Bitcoin. What is it? How does it Work? With “The Crypto Coach” Richard Messitt

Thursday 8th November

5.30pm – 7.30pm

Our speaker Richard Messitt has been explaining Bitcoin and Blockchain for over 6 years and has diligently refined his talks to enable complete newcomers to get a well-rounded understanding of this new phenomenon.

In this talk Richard will help us understand:

  • WHY Bitcoin was created
  • HOW it works
  • WHAT the implications are for the future.

Richard is an engaging and interactive speaker that draws on his 6 years of cryptocurrency knowledge to provide well structured and easy to understand explanations of Bitcoin. Using anecdotes, analogies and real-world examples Richard ignores the issue of ‘price’ and instead will take you on a journey toward understanding a technology that has been growing in relevance for ten years.
