"Will Bitcoin Survive?" - Lecture by Professor William Luther of Kenyon College.

Four years ago, the cryptocurrency bitcoin was little more than a mere curiosity among techno-utopians, anarcho-capitalists, and monetary economists. Today it is commonly the subject of mainstream media reports. What is bitcoin? Why do people accept it? Will bitcoin survive? Dr. William Luther considers the prospects of the most widely accepted cryptocurrecy to date--and the digital alternatives it has spawned.

Light refreshments will be served before the event.
