April Meetup - Bitcoin, the digital crypto-currency

Date: Tuesday 16 April 2013 (3rd Tues every month)

Time: 18:00 - 20:30

Title: Bitcoin, the digital crypto-currency

Abstract: This talk will be about Bitcoin, the digital crypto-currency. Leo will cover the specifics of how it works, why it has utility, what you can do with it, and try to answer any technical and other questions.

Speaker: Leo Treasure has spent several years learning about bitcoins and how they work.  A university colleague and close friend encapsulated his transition from higher education to the land of bitcoin by asserting: "So what you're saying is you've dropped out of Tafe to mine bitcoins!"

Starting out with two top of the line graphics cards in mid-2011 at the peak of the bubble that saw the price topple from a high of[masked] to a low of[masked] (4 months later), he set up a mining rig and got to work.

Leo is currently studying Communications & Media.
