Our Mission

Bitcoin - A Controversial Subject

Never before in the history of mankind could we observe the monetarization of an asset in real time. Some are certain that this new digital commodity will change money forever, while others are convinced that Bitcoin is just a bubble which will burst eventually.

Nobody knows how this socio-economic experiment will pan out but there are many who have strong and differing opinions about it. VoB provides a platform to discuss the potential benefits and pitfalls of Bitcoin.

The goal is to provide comprehensive understanding and enable all attendees to make well-informed decisions about Bitcoin related to their profession.
