Why Bitcoin may be more disruptive than the Internet.

Hashtag

So you've seen some tech people mention Bitcoin and maybe you've read a news article about it... But what is it? Why should you care? This session will try to explain why you'll tell your grandchildren you were alive when Bitcoin was created. Bitcoin is a virtual, decentralized currency, completely uncontrolled by any government. It's the programmable money of the future. I started getting into it in February when it was worth $17 per coin and now it's up around $130. Many believe it will go much higher. We'll talk about why. I'll also share some photos of a Bitcoin miner I melted. Sad story, that one. Come learn, heckle, and be inspired.
