PAST EVENT Monday April 26 2021

In 1971, America abandoned the gold standard. Since then, the U.S. and the world have been living in the era of fiat currency.

The rise of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and an assortment of other cryptocurrencies, however, are threatening to upend the status quo. Not backed by any sovereign entity, these currencies have the potential to fundamentally transform not only the global monetary and banking systems, but technology, art, media, law, and government itself.

To make sense of the rise of cryptocurrency and where it might all be headed, MI president Reihan Salam, sits down with Balaji Srinivasan, former CTO of Coinbase and former general partner at the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.

We hope you can join us for a conversation that will consider Bitcoin’s booming year, the varying stances governments around the world have taken towards cryptocurrency, and the broader implications of crypto protocols for the debates around surveillance, privacy, censorship, and de-platforming.
