2013 was a year of credit card security headaches of epic proportions, a Bitcoin boom, and the year that our phones were officially more accessible than our wallets. Who better to sort all that out and figure out what lies ahead than PayPal CEO David Marcus.

Since joining PayPal in 2011, Marcus has taken the payments company back to its world-changing roots. From snapping up startups to ripping out cubicles, he's made decisive changes to PayPal's culture. He's also weathered a storm of challenges from giants like Amazon and Google, and he's reckoning with the rise of Bitcoin and other unexpected forces in the business of moving money.

In an intimate interview with ReadWrite's editor-in-chief Owen Thomas, hear what he saw in 2013's epic holiday-shopping season, what he expects for the industry in 2014 – and what the future holds for all of us. The event is free and snacks and drinks will be served.
