10:00 Introduction

10:05 Fireside Chat:
The Most Critical Issues Facing Bitcoin and the Bitcoin Network

  1. The technology developed to build and maintain the Bitcoin network is nearly 20 years old and it is expected to have a finite lifetime. Is the network becoming more vulnerable daily as cyber experts and nation-states seek to penetrate the system?
  2. The rapid development of Quantum Computers could challenge the SHA-256 Hashing Standard used by the Bitcoin network by 2027. Is there any defense that the Bitcoin foundation can mount to defend the integrity and continued safe functioning of the overall system?
  3. The “51 Percent Attack”. As the mining of Bitcoin is steadily moving to Super Miners and the mining network is less dispersed, the opportunity to dominate mining and a 51% attack increases.
  4. Will the US Government suddenly ban bitcoin because of the threat to the US Dollar?
