Join us for the next Longreads Club when we'll read about & briefly discuss a topic that this forum hasn't touched for at least five years—cryptocurrency. Given the nature of the discussion, the conversation will likely also expand to closely adjacent topics such as distributed ledger technology & sovereign digital currencies.


TOPIC: As El Salvador prepares to launch its “Bitcoin bond,” interviews with citizens, economists and technologists reveal cracks in the country's crypto revolution.

The Longreads Club is a bi-weekly program hosted by WorldOregon's Young Professionals group. We discuss a long-form article focused on a global topic each meeting. It's like a book club, but the reading material is much, much shorter. Rather than skim headlines, we dive deep and learn from each other to better understand world events. No membership or registration required - but it's nice to know how many are coming, so RSVPs are encouraged. Read the article and join our discussion!


Although this event is organized by the Young Professionals Steering Committee at WorldOregon, it’s open to everyone. You don't need to identify as "young" nor "professional" to attend. In fact, it’s better to have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives
