Bitcoin Focus – Framing The Debate

blog_picAs before, the theme of the BitcoinFocus event was to remain accessible to all. A big thank you to the sponsors at @TechHub@coindesk and @diacle_ for allowing to keep these events free to attend and to keep the food and drink flowing. Also, a big thank you to Paul @bitcoinfocus for a fantastic organisation.
First up, we had Bitcoin Bootcamp, presented by Hakim Mamoni, the founder of Hakim presented a layman’s account of the inner workings of the Bitcoin protocol and also discussed some of the many possible features and use-cases that it has the capacity to support in the years ahead. The presentation was followed by Q&A.
Next we had Bitcoin Mining – Bedroom to a Bank Account, presented by @EdwardHarpham. Edd gave an overview to Bitcoin mining, what it is, and what it isn’t. He described some basic differences between the older ways of mining Bitcoin vs the new dedicated technology and how you can still profit from bedroom mining. There was even a guide on how to build your own miner and what sites you need to get started turning electricity into cash. The presentation was followed by Q&A.
The third presentation was Bitcoin in Context, a Brief Cultural History of Money. Presented by Lui Smyth, an Anthropology Researcher at UCL. Lui examined different ways of understanding money, drawing examples from history and anthropology. From gift economies through to gold, paper, plastic, and digital, he explored the relationship between money systems and political power. The presentation was followed by Q&A.
All three presentations will be published in the playlist below, I hope you enjoy.
