Bitcoin becomes ten years old in October and it’s hard to ignore the growing media hype. The problem is, most of the coverage focuses on price and speculation leaving most people at a loss as to why this technology was created in the first place, how it works and what its implications are.
If you’ve heard a lot about Bitcoin, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies but you haven’t found an explanation that really helps you get your head around it then this event is for you. Our speaker Richard Messitt has been explaining Bitcoin and Blockchain for over 6 years and has diligently refined his talks to enable complete newcomers to get a well-rounded understanding of this new phenomenon.
In this talk Richard will help us understand:
- WHY Bitcoin was created
- HOW it works
- WHAT the implications are for the future.
Richard is an engaging and interactive speaker that draws on his 6 years of cryptocurrency knowledge to provide well structured and easy to understand explanations of Bitcoin. Using anecdotes, analogies and real-world examples Richard ignores the issue of ‘price’ and instead will take you on a journey toward understanding a technology that has been growing in relevance for ten years.
The Circle are looking forward to this event as, like us, Richard particularly loves working with and supporting charities and social enterprises. Just recently Richard helped Dundee based charity DIAS - Dundee Independent Advocacy Support to become the first charity in Scotland to accept Bitcoin donations. At this event Richard will include discussing the specific opportunities Bitcoin represents for charities and social enterprises.
