    Bitcoin 101: The Basics


    • 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

    Phoenyx Guyton has a degree in Global Economic Systems and International Business, and has been a student of decentralized systems, social movements, and cryptocurrencies for many years. She co-founded a Bitcoin consulting business 4 years ago, has written many helpful guides, and is currently writing a book about Bitcoin. (Note: She is not a financial adviser and will not be giving financial or investment advice.)

    Bitcoin encouraged; PayPal, Venmo, SquareCash, and cash accepted. No one turned away for lack of funds.

    Tickets are $5 at the door, no one is turned away.
