No bank, No middle man, No debit cards, No nothing! Welcome to the intriguing world of Bitcoin, the virtual money market!
Bitcoin is the world’s first cryptocurrency and now there’s a way for you to become a part of it. It’s different than what you know and use every day. Before you start using Bitcoin, there are a few things that you need to know in order to use it securely and avoid common pitfalls. Birmingham’s leading Bitcoin show & conference returns to The Studio on Sunday 3rd November 2019 with a stellar line-up of international speakers, educational workshops, awesome exhibitors and of course great hospitality.
But first you might be wondering what Bitcoin is? I mean we’ve all heard of it but it does leave a question mark. Bitcoin is a digital currency, which is used to buy products and services just as you would with a debit or credit card, except it’s all virtual. I know, scary!
Bitcoin (BTC) is known as the first open-source, peer-to-peer, digital cryptocurrency that was developed and released by a group of unknown independent programmers named Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. Bitcoin pioneers wanted to put the seller in charge, cutting out the middle man and interest fees and make transactions transparent, all to give you more control over your money. They created a decentralised system, where you can control your funds and know what is going on every step of the way.
This attracted many individuals and groups who were uncomfortable with the control that banks or government institutions have over their money.
If this has tickled a few brain cells, why not come along and hear from the experts?
