Keynote: Bitcoin Panel

Great job answering questions and articulating what BitCoin is. Interesting discussion, but like any new technology BitCoin sounds risky, volatile and unpredictable. I'm not convinced it is viable but was impressed by your passion.

Glad to see at least an introductory talk about Bitcoin. The more exposure the better. HOWEVER, I need to correct one statement, "our" government doesn't print its own money, the Federal Reserve does and they are a private corporation, therefore they are not subject to regulation and audits. Which is the reason we need a public ledger for our money.

Great talk about what the future of bitcoin holds for secure methods of exchange. I look forward to this type of talk happening at future Zendcons. All of the speakers were very articulate and proved to be extremely knowledgable on the topic.

Zero interest in this topic

I was surprised to see a keynote on Bitcoin on the schedule of a PHP conference, but IMO it was a fantastic addition. As developers we often get caught up in what we use day-to-day and don't take time to explore what's happening outside our PHP bubble. I really enjoyed the discussion around Bitcoin, but IMO the real value to be taken from the panel is an appreciation for how revolutionary the underlying tech - the blockchain - really is. Bitcoin is currently getting all the attention, but I would have liked to see more than just a glossing over of those other non-currency services built on the blockchain.
