The Consumers’ Research Executive Director Joe Colangelo unveiled a new blockchain whitepaper titled “Bretton Woods 2015: the Promise of Bitcoin and the Blockchain” at the North American Bitcoin Conference held in Miami on Friday, January 22nd, 2016. The whitepaper provides a summary and analysis of the “Bretton Woods 2015” Bitcoin & Blockchain workshop/seminar that was attended by an A-list cast of blockchain influencers.

The original Bretton Woods summit was where over 700 delegates came together from 44 nations in 1944 following World War II to establish the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency and pegged the dollar’s value to gold. Held in the same Bretton Woods area of New Hampshire as the original conference, the name and location of the 2015 workshop is fitting as many believe Bitcoin could be a suitable “neutral” world reserve currency.
