About The Bitcoin Reformation

This April 2020, we’re hosting The Bitcoin Reformation. A conference to discuss the merits and challenges of Bitcoin’s social contract. Here’s why:

Bitcoin isn’t happening in a vacuum.

It’s happening right at the moment when trust in fundamental social institutions is shifting.

Bitcoin is alive for over 10 years now. Despite continuous attacks and scrutiny from authorities around the world, the world’s strongest and most steady network is still running 24/7, 365.

Bitcoin is here to stay – what do those in power have to say?

For the first time in Belgium and neighboring countries, The Bitcoin Reformation will offer an industry-wide platform for a discussion on the merits and challenges of Bitcoin and digital assets in general. It’s the event the Benelux has been waiting for, featuring speakers from across Europe and beyond.

The conference is organized by the Vires in Numeris Foundation, a private independent organization founded to spread the word about digital assets, and the future of money. It will attract a broad audience including investors, bankers, researchers, students, regulators, industry experts, financial institutions and more.

Over 30 speakers from varying backgrounds will debate the cornerstones of Bitcoin’s social contract: the need for hard money, privacy, and decentralization.

Join us to learn more about what’s on the horizon for Bitcoin.
