About this event

From mysterious origins with enigmatic creator Satoshi Nakomoto, to becoming the #1 Google search of 2017, Bitcoin, and now the entire crypto industry, is taking the world by storm.

The digital revolution of the late 20th Century brought an entirely new layer of transparency and connectedness to the world, putting more power back into the hands of the individual. In 2018, cryptocurrencies, powered by blockchain technology, are the next evolution of the digital world.

Designed for the curious beginner, this comprehensive workshop dissects the key components of the crypto revolution sweeping the globe, including:

  • the origins of cryptocurrency,
  • blockchain technology and how it works,
  • and what it means for our world.

You will walk away with an understanding of the world’s two largest cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, with a solid grasp on not only the technical implications, but also the social, economic and political impact cryptocurrencies are beginning to have on today’s global society.
