What is the aim of the Bitcoin Masterclass organized by Innopay?
Jacob Boersma: For the past 3 years we have invited speakers on Bitcoin to our annual European payment summit to talk about this crypto-currency and how it is developing. Due to time constraints, there is never time at such a conference to go into depth about what Bitcoin is, how it works and where it is going. This Masterclass, for which we are working with Pierre Noizat of Paymium, will give attendees the chance to really make a deep dive into this fascinating topic and really explore both the opportunities and risks of Bitcoin.
