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.
