CEO Jimmy Nguyen and chief scientist Craig Wright discussed the implications of the technology, particularly for inclusion and a global peer-to-peer economy.
Last week, the University of Exeter in England welcomed nChain’s CEO Jimmy Nguyen and chief scientist Craig S. Wright. The event, titled “The Future of Bitcoin (Cash)”, was organized by University of Exeter Business School academic Dr Jack Rogers, and economics student Sebastian Ploetzeneder.
Dr. Rogers said that the event would be a good opportunity to raise questions about the technology and collectively explore the possibilities, particularly for underdeveloped countries. “This is a chance for people to ask Craig and Jimmy how bitcoin operates, how it could replace other currencies and whether in the future there could be just one form of global money. The panel will also discuss the implications it has for the way governments manage macroeconomic stability, and the impact it may have on people in underdeveloped countries,” Dr. Rogers said.
During the discussion, Dr. Craig S. Wright reiterated a major benefit that he has been pointing out in several other speeches: bitcoin is about inclusion.
The truth of the matter is, if we want a free world, we need to have open transactions and we need to have free money.

In a Yours post, event co-organizer Ploetzeneder says the event was successful
“It was a win in many ways: it put the University of Exeter on the map for what will be a leading blockchain university (with its new cryptocurrency module coming later this year), attendees got to gain insights from the 2 experts in the field, and—not the least of all wins—it opened the door for mainstream acceptance and adoption of Bitcoin Cash in a world where anyone can transact with anyone else around the planet, a world that leads to the wealth of nations as we have never experienced it before,” he wrote.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BCH is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
