Women-powered Organizations Come Together to Bust Cryptocurrency Myths on October 13

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Rabbit Hole, a woman-powered blockchain community, and Melrose PR, a premier all-female blockchain communications agency, will host Bitcoin Basics Brunch on Sunday, October 13, kicking off LA Blockchain Week. The event, held at Expert Dojo in Santa Monica, will be aimed at newcomers to the crypto and blockchain space, where notable speakers discuss bitcoin's notorious reputation, breaking down misconceptions while providing key factual information.

Event speakers will map out bitcoin's path of innovation, which like any new technology can be unpredictable. Stephen Cole of the OC Bitcoin Network will speak on Why Bitcoin is a Big Deal. Attorney Marc Boiron of the law firm FisherBroyles will provide updated information on the fast-moving field of bitcoin regulation. Cory Klippsten, an investor and advisor to tech firms and startups, will challenge the often-held misconception that it is too late to buy bitcoin. Andrew Yang of Alto Financial will illuminate new possibilities in payments using the Lightning Network. Also, strategic advisor Ni'Coel Stark will show how true innovation requires a degree of risk. Rounding out the discussion will be Brett Musser from Edge Wallet, Zayi Reyes from Unstoppable Domains, Veronica Reynolds from the law firm BakerHostetler, Isaiah Jackson, author of the new book Bitcoin & Black America, and emcee Ann Willmott, who is a television producer and founder of The Rabbit Hole.

Sponsors include Lolli, Edge Wallet, a self-custody wallet solution for cryptocurrency; Virse, a virtual universe; and Unstoppable Domains, which provides human-readable cryptocurrency addresses on the Zilliqa blockchain. Attendees can win tickets to Crypto Invest Summit (October 15-16 in Los Angeles), a domain from Unstoppable Domains, or a copy of The Little Bitcoin Book, an essential new resource every crypto-curious person should read. They will also receive $10 in free bitcoin from Lolli.
