Cryptocurrencies made big waves in 2017. Bitcoin's value rose more than 1000 per cent and other digital currencies saw even bigger gains. But is it just a bubble as critics say, or is there something revolutionary happening?

Find out if the future of money is digital and what you need to know if you’re thinking about investing.

After his presentation, Clark will be joined by CBC journalist Sudha Krishnan for a lively discussion and Q&A. 

A reception will follow outside The Faculty of Fine Arts Gallery (FOFA).
