About this talk

Over the past year, bitcoin has boomed in popularity causing the price to increase by 224% in 2020 [1]. Surpassing the $40,000 barrier in January 2021, Bitcoin currently stands above $60,000 (as of 13.04.2021) [2]. Although Bitcoin continues to dominate the crypto market, altcoins are rising to prominence quickly with Litecoin and Ethereum becoming recognised as trusted assets. Paypal’s announcement to start supporting Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin cash further highlights the increased recognition of ‘smaller’ altcoins [3]. We will be joined by Bradley Duke, CEO and Co-Founder of ETC Group, to discuss: - An introduction to cryptocurrencies - The growth of Ethereum and Litecoin - The increasing adoption from institutional investors - The investment opportunity of cryptocurrencies For professional investors only. Capital at risk.
