Bitcoin 101: Getting Started

The price of Bitcoin has sky-rocketed this year as global adoption continues to trend upward, more governments recognize it as currency, and impoverished populations seek refuge in an uncensorable, free-to-access, and relatively stable global payment network. 

Yet, Bitcoin's biggest strength is also its biggest weakness: there is no authority in Bitcoin. While this fact is majorly (r)evolutionary, it also means that it's hard to know where to find reliable information. Join us for this introductory workshop to learn the basics: 

- What is Bitcoin? 
- What makes Bitcoin unique? 
- How to choose the best wallet for you
- How to buy your first bits of a bitcoin
- Resources and tools for expanding your knowledge
- Q & A

Anna has a degree in Global Economic Systems and International Business, and has been a student of decentralized systems, social movements, and cryptocurrencies for many years. She founded a Bitcoin consulting business 4 years ago, has written many helpful guides, and is currently writing a book about Bitcoin. (Note: She is not a financial adviser and will not be giving financial or investment advice.) 

Sliding scale: $5-15

Bitcoin encouraged; PayPal, Venmo, SquareCash, and cash accepted. No one turned away for lack of funds.
