Gibraltar to Hold Seminar on “Decrypting the Myths” on Thursday, December 4

KPMG Gibraltar, a company that provides audit, tax and advisory services, and operating in 155 countries worldwide, is helping out the organizers of the “Decrypting the Myths,” a one-day seminar in Gibraltar. For the purpose the company has teamed up with Hassans law firm, another renowned entity in the country.

According to the announcement, the two organizations plan to host the seminar will host panels and speeches from financial and digital currency experts such as Jon Matonis, a founding member of the Bitcoin Foundation and Eric Benz of GoCoin. Jon Matonis though resigned from the Bitcoin Foundation, still helping out Bitcoin and promoting it as a private supporter.

The announcement from the organizers says that the global experts in the digital currency space provide up to 200 delegates with the knowledge and insight needed to cut through the complexity of this fascinating and often misunderstood emerging technology. Bitcoin has long been misunderstood by the governments and agencies, and it is time to educate them.

Nonetheless, a specially designed program is expected to offer new initiates to the technology an introduction to its workings and potential to everyone participating in the event. Thereafter, a series of specialists will address the industry’s latest developments and the topics most pertinent to local businesses.

According to the sources at KPMG, its Managing Director, Micky Swindale will welcome the attendees and then hand over the floor to the Minister for Financial Service and eGaming, Albert Isola to open the event. Once the formalities are over, founding Board Director of the Bitcoin Foundation, Jon Matonis, will then begin proceedings and introduce Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Experts to Put Their Views in the Seminar

Eric Benz of GoCoin will then talk about the applicative and marketing potential of digital currencies before introducing Miles Paschini, Group President of Gibraltar based payments group Wave Crest. Several other speakers too have been lined up for the event to help out attendees get information and explore the digital currency.

Talking to media Mickey Swindale said that since their inception, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general have met with a mixed response. According to him, despite their enormous potential for good, they have a chequered reputation which he believes is largely propagated by a lack of understanding and clarity on the issues they raise.

He added that an event such as this is the perfect opportunity to provide both new initiates and experienced crypto-enthusiasts with a clear and unequivocal appraisal of the industry from those at its forefront. We hope this will constitute a seminal event for Gibraltar and genuinely decrypt some myths.
