Consumers’ Research hosted “Bretton Woods 2015” from July 13, 2015 – July 15, 2015, an “under the radar” workshop at Omni Mount Washington Resort held in the spirit of the original Bretton Woods Conference. The purpose of the workshop was to gather a small group of experts from various backgrounds to drive consensus on the future of the perception, regulation, and adoption of blockchain technologies.

Workshop attendees included leaders of the Bitcoin community as well as several stakeholders of various relevant backgrounds not typically associated with Bitcoin. The workshop’s output is a white paper (see below) addressing the challenges of this new technology – how it is defined (in the media, by consumers, by the private sector, by policy makers), how it and its many use cases are regulated, and how it may shape consumer protection.
