Description

The Great Tech Debate: Cryptocurrency is a Bubble

Startup Muster presents the Great Tech Debate, where experts go head to head on a tech topic and you get to decide who wins.

Our speakers are experts but that doesn’t mean they agree with the position they’re arguing. Their arguments are built on research to articulate both sides of the story, personal interests aside!

Our first for the year is titled 'Cryptocurrency is a Bubble’

Doors open at 6pm, join us for refreshments and some mingling before the debate kicks off at 6:30 with our speakers;
