The End of Money as we know it: How Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Digital Money disrupt our financial system?

This week I had been invited hold a keynote speech about the revolution Bitcoin started in the financial world. The topic of my speech was:

The End of Money as we know it:
How Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Digital Money disrupt our financial system?

Bitcoin is to money, as the internet was to information.
Smart entrepreneurs and early stage investors have recognized the tremendous power the concept of digital currency, especially Bitcoin, has brought to light. Hundreds of StartUps like Xapo, Circle, BitStamp are developing a new industry with the monetary support of some of the most acclaimed venture investors worldwide.

The trend of Cryptocurrencies is raising many new questions. How will the future of money look like? Will we have one global currency? Will bitcoin be the end of paper money? Who will be the key players in the digital currency industry?
