From Bitcoin to Ethereum and Litecoin to Tether, there are now over 4,000 cryptocurrencies in circulation. In economic theory, money is said to have three primary functions: a medium of exchange; a store of value; and a unit of account. So how does crypto fulfil these roles? And what does the continuing process of digitalisation of the world’s financial systems mean for the future of money?

Writer and tech critic Maria Farrell chairs a discussion with digital evangelist Dinis Guarda; John Turner and Will Quinn, authors of Boom and Bust: A Global History of Financial Bubbles; and Jillian C York, Director for International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the author of Silicon Values.

Venue ( Address ): 

Arnolfini Gallery, Bush House, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol BS1 4QA
