Throughout July Panacea ran a series of Cryptocurrency Masterclasses to provide clarity on the complex world of cryptocurrency.

Over the course of these 5 webinars several questions were raised around the ethical and sustainable credentials of cryptocurrency given the amount of energy they require to "mine" and process transactions.
With that in mind we have once again teamed up with Bridget to bring you a follow-up session on “The cryptocurrency and blockchain dilemma for ESG investors”.

Bridget will be sitting down to look at Bitcoin and Ethereum in particular, and cover:
• The Environmental, Social and Governance concerns currently related to cryptocurrency.
• Whether cryptocurrencies are compatible with ESG.
• How to incorporate ESG factors when using cryptocurrency and what to look for.
• Significant innovation on greening the energy use that cryptocurrency requires.

With Bitcoin and Ethereum attempting to enter the mainstream markets and around 9.8 million Britons owning cryptocurrency as at February 2021, it is more important than ever to understand these technologies, their trade-offs and implications to committed ESG investors.
