Business of Software Conference accepts BitCoin & awards CPD Points

Of course we don’t. Both are ridiculous concepts. It is 1st April though.

One is a ridiculous concept that encourages the wrong sort of people to participate in something in the hope of some sort of intangible gain, the other is either:

  • An emerging virtual currency that allegedly offers early participants an advantage over latecomers or;
  • An shady ‘virtual currency’ that allegedly offers participants a career advantage over others

Either way, don’t come to BoS US or BoS Europe if that might stop you coming.

  • If you would come if only you could pay in BitCoin, think about paying with a credit card. It offers all sorts of insurance for your money. BitCoin, not so much, yet. It might in the future but not now.
  • If you would come if only we offered CPD points, remember CPD is a big fat scam for big fat conferences and trainers that pay through the nose to be ‘accredited’to ‘further’ your career. It has as much currency for employers as  Chartered Institute of Marketing Certificates. If you are good, you just don’t need to hide behind them.
