On December 3, 2013 the TechAviv Founders Club convened at the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange to discuss the topic that has captured the imagination of entrepreneurs worldwide — Bitcoin and the profound revolution of decentralized, math-based currency. We discussed Bitcoin’s present and future opportunities for startups in a town-hall style meeting led by presentations from some of Israel’s foremost thinkers and saw demos by some of our first Bitcoin startups. To get some regulatory perspective we invited Tomer Zaharovich, Senior Manager at PwC on stage for a lively discussion with the panelists. Jump to 1:23:20 to see the important exchange of views. Its clear we’ll need to work together, not against each other, to make things really work for everyone.
