Bitcoin vs Big Brother

As technology increasingly affects our lives, what role does Bitcoin have in protecting our freedoms and privacy?

If you really care about human rights and how Bitcoin can prevent digital dictatorships, then this Bitcoin Sydney event for you. While in Sydney for the Singularity U Summit, Alex Gladstein has kindly offered to speak about Bitcoin vs Big Brother. With the kind of experience he has on a global level, this will be one of the most important events of the year.

Bitcoin Sydney presents Alex Gladstein, Chief Strategy Officer at the Human Rights Foundation. Alex has also served as Vice President of Strategy for the Oslo Freedom Forum since its inception in 2009. In his work Alex has connected hundreds of dissidents and civil society groups with business leaders, technologists, journalists, philanthropists, policymakers, and artists to promote free and open societies. Alex’s writing and views on human rights and technology have appeared in media outlets across the world including The Atlantic, BBC, CNN, Fast Company, The Guardian, Monocle, NowThis, NPR, Quartz, TIME, WIRED, The New Republic, and The Wall Street Journal. He has spoken at universities ranging from MIT to Stanford, presented at the European Parliament, and serves as a guest lecturer at Singularity University. He has also spoken at a range of blockchain events about why bitcoin matters for freedom.
