DETAILS
New York City has been called the "Finance Capital of the World" for good reason, but it could be falling short of that title. On August 8, 2015 the New York BitLicense came into effect. At least ten bitcoin companies announced they were stopping all business in New York State because of the new regulations. The New York Business Journal called this the "Great Bitcoin Exodus". If cryptocurrencies are the future of finance, why should the capital of finance be hamstrung by this erroneous regulation? Larry Sharpe is running for governor to change & innovate the state. He is one of the most supportive & knowledgeable politicians on the issue of cryptocurrencies. Join Startup Cities as we sit down for a fireside chat with Larry & discuss his solutions for the city & cryptocurrency.
