“Digital Gold” Google Book Event w/ Nathaniel Popper

Coin Center and Google DC hosted a conversation with Nathaniel Popper of the New York Times. His new book, Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside History of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money, documents the early history of cryptocurrency and features many of the players who have been part of building it into a global phenomenon.

Popper was joined on stage by Carter Dougherty, a Bloomberg News reporter who has covered Bitcoin from the beginning. They discussed the rise of Bitcoin and how it first came to Washington.
