In this talk, computational astrophysicist turned investment banker Joseph Wang will slice through some of the hype, debunk some myths and share his experiences developing open-source financial software for Bitcoin trading.  He will explain why Bitcoin is a dangerous, terrible investment that most people shouldn't touch, why that's a good thing and share his thoughts gathered while observing Bitcoin.
 

What are people
 really using Bitcoin for? 

What does Bitcoin mean for the future of finance in Hong Kong, China, and the world? 

How will Bitcoin transform Hong Kong financial industry, for better or worse? 

And perhaps most importantly, are you in a business that will profit handsomely from the Bitcoin era or is your business a dinosaur about to be destroyed by the Bitcoin asteroid?  

Come to the talk and find out what Dr. Wang thinks.
