Bitcoin and Crypto Currency

Shamoon Siddiqui, Founder of Crypto Street

Shamoon Siddiqui is an NJIT alumnus and a serial entrepreneur with several companies successfully launched in various industries. While at NJIT, he formed the DARPA Grand Challenge team to compete in the then highly publicized autonomous vehicle desert race. He holds a BS and MS in Computer Engineering from NJIT and an MBA from Rutgers University. His latest company is called Crypto Street and is a financial exchange where various crypto currencies can be bought and sold. An expert on Bitcoin, Shamoon formed the first Bitcoin Meetup group in early April 2012. Since then, he has become an expert on crypto currencies, not only from a deep technical but also from an economic perspective.

In his colloquium, Shamoon will give an introduction to Bitcoin from an historic stance. He will delve into some of the technical details underlying this distributed cashless currency and shed light on some of the uses of Bitcoin. In his talk he will also explore other crypto currencies (Litecoin, Feathercoin, etc.) and how they are similar and they also differ from Bitcoin.
