Starting Friday and continuing until Sunday, speakers and guests from around the world will gather in London to discuss Bitcoin and its future. Notable speakers include Richard Stallman (Founder of the Free Software Movement), Max Keiser (American finance broadcaster with a show on RT), Denis Roio (a.k.a. jaromil, a long time free software movement activist) and Birgitta Jonsdottir (Current member of the Icelandic parliament and former Wikileaks spokesperson).

 

Featured below are three talks complete with descriptions, these examples will give a taste for what the Bitcoin conference will be like:

Richard Stallman, Digital Freedom: the context for Bitcoin - Saturday, Room C – 16:00 – 17:00

Freedom in the digital society is threatened in many ways. Stallman will present several of these threats, and explains how a currency such a Bitcoin can help protect us from some of them.

Birgitta Jonsdottir, No Privacy – No Freedom - Saturday, Room C – 14:00 – 14:30

Jonsdottir will focus on the importance of encryption, privacy and freedom. Direct democracy and accessibility of information in her talk.

Pavol Luptak, How to build free-markets and other anonymous services - Sunday, Room A – 13:00 – 13:30

The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate how it is possible in the current non-anonymous and controlled Internet to build and maintain highly anonymous TCP services necessary for free-markets e-shops. It will be explained how it is possible to interconnect _anonymously_ Tor onion services to non-anonymous server housing/domains and how to conduct a free-market business for the most time. At the end of the presentation a perfect voluntary Gamma system will be described.

Topics range from Seasteading to the macroeconomics of Bitcoin. The conference this year also features a lot of notable Linux users. View the full list of speakers here, and the schedule for talks here.
