DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (OTC: MGTI) has announced that John McAfee, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, will be a featured speaker at The North American Bitcoin Conference January 17-18, 2017. The event is the longest running and most highly attended finance conference for the bitcoin, finance, and cryptocurrency industries. Mr. McAfee is scheduled to begin his presentation at 10:40 AM EST on Wednesday, January 18th. In addition to Mr. McAfee's participation, MGT is a supporting sponsor for this exciting and informative gathering.
Held at The James L. Knight Centre in downtown Miami, the two-day event will focus on a wide array of topics, such as Blockchain, Bitcoin, investing, regulation, the Internet of Things, hacking, and more. Top thought-leaders and innovators in the bitcoin and disruptive technology ecosystem will present alongside Mr. McAfee. Two of MGT's Bitcoin Advisory Board members will also speak: Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, and Bruce Fenton, Managing Director at Atlantic Financial.
Mr. McAfee commented, "The recent appreciation of Bitcoin supports my belief that Bitcoin is now being utilized as a viable alternative to fiat currencies. Most recently, we have seen India and Venezuela remove their larger notes from circulation and Bitcoin offers citizens liberty from these State-controlled monetary policies. Moreover, the Blockchain will be central to nearly every aspect of future cybersecurity solutions, including wire transfers, authentication, and secure voting systems. It will become the cornerstone of virtually all digital transactions."
Supporting this reasoning, I'm very excited to announce that MGT is exploring several opportunities, any of which if successful, would accomplish our previously stated goal of MGT becoming the largest Bitcoin mining facility operator in the western hemisphere," concluded Mr. McAfee.
