Btc is about transparency of the ledger.
Btc Isn't money

#Multi-Sig vs Cold storage
@Will O Brien ceo BitGo
2014 is the year of multisig
Only 0,83% of btc is stored yet in multisig.
MS will bring security to the btc industry and should be embraced by all players!
Multi-sig providers may become the new banks.
MS could be organized centralized with trustees like bitgo or decentralized
Multi-Sig = 3 partys are involved, keys start with "3"

Price will not come down to zero
Btc Price impacts: mining, gold price, dollar price, traders
Btc 0,60 compared to gold 1000 or stocks 7500 per head / global
Price end of 2014 still could go to 10k (prediction from last year) but unlikely
Technology into unrelated areas
Concerns will be addressed

#Future of Altcoins panel
Peter C Earle
Millions of Altcoins coming
There are no altcoins who could catchup with btc right now, because of missing critical mass of community. Dodge was an exception which is hard to explain.
Miners are the most difficult asset to start a new coin.
Altcoins had an negative impact on bitcoins, because it costs attention.
#oportunity of bitcoin
#Revolution of bitcoin
What is bitcoin?
-Security without locks, policy, trust.
Revolutions are slow and take time.
DNA turns biology into science
Bitcoin is DNA for money!
Goverments will try to regulate bitcoin, but bitcoin will regulate goverments.
