On behalf of the APPG Blockchain Chair Martin Docherty-Hughes MP, and the Secretariat at Big Innovation Centre, we would like to invite you to our Evidence Meeting on CRYPTOCURRENCY & PAYMENTS.

Questions to inspire:

  • What is the current stage of Government’s and mainstream brands in accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment?
  • What does the current development of cryptocurrencies mean for financial stakeholders – How are they now responding/adapting to the developments?
  • How should cryptocurrency payment systems be regulated to make it safer for investors and less appealing to cybercriminals?
  • Should cryptocurrencies be seen as a security? A commodity? Or a property?
  • Will Government’s develop their own cryptocurrencies to rival those already in the market? (to follow China’s example)

Format:

There will be 4 to 8 formal Evidence Givers.

There will also be an opportunity to share your opinion and raise practical questions.

Press invited.

This event will be filmed.
