I was asked to speak at Virtual Currency Today Summit recently. It was a compelling conference held in a super trendy corner of Boston.
My panel was dedicated to exploring the value of accepting Bitcoin to online retailers. You can see it here:
I was initially skeptical that this panel, which consisted of only myself, Andrew Hemingway and moderator Sam Ditzion, would produce enough insights to justify the full hour allotted to it. Well in the end, we were able to fill the time and could have gone on much longer.
Andrew Hemingway, a former candidate for governor of New Hampshire, looked at Bitcoin through the lens of a t-shirt retailer (the same one responsible for the extreme manliness enhancing Three Wolf Moon shirt).
I looked at Overstock.com’s experience as the first major online retailer accepting the virtual currency. There were several insightful questions offered from the audience. The video of the session is very worth watching.
