Bitcoin is the first decentralized electronic cash payment network that enables value to be transferred peer-to-peer. Unlike traditional payment networks, Bitcoin bypasses the need for a centralized body of control, such as a government or a central bank.
Instead, activities and balances are stored on a public, shared ledger called the blockchain, which is verified by thousands of computers (called nodes) maintaining the network across the globe. Transactions are made with no middlemen so anyone with access to the Internet can transfer money to anybody anywhere in the world.
The cryptoassets industry is now increasingly being eyed by individual and institutional investors looking to integrate blockchain technologies into their business model.
If you want to explore this exciting and innovative field, joins us next Thursday at the Coinhouse for a 30 min introduction to Crypto & Blockchain technologies, followed by Q&A part.
