Intro to Crypto-assets
How many people do you know who truly understand Bitcoin? Do you recognize other cryptocurreny names such as Ethereum, Monero, Zcash, Siacoin? Have you heard about the massive gains in this space? Since January 1st 2017, the total worth of all cryptocurrencies combined was 15 billion USD. This week the the total market worth broke 100 billion. Sounds too good to be true? Well the numbers don't lie. Here's the link: http://coinmarketcap.com/charts/ If you'd like to know more, join us at Dctrl located on the corner of Pender and Richards. Under the hair salon. I'll be hosting a meetup to go over what crypto-assets are all about, how they work, and where I think this market may be heading. Ask any question you want and BYOB. But seriously, ask questions. They`re super appreciated! Highly suggested watching before going into this talk is this video "Banking on Bitcoin". It is available on Netflix and periodically uploaded to Youtube. This will get you up to speed about the start of crypto-currency and crypto-assets. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=banking+on+bitcoin Have you been to this Meetup before and would like to know more about other crypto-assets? Dctrl also hosts an "Intro to Bitcoin" every 3rd Tuesday of the month. Taylor Rhodes puts on a great talk to get some basics in where this space got started and where Bitcoin may be heading! https://www.meetup.com/dctrlvan/events Also hosted by Dctrl is "Intro to Ethereum". This is also put on monthy. Matt Lockyer explains some basic working ideas on smart contracts, decentralized network frameworks, and other amazing things Ethereum has to offer.
