Oxford-style Debate: Bitcoin, Opportunity or Scam?
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
