The Future of National Cryptocurrencies
– Is there a need, and how will they shape the business world?
Bitcoin and other decentralised cryptocurrencies have taken a giant leap lately. From being speculative financial objects it has become a central part of big corporates’ financial strategies and may soon become integrated in everyday payments.
- How will the general public and businesses adopt the new possibilities?
- Can the digital currencies compete with the national currencies,
- Are the National Banks prepared for competition?
BNCC and Advokatfirmaet Ræder have invited an exciting panel to analyse and discuss these essential questions.
