    Fireside Chat with Jeff Booth & Troy Cross (Portland BitDevs Meetup)

    Kimpton Hotel Vintage

    We are so thrilled to announce that Jeff Booth will be coming IN PERSON!

    FIRESIDE CHAT WITH TROY CROSS AND JEFF BOOTH You certainly will not want to miss this one! Expect a fascinating discussion between two of the brightest minds in the Bitcoin ecosystem, followed by a Q&A for the audience. Come prepared with questions!

    Jeff Booth is a Canadian Entrepreneur, Technology Leader, Author, and Strategic Adviser. In January 2020, Jeff released his now famous book “The Price of Tomorrow – Why Deflation is Key to an Abundant Future”. In it, he offers his provocative thesis about the current state of our economies and what must happen to enable a brighter future. Since then, he's become well known in the Bitcoin world, making the podcast rounds and providing a fascinating perspective on the global financial system. Most recently, Jeff co-founded and is the general partner of ego death capital, a Bitcoin ecosystem venture fund.

    Troy Cross is a Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Reed College where he teaches courses on the philosophy of religion, color, and the philosophy of mind, as well as lecturing in the humanities program. Prior to coming to Reed in 2010, he held positions at Yale and Merton College, Oxford. Troy's philosophical research interests center on foundational issues in metaphysics and epistemology, but has also been involved in bitcoin for over a decade, cultivating interest in a number of bitcoin-related issues in that time, most of all, the question of bitcoin mining’s present and future environmental impact.

    The Socratic Seminar events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing, and lively discussion. Inspired by other Bitdevs around the country, this is an event for those interested in discussing and participating in the research and development of Bitcoin and related protocols.

    We'll spend time discussing technical components: pull requests in the Bitcoin Core, lnd, network statistics, research papers, technical blog posts, and other relevant content.

    To complete the meeting, members are free to present open-source projects, companies, research, and other relevant materials.
