Bitcoin promises faster, cheaper, safer payments, but can it deliver? Why does Bitcoin and its ecosystem continue to grow despite regular headlines about its volatility and the shady characters who use it as a medium of exchange? Why do Bitcoin enterprises continue to command growing amounts of venture capital? Can or should your financial institution engage directly? If not, do cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin present indirect risks and exposure to your financial institution? Join us for a primer on the opportunities, challenges, and risks of Bitcoin and virtual currencies. Learn how to anticipate, identify, and mitigate exposure to the volatility and uncertainties that surround them.
