A Bit About Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrency


One night only! You’ve heard about Bitcoin, and it piqued your curiosity. This class is for you. You’ll be able to answer deceptively tricky questions like, “What is money?” (We think we know, until we don’t!) Then we’ll go from there and delve into even trickier questions: What is Bitcoin, then? Is it money? Is it “real”? How does Bitcoin work? What’s a blockchain? What’s with the “crypto” in cryptocurrency? How do people use Bitcoin?

This class explores Altcoin, Bitcoin, and blockchain technology and provides a basic overview of cryptocurrency and how it works.
