This group was originally set up to give people the chance to get together regularly to talk Bitcoin and crypto-currencies in general. Over the past couple of years, the Cambrian explosion of blockchain innovation and the emergence of other technologies such as Ethereum has resulted in an evolution of the group.
We're still in the early days of what could prove to be one of the most important innovations since the early days of the internet. The group is open to everyone involved in the blockchain and Bitcoin communities and those that aren't. Experts, amateurs, miners, critics, whoever. If you're interested, you're welcome.
We're an inclusive bunch - come along and find out what's going on in the Scottish scene from those that are at the heart of the activity.
Bitcoin is a Black Swan
Host - Daniel Schnurr
Where: Napier University, Merchiston Campus, Lecture Theatre A17
The event is organized by the Blockchain & FinTech Society and free.
The probability that Bitcoin evolve as a Black Swan is non zero! This speakerevent will show you why.
Description of event:
What have the breakdown of the Sovietunion, the invention of penicillin and the spread of the internet in common? All of them are Black Swans, events which had a large impact but only a few have predicted them beforehand. This event aims to show that Bitcoin might also be a Black Swan.
The aim of this event is that people understand how Bitcoin fundamentally works and why it can be really successful. There will be a presentation about Bitcoin, afterwards you can ask all the questions which you ever had about Bitcoin in a Q&A session. After the Q&A session there will be some time for networking.
Bitcoin is a multidisciplinary invention, so the presentation will cover history of money, game theory, the core technologies of Bitcoin and monetary theory. Widespread myths about Bitcoin for example that Bitcoin mining is a waste of energy will be analyzed and unveiled. It will also be explained why Bitcoin probably will be more successful than all the altcoins.
