Title

Bitcoin, Blockchain and Crypto: What's The Difference?

Event Description

​Via Webcast


Thursday, August 13 
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
 
One of the most common objections of crypto skeptics is this: "I love blockchain but I'm not sure about bitcoin."
 
It's an easy objection to make, but what does it actually mean? What is the difference between blockchain and bitcoin? Where does one start and the other end? And what does a blockchain actually do, anyway?
 
Matt Hougan of Bitwise Asset Management will explain in plain English what a blockchain actually is, how it differs from bitcoin, and how to think about the investment opportunities in each space. Pushing past buzzwords, Matt will dig into the fundamentals and provide you with a common-sense framework for analyzing the space.
 
Key topics include:
  • When do private blockchains trump public blockchains like bitcoin...and vice-versa?
  • Why do we need more than one cryptoasset?
  • What's the best approach to investing in the bitcoin/crypto/blockchain space?
Matt Hougan is Managing Director, Global Head of Research for Bitwise Asset Management.  Matt is one of the world's leading experts on crypto, ETFs, and financial technology. Bitwise Asset Management is the creator of the world's first cryptocurrency index fund. Hougan is also Chairman of Inside ETFs, the world's largest ETF conference.
