About the event

Presentation Information:

The best way to learn bitcoin is to first understand the problem it wants to solve. Come learn how to explain bitcoin in 30 seconds and then ask your favorite questions. Isn’t bitcoin a scam? Won’t the government shut it down? Aren’t their 1000s of cryptocurrencies? What's the difference between all of these cryptocurrencies? Does bitcoin consume too much energy? How can bitcoin possibly have value?
