This Funzing Experience:

Bitcoin, Ethereum and the future of digital currency

You may have heard of Bitcoin and Ethereum last year due to spectacular price rises. But what has been happening since?

This talk answers the questions "What exactly is Bitcoin?", "How is Ethereum different?" and "What is a Blockchain?". I aim to demonstrate how the big price surges in 2017 are only the start of a much bigger trend and why now is the perfect time to prepare for the future.

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, SegWit2X, etc)

* About the world’s most expensive pizza!

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.

Venue: The Lighthouse, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm
