The Practical Side of Bitcoin


It’s in the news all the time, and you just don’’t know what to think about it. But, Bitcoin is here to stay. It has even been sold by the FBI from confiscated goods. Yes, it’s a “commodity” but we are using it to barter for plane tickets, TV’s, laptops and cell phones. This talk will discuss how to obtain Bitcoins, how they can be used as a payment system, and how to use it day to day.

This is an introduction to Bitcoin for those that have no background in digital currency. The discussion will show how easy it is to send and receive bit coins, as well as how it stands up to traditional payment processes. Leave this discussion with a digital wallet on your phone!
