GoCoin Co-Founder & CEO to Keynote Virtual Currency Today Summit, April 29 in Boston

Both online and brick-and-mortar merchants are starting to accept bitcoin, giving consumers innovative payment options, while in turn benefiting from lower transaction fees.

Despite their market volatility, bitcoin and other virtual currencies are fast becoming a growing topic of conversation around the future of the payments ecosystem.

Both online and brick-and-mortar merchants are starting to accept bitcoin, giving consumers innovative payment options, while in turn benefiting from lower transaction fees. Wallet providers, bitcoin ATMs and debit cards are making it simpler for consumers to use bitcoin, and even financial institutions are showing interest in the blockchain technology that drives bitcoin.

Where is all this headed in 2015 and beyond? GoCoin Co-Founder and CEO Steve Beauregard will give his take on the current landscape for virtual currencies during his keynote presentation at the Virtual Currency Today Summit (VCTS), to be held April 29 at the Hilton Boston Back Bay.

He is a serial entrepreneur with a keen eye for emerging technologies, with the business instincts to develop businesses in the critical path of trends.
