Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
By Ken Gardner

Description: In this presentation, I'll be talking about the invention of blockchain, what it is, what its used for, and how it is being applied by cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Etherium.

The presentation will focus on the technology behind blockchain, the problems it is trying to solve, and some problems it has created. We'll be talking about some of the fundamental ideas used by blockchain applications such as mining, wallets, and coins / tokens.

We'll also be talking about some of the social and economic aspects of the technology. The subject will be presented in an introductory manner.

The Club's General Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at Faith United Church, 1778 Nash Road in Courtice, 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
