World Crypto Con attracted attendees in droves to explore, engage in and experience the future of blockchain and cryptocurrency. The final day of the landmark conference formed the backdrop for a bet on the future of bitcoin. Civic.com co-founder and CEO Vinny Lingham threw down the gauntlet toward Standpoint Research founder and Director Ronnie Moas, asserting that the price of bitcoin will not hit $28,000 on a “reputable exchange” by year-end 2019. Moas jumped back with his bullish outlook on bitcoin. The proceeds of the bet, where the loser will fork out $20,000, will benefit FreeRoss.org, a charity designed to provide legal assistance to Ross Ulbricht in the hope of mitigating his life sentence for his role in anonymous marketplace Silk Road.
“World Crypto Con truly lived up to its billing as a show of ‘what’s to come’ in crypto and blockchain when Ronnie and Vinny took the stage,” co-founder of World Crypto Con Adam Williams stated in the news release. “We said it would be an experience-driven event, and that’s exactly what it became when our panelist put their money on the line to predict the peak of Bitcoin in 2019. We aim to have fun and make connections that ultimately lead to getting stuff done, and in this case, that’s going to be $20k to FreeRoss.org — we all feel really great about that!”
