Inside Bitcoins Conference & Expo 2014 will take place on Dec. 12 and 13 at the KINTEX Convention Center located in Ilsan, Gyeonggi Province. Co-hosted by MecklerMedia and KINTEX, the event will also be held in the United States, Britain, France, and Israel each year, in nine countries in total.

Bitcoins are a virtual digital currency that is free from government control and is publicly verifiable. It can also be used anywhere in the world. These days, Apple, PayPal, Baidu, Foodler and many more are adopting the currency in spite of concerns over fluctuations in the value of the money out of government control and the long verification times on transactions.

At this year’s Inside Bitcoins Conference & Expo, more than 15 speakers are slated to cover a wide variety of topics in such fields as virtual currency and payment, online retail, fintech, security solutions, finance and investment consulting, online games, and future studies.

One of the speakers is Korea University computer science professor In Ho, who is going to look into specific application examples of the Internet of Things (IoT) and bitcoin payment systems. Hanyang University professor and InfraBasic CEO Kim Il-sun will make a presentation on how the bitcoin will shake the foundation of the economy as we know it and contribute to the formation of a new digital economy. Devign Lab CEO Cha Myung-hoon’s presentation topic will be bitcoin exchange security from the viewpoint of a hacker.

Foreign speakers include AlphaPoint Vice President Scott Bambacigno, Kapronasia founder Zennon Kapron, and BitMEX founder Arthur Hayes.
