About the Program

Is bitcoin a good hedge against inflation? What is the bitcoin halving event and how does this affect bitcoin's price? Join our virtual fireside chat with Charles Hwang via Zoom. Charles will discuss how the current pandemic could accelerate the adoption of bitcoin, why bitcoin is still not dead, and what types of disruption may be primed to hit the financial system.
