The Bitcoin Game #14 - Cryptocurrency Regulation Talk from the Texas Bitcoin Conference

Published on April 7th, 2015 by Rob


Welcome to episode 14 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

I recently attended the Texas Bitcoin Conference, and had a great time. I got to meet fellow LTB podcasters John Barrett and John Bush, people I listened to well before I started this podcast. I also got to meet some Bitcoin heroes of mine, as well as listeners to this show.

To kick off my content from the conference, I bring you this informative but somewhat scary talk about Cryptocurrency Regulation, delivered by the very knowledgeable Carol Van Cleef. The presentation is followed by a panel discussion, and ends with questions from the audience.

Cryptocurrency Regulation Panel
Carol Van Cleef, Partner, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP
Joel Aud, Texas Department of Public Safety, Intelligence and Counter-Intelligence Division
Timothy L. Evans, Sr. Council, Enforcement, U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission
Helena Margarido, Partner at HMO Advogados and Cofounder of the Brazilian Bitcoin Foundation
Perianne Boring, Chamber of Digital Commerce
Paul Snow, CEO, Factom and the Texas Bitcoin Conference

I hope you'll tune in for upcoming episodes of The Bitcoin Game that will include details on what it was like for me to attend my first major Bitcoin conference, and you'll also get to hear my interviews with Bitcoiners including Erik Vorhees, Bruce Fenton, Shawn Wilkinson, John Bush, and many many more.

Now let's go back to Sunday morning, March 29, 2015, at the Texas Bitcoin Conference at the Moody Theater in Downtown Austin...
