Dinner Meeting with Speaker: Blockchain & Cryptocurrency - What Estate Planners Ought to Know
The Council's next dinner event takes us to the seacoast on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at the Atlantic Grill located at 5 Pioneer Road at the traffic circle in Rye, NH. The evening begins at 4:45 p.m. with a cocktail reception followed by dinner at 5:45 p.m.
We will welcome Bobby Henebry, CFA, Founder and CEO of Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Consulting for his presentation, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency - What Estate Planners Ought to Know. Bobby will discuss the basics of both cryptocurrencies and blockchain to help the audience understand the diversity of this emerging ecosystem. We will discuss the history of Bitcoin (the first crypto), how mining works and what purpose it serves, and the basics of blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT). With that common terminology covered, we will then talk about practical uses of this technology. We will go through examples of how investors might approach the crypto space, custodial solutions (and challenges) for crypto, basics of tax impact for crypto, and what is happening in the broad blockchain ecosystem. Ultimately, the aim of this presentation is to help estate planners and other financial service professionals approach their clients about this topic, while also considering how to account for crypto and blockchain investments in their affairs.
Bobby is an early adopter of mining cryptocurrencies and established an Ethereum mining operation in 2016. He consults with power companies and startups interested in learning about the space. In addition, he works with startups (mainly in applications of blockchain) to help them think about strategy, craft their message, and connect with potential investors. Previously, Mr. Henebry was a partner at SeaBridge Investment Advisors, a money manager advising high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and foundations. In his eleven years with the firm, he analyzed stocks for inclusion in global portfolios, advised clients on allocations, and monitored private equity and hedge fund positions for family office clients.
