Event description
This is a UCL Minds Lunch Hour Lecture.

About this Event

We are continuing to work closely with Public Health England and the NHS to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and guests. To mitigate the impact of Covid-19, UCL cancels external events, will temporarily close the Bloomsbury Theatre, UCL Galleries, and Museums until 1 May. Please check event details for information.

About the lecture:

The aim of the lecture is to provide the general public with a better understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies. These terms have become very popular but do we know what do they mean?

This lecture will address the questions 'How does bitcoin work?', 'what is blockchain technology?', 'what are bitcoin?' and 'what is the economic inner nature of bitcoin - is it money or is it something else?' The lecture will also explore why bitcoin prices are so volatile and if bitcoin and blockchain are useful for the general public.

About the speaker:

Dr. Silvia Dal Bianco, Teaching Fellow at the Department of Economics at UCL.

Venue details and accessibility:

This building and lecture theatre is fully accessible and a step free route is available. Accessible toilets are located on the same floor as the lecture theatre.

If would like to speak to someone in relation to accessibility for this event, please email Emma Hart (emma.hart@ucl.ac.uk).
