CBDC's - A Dystopian Future?
Victoria Jones

In this talk I consider Central Bank Digital Currencies - CBDC's. Are they leading us towards a dystopian future? If so, why or why not? How do we explain to our friends, family and colleagues why Bitcoin is a better solution? Are they likely to believe us? In this talk, using my experience of learning about and using Bitcoin as a payment method in my dental retail business. I explore what the banks are attempting to achieve with CBDC's, how and why we can fight against them and I consider whether or not these strategies are likely to be successful.
