Bitcoin is a peer to peer payment system which allows people to send money directly to each other without borders and without any intermediaries such as banks. During this session we will explain the basics of the digital currency revolution, explain how it works, explain the cryptography behind it, and help the students to get started with bitcoin on their laptops and mobile phones.
To participate fully in this session, please bring your own device (laptop, tablet or mobile phone) with Internet connection.
