrewDog is looking at expanding its BCH acceptance beyond just that location. On its website, the company said, “[W]e hope to eventually roll out this way of paying into all of our UK BrewDog Bars.”
The second half of the evening will see the focus of the discussions shift towards wallets. Alex Agut and Rafael Seibane, founders of HandCash, will talk about their journey towards creating a user-friendly wallet. In an interview with CoinGeek, Agut said the goal of HandCash is to create a Bitcoin BCH wallet that works the same way as cash would.
“Already, using Bitcoin Cash is an incentive. Because of low fees and instant transactions, they are more reliable and so we are working on a very, very secure zero-confirmation protocol so merchants can be secure that all the funds are in place and they get the money,” Agut said.
Alejandro de la Torre, VP for business and operations at BTC.com, will close the night.
The London Bitcoin Cash Speaker Series II is co-organized by Cryptartica and CoinGeek, and supported by partners Bitcoin Cash Association (BCA) and Bitcoin.com. The event will take place on Oct. 25 at Huckletree, located in the trendy Shoreditch ditch, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
