Ox­ford-style De­bate: Bit­coin, Op­por­tu­nity or Scam?

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - STRATEGIST -

Bit­coin has en­tered 2018 at a price of $15,000. Less than a year ago, the cryp­tocur­rency was val­ued at less than $1,000. The re­cent growth in cryp­tocur­rency has led to count­less news pieces on the phe­nom­e­non, world­wide in­ter­est and sig­nif­i­cant prof­its for many of those in­volved. The suc­cess of Bit­coin has also gen­er­ated many con­cerns. Will the cur­rency chal­lenge the hege­mony of state-backed cur­ren­cies? Is it just a Ponzi scheme destined to crash, and how ex­ten­sively is the cur­rency be­ing used for il­licit pur­poses? Join the Bri­tish Cham­ber of Com­merce in China and the China-Bri­tain Busi­ness Coun­cil at the Bri­tish Em­bassy for an Ox­ford-style de­bate on the topic. When: Fe­bru­ary 7, 6 pm-9 pm Where: The Bell Pub, Bri­tish Em­bassy Bei­jing, No.11 Guanghua Lu, Chaoyang district Cost: Free Con­tact: 8525-1111
