What is Bitcoin?  Is it a new currency, store of value, or is it more than this entirely?

There hasn’t been a word in recent times that has the ability to elicit such a diverse range of responses and thoughts, why? We will explore some of the features and technologies driving this phenomenon using modern use cases. Through these, we will be able to have both a better understanding and see how you too can take hold onto the most interesting ride in decades. Please join us for a discussion as we take the plunge into the world of Bitcoin.
