Mediabistro Announces New Speakers for Next Week’s Inside Bitcoins Conference in New York City

Mediabistro Inc. (Nasdaq:MBIS) today announced the addition of a fireside chat with Shakil Khan, Head of Special Projects for Spotify and Founder of CoinDesk, at next week’s Inside Bitcoinsevent on July 30 in New York City.

Khan will discuss the future of online transactions and analyze the trends, changes, technologies, companies, and key thinkers in the Bitcoin world.

Patrick Griffin, Head of Business Development for OpenCoin, an organization that develops and promotes the Ripple network protocol and payment system, has also been added to the agenda. Griffin will join the event’s Legal and Regulatory Issues Facing Virtual Currency Businesses panel.

Trevor Timm, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Freedom of the Press Foundation, will explore how peer-to-peer currencies like Bitcoin can help journalists, publishers, whistleblowers and politically disfavored groups resist or circumvent authoritarian measures. Given the recent controversy surrounding the National Security Agency (NSA) and Edward Snowden, this session is sure to be controversial and thought provoking.
