Bitcoin Basics Course
Apr 22, 2018 at 18:00 — 19:30 (BST)
What IS Bitcoin??
In this course, endorsed by several industry and community participants, you'll learn all about what Bitcoin is, where it comes from and why it exists.
You'll learn how to use it, store it, secure it and learn about the various ways you can aqcuire it.
You'll also learn the fundamental basics of what altcoins are, what mining means in the crypto context and how to spot and avoid the many scams which seek to prey on peoples lack of knowledge.
At the end of the course there'll be a test and when completed your results will be recorded on the blockchain and certificates issued. You'll also learn, before taking the test, why having your results recorded on the blockchain is such a big deal!
I've been a part of the crypto community for over 5 years now and I've been doing my part for the industry, mainly in the field of education, for over three years now. I've run workshops at numerous industry events as well as private workshops around the country and I've also spoken at both the Brighton Digital Festival and more recently at the Institute of Directors in London.
I also founded and organise the monthly Bitcoin Portsmouth Social Meetup via the Meetup app, where we meet at The White Horse in Southsea each month, with new upcoming roundtable discussions coming this year.
Value added Extras
For everyone who attends the full course and completes the test at the end there'll be £5 of free cryptocurrency of their choice, meaning the course will have cost just £40 in total.
