Bitcoin has often been dismissed as the currency of criminals and frauds, but those in the FinTech space have thought differently for a long time. Even when they didn’t defend bitcoin explicitly, the interest in blockchain has only grown. And bitcoin is performing better against the US dollar than any other currency. This week, Brett explores the growth of bitcoin and blockchain, further investigating the possibilities with Michael J. Casey from the MIT Media Lab (and our blockchain correspondent ;)), Chris Skinner of FSCL, who is starting a VC fund for blockchain startups, Brock Pierce and Bart Stephens, Managing Partners of Blockchain Capital and Jeremy Allaire of Circle. Jim Marous of The Financial Brand will also join the discussion.
