Event Details

Bitcoin Digital Currency for Beginners

 

Bitcoin is a peer to peer payment system which allows people to send money directly to each other without borders and without any intermediaries such as banks. During this session we will explain the basics of the digital currency revolution, explain how it works, explain the cryptography behind it, and help the students to get started with bitcoin on their laptops and mobile phones.

Please bring your own device with Internet connection (eduroam will be available).

Important Information for this session - BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

It would be helpful if people could bring a laptop or tablet so they can take part.
