A major political event is scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., today to delve into the growing geopolitical implications of Bitcoin as a technology for financial freedom, cross-border payments, and wealth protection.
A collaboration between the nonprofit Bitcoin Policy Institute and the Cornell Brooks Institute for Technology Policy, the conversation, titled “Strategic Competition and Cryptocurrencies,” will include participation from noted Bitcoin proponent Matthew Baines, director of intelligence at Krebs-Stamos Group.
Also participating in the session will be Bloomberg correspondent Daniel Flatley, Chris Meserole, director of the Brookings Center for Artificial Intelligence, and Sarah Krebs, professor and director of the Cornell Brooks Institute for Technology Policy.
The event, scheduled for Wednesday at 12:00 PM ET, promises to be an important forum for experts, policymakers, and enthusiasts to analyze Bitcoin’s role in the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine and its broader implications, among other topics.
The event comes at a time when Bitcoin’s influence on global politics and economics is becoming increasingly clear. Due to its decentralized nature and pseudonymity, Bitcoin has been used by various parties in geopolitical conflicts, raising questions about the potential ramifications for nations, economies, and security.
As cryptocurrencies gain mainstream attention, understanding their impact on international affairs is more important than ever.
Key topics to be discussed at this event include:
- Bitcoin as a means of evasion: How parties involved in the conflict used Bitcoin to circumvent sanctions and secretly move money.
- Geopolitical implications: The broader implications of the conflict for international relations, as well as the evolving role of cryptocurrencies in shaping these dynamics.
- Policy Considerations: How are governments and regulatory bodies responding to the use of Bitcoin in geopolitical conflicts and what measures are being taken to address these challenges.
- The role of cryptocurrency in future conflicts: A forward-looking perspective on how cryptocurrencies will play a role in future geopolitical conflicts and what strategies countries may use to mitigate risks.
