Bitcoin, Ethereum and the future of digital currency
Bitcoin and Ethereum have been in the news a lot recently due to spectacular price rises.
But what exactly is Bitcoin? How is Ethereum different? Is it too late to get involved, or is this just the beginning?
In this talk I cover the essentials of cryptocurrencies, assuming no technical knowledge. At the end of the evening you’ll know:
* What Bitcoin is and how it works
* What a blockchain is and what it means for society
* The key differences between Bitcoin and Ethereum
* How to buy, sell and store digital currency
* What Smart Contracts are and how they will shape the future
* The latest cryptocurrency news (Bitcoin Cash, etc)

This talk will give you the knowledge, tools and confidence you need to participate in the biggest technological shift since the creation of the Internet.
