Video Of The Week: The NYS DFS Bitcoin Hearings

I don’t know who is going to watch all of these panels. There were five in total. I am not sure who is going to watch this video of our panel in its entirety. However, there are a number of fascinating issues raised in this discussion. From the role of regulation in the innovation economy, to the (I think false) choice between stopping bad actors and freedom to innovate, to the way a new technology comes to market. If you have two hours this weekend, you might want to put this on your TV and let it roll.

We were panel number one. I have watched parts of all five panels. I have included links to all of them below.

Here is the second panel (alternative virtual currencies, including the developer of Litecoin).

Here is the third panel (law enforcement)

Here is the fourth panel (entrepreneurs)

Here is the fifth panel (academics)

Reactions to these hearings have been all over the map. William sent me this video reaction from Andreas Antonopoulos which is worth watching if you still have time after (or instead of) watching eight hours of testimony.
