Welcome to this year's sixth Krakow Bitcoin Meetup on Thursday August 30th!

This time, we have the honor of welcoming the charismatic and engaging Giacomo Zucco!

At the meetup, Giacomo will go through the 101 of Bitcoin. What is it? How does it work? Why is it interesting? And most importantly: Why is it such a big deal when it comes to politics?

After the presentation, we will have a Q&A, where everyone attending will get the opportunity to directly ask questions to one of the most insightful minds in the world of Bitcoin.

You can join the event without any previous knowledge about Bitcoin. Do not miss this brilliant chance to get educated on one of the most revolutionary technologies of our time!

Giacomo Zucco is the founder of BHB Network and BlockchainLab Switzerland, doing Bitcoin consulting for institutional players such as banks. Giacomo describes himself as a Bitcoin maximalist, (un)blockchain consultant, theoretical physicist (in theory), paleo-libertarian activist (now retired) and a pseudo-nerd.

You may have seen some of his regular appearances on the Bitcoin Morning Brief with Tone Vays, providing insightful comments about Bitcoin itself and its interplay with the global economic context. The eloquent Italian has spoken at numerous Bitcoin conferences over the years and featured on multiple national live debates pertaining to Italy's financial matters and economic policies.

Strongly opposing the popular view that blockchain technology could and/or should be integrated into all of our systems, he regularly argues why it is Bitcoin, and Bitcoin only, that has utility as a cryptocurrency.
