Description

Refreshments will be served after the public lecture.


Amid the hype surrounding Bitcoin, the central purpose of “crypto” has been obscured. Until this changes, digital currencies are likely to remain marginalised by regulators, central banks and investment allocators, and also within academia.

The key step is to view digital currencies as providing the necessary incentives for those developing, validating, governing and participating in the decentralised internet. This is a socially and economically worthwhile purpose.

In this lecture, ANU Alumni Mr Grant Wilson will draw upon his experience in managing sovereign wealth funds and hedge funds in reframing the debate around digital currencies.
