PPE Salon: Bitcoin: What Does the Future Hold?

March 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Hosts:
Joseph Porter and Vijay Boyapati

Salon Description:
Bitcoin has increased in value almost 1000% in the past year, and recently several institutional investors have bought hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of bitcoin. Will bitcoin continue to increase in value? And if it does, what impact will it have not only on financial institutions but also on global politics and how we think about money itself? Join PPE-affiliated graduate student Joseph Porter and Vijay Boyapati—software engineer, co-founder and former CEO of Dealupa, and author of “The Bullish Case for Bitcoin”—to explore these and other questions.

Participants in this PPE salon will be asked to read one article, linked below, and submit at least two discussion questions each ahead of time.

This opportunity is available to both UNC students and the PPE community. Registration is required, and seats are limited. Request your seat by using the form below.
