Anonymously?  Are you being humble or was it really someone else anonymous? 

How much does it cost to "sponsor" which I'm assuming you mean pay to have bitcoin logo on that website?

Good stuff!

Coinbase for selling BTCs
Fold for spending BTCs
PM me with any questions on these sites/apps!  Happy to help!


or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.

They would politely promise to show up at the conference...then 'chargeback' on their promise to attend.

Jered v Ben?
Someone should quickly set-up statement on betsofbitco.in

As ambassadors of Bitcoin, this is how the conversation should go between them:

Jared: Hey, Ben! Good luck with your talk.
Ben: You too, bud.

Feel free to memorize and use the dialog at the conference.

Awww shucks, thank you Smiley

I wish I could see the look on Ben Milne's face when he visits that page and discovers that not only is Jered Kenna speaking, but Bitcoin itself is a sponsor of the event! Hahahaha. Bitcoin is like the evil spirit from which Ben cannot escape. Bitcoin isn't even a company or organization, and yet its spirit has found a way to manifest itself in event sponsorship!!

Here's the thesis of their two speeches:

Ben: Hi, we made a cheaper paypal.

Jered: Hi, we're changing the game forever.

So is this just an opportunity for the speakers to pimp their companies, or is it an actual discussion of the future of money?

If it is like similar venues I would say 60%:40% pimp:analysis ratio.  Still pretty good
