Jules Verne’s classic novel, “Around the World in 80 Days” took Phileas Fogg, and readers, around the world on a 20k bet to see if it could be done in 80 days. Would the bet today have been done in cryptocurrency? How amazed would Phileas have been with the range of blockchains and dramatically varied viewpoints about their regulation? This session will lift the Fogg on this important new sector.
