If Satoshis, BTC, Blockchains & Mtgox sound like greek to you, you’re in the right place. Bitcoins (an example of a ‘cryptocurrency’) and their associated jargon have been all the rage in recent times. With soaring prices, multiple controversies & staggeringly complex mathematical underpinnings, Bitcoins pose a challenge to even the most well-informed among us.
While Bitcoin pundits hail it as a great investment opportunity, plenty of questions remain unanswered:
1. Are bitcoins real money?
2. Who owns/operates bitcoins?
3. How do I get bitcoins?
4. Are bitcoins a scam?
Join us this Friday to have these (and other) questions answered by our local Bitcoin guru, Faisal Khan.
