GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 16th January at noon SLT: GeekSpeak – The Future of Money

 


Last week there was a huge drop in the price of bitcoin and serious inflation is threatened in all currencies.  So now is the time to dive deep into the subject of future money.  What will we use as the basis of value?  Bitcoin, gold, fiat currencies?

What will happen when money can carry a program?  When there can be restrictions on how it can be used?  When you can send money to your kids and your grandchildren will not be able to use the money to buy drugs? When punishments for criminals could include restrictions on how they can use money?  When microtransactions are possible?

When we meet aliens for the first time what money system will they use?  And how will we do business with them?

And what will happen to the old money that we all ….. love?  Come and discuss your future wealth.  It might change your life.  Bring some friends!

GeekSpeak – the rise and rise of bitcoin. Join the Discussion Saturday 6/1 at 12pm SLT


Bitcoin is nearing 10k US dollars this week, so it is a good moment for all of us to get up to speed with what is happening in the cryptocurrency scene.

Why is bitcoin so important for the whole of humanity?  How much further will it rise before it completely takes over?  What will the world look like under a single monetary standard?  Will all countries be equal, or will some still manage to suppress others?

How will the culture change in a world of micropayments, where small amounts of money will change hands all the time, a world where your car will pay a few pennies to the road or to the traffic lights, and your phone will send a few cents to the streetlights.

Will corruption be impossible in a world where all data is stored on blockchains?

Are you too late to buy bitcoin or is there still a chance to make a fortune?

Get ready for the world of the future.  Bring your bitcoin mining pickaxe.

GeekSpeak – Where is money going? Join the discussion Oct 27th at 12pm SLT




This week is the 10-year anniversary of the invention of Bitcoin.  Let’s take this opportunity to explore what bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have brought us.

Many countries around the world are now ditching the US dollar.  What currency will they take up instead?  Could this be the best chance for cryptocurrencies?

What will the financial future of the world look like?  Will we end up with a world currency?  Will all our present currencies disappear?  What effect will the change in currencies have on the world economy?  Which parts of the world will thrive and which will perish?

Can you see a future world without money at all?  How would such a world work?

Come and get some insights into our financial future.  Your retirement depends on it.

GeekSpeak – in the future, will virtual currencies become real life currencies?


Will it be possible in the future to go to the supermarket and buy eggs and milk with WOW gold?  Or linden dollars? Maybe it will be possible in the east, where the exchange rate will give virtual currencies greater buying power.  

Are people playing games now (apart from child slaves in sweatshops) just for the in-game money?  How much would you have to earn in a game to make it worth playing?

If you owned a RL store would you ever accept game money?  Will there be WOW banks in the future?

Would you feel safe trusting game creators and their currencies, whatever promises they made?

Come and discuss this new field of economics in our new digital age.

GeekSpeak SL – the new world of bitcoin. Join the discussion August 19th at 12pm SLT



This week a bitcoin will probably be worth more than 5000 US dollars.  It is time to acknowledge that it will change the world.

What will change in our society?  What will change in our lives?  Come and talk about a fully automated world where machines pay machines.  A world where your insurance company pays your toothbrush to order new toothpaste from your personal delivery drone.  A world where your self-driving car pays the carwash itself.  A world where most of the jobs that people do now are simply not there because money can manage itself.

Would you like to live in such a world?  Or does it fill you with horror?  Come to GeekSpeak and discuss the internet of money.  Learn how to set yourself up for this alien future.
