Please note: proof of vaccination status will be required for all in-person attendees.

Marc Grens (Co-Founder & President, DigitalMint) and Mike Boyer (
Senior Director, Huron Consulting Group) will do a fireside chat where they discuss their perspectives on a number of topics including:

  • Risks associated with cryptocurrency.
  • Different types of fraud scams that the vulnerable population is exposed to with cryptocurrency.
  • Macroeconomics and cryptocurrency: the case for the value of bitcoin (and other major utility cryptocurrencies) to continue to skyrocket.
  • Reasons why hackers use cryptocurrency for cybersecurity attacks and ransomware.
If you have additional topics or questions you would like discussed, please email them to admin@sfnetmidwest.com.
