Bitcoin 101: The Basics

707 SW Washington St, 11th Floor
Portland, OR 97205, us (map)



• What we'll do The price of Bitcoin has sky-rocketed this year as global adoption continues to trend upward, as more governments recognize it as currency, and as impoverished populations seek refuge in an uncensorable, free-to-access, and relatively stable global payment network. Yet, Bitcoin's biggest strength is also its biggest weakness: there is no centralized authority in Bitcoin. While this fact is majorly (r)evolutionary, it also means that it can be hard to know where to find reliable information. Join us for this introductory workshop to learn the basics:

  • What is Bitcoin?
  • What makes Bitcoin unique?
  • How to choose the best wallet for you
  • How to buy your first bits of a bitcoin
  • Resources and tools for expanding your knowledge
  • Q & A
