What the H is Bitcoin?

  • NEX Atlanta 318 Cherokee Avenue Southeast #104 Atlanta, GA, 30312 United States (map)

You may enjoy this talk if:

You’ve heard people talking about “Bitcoin” or “Crypto-something” and you feel out of the loop, or you worry your questions are so basic you’ll sound dumb.

Wouldn’t it be more fun to be the person who can say something knowledgable about it and make everyone else feel secretly dumb? You could be that person!


You won’t enjoy this talk if:

You want the simple 3-step plan for getting rich with cryptocurrency.

You won't get investment advice here, except for this timeless gem: Don’t take investment advice from, basically, anyone...except, like, Warren Buffett, maybe.

And also, this: If somebody tells you they know the secret to getting rich, check and see if they’re Warren Buffett. If not, run away!


You may really enjoy this workshop if:

You don’t even really know who this Warren Buffett guy is. All this and more will be discussed!

This talk will be led by:

Josh Akeman, an econ major turned newspaper reporter turned data scientist, who's mildly obsessed with Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and the underlying blockchain technology that enables them. Josh is interested in technology, science, economic history, artificial intelligence, Norm Macdonald, the theory and history of money, and tuning out his girlfriend while watching YouTube videos about said topics. He resides in Atlanta with his girlfriend, and usually a cat.
