Spending with cash is easy & fast; spending with a payment card is almost the same. But spending Bitcoin is a different matter: it can take many minutes to complete a transaction, with varying costs. And with rising values Bitcoin seems to be treated more as a commodity like gold, rather than a form of payment. Many now doubt that Bitcoin itself will ever achieve the goal of a ubiquitous electronic cash system competing with fiat currency.

But not so fast. First, developers have proposed solutions to more quickly & less expensively validate Bitcoin transactions. Also, Bitcoin's most prominent competitor, Ethereum, may shift away from the proof of work model that underpins Bitcoin to a proof of stake model that promises more efficient & inexpensive transactions. And perhaps there are other innovations over the horizon that will surpass even these.

So what does this mean for Bitcoin? And for other cryptocurrencies such as Ether & its thousands of progenies, from FileCoin to EOS to Tether? Join NYPAY for a bit of a lesson (but no quiz at the end) & a lot of discussion.

With special thanks to annual sponsor:
