12:40 - 13:00 Industry Insight: Blue Sky Thinking: Bitcoin & deciphering what it means for today's financial markets

Mark Lamb - CEO,, Coinfloor
Bitcoin was the best performing asset class of 2013. Despite this success, relatively few people understand what Bitcoin is and and what it means for global financial markets. 20 years ago, it was nearly impossible to predict what impact the internet would have on financial markets, but Bitcoin has great potential as a disruptive technology and platform for capital allocation. It is not simply money for the internet; rather, Bitcoin is the internet of finance.
