CryptoMondays: Technical Evaluation On The Libra Blockchain

August 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Come learn about Bitcoin and Libra!

Eryka Gemma, (@bankoferyka) Bitcoin Center CEO, will give a 20 minute presentation on the basics of bitcoin and the onramps to owning a piece of this new asset class

Chris Raastad, Director of Engineering at Bolt Mobility, will give a 30 minute technical evaluation on the Libra Blockchain. Is Libra the next global currency or yet-another-dud-coin promising financial inclusion?

Libra made headlines more than any other coin in its early stages of development, backed by Facebook and a foundation comprised of household name payments, marketplaces, tech, telecom, blockchain, and charity organizations. Following the privacy scare of Cambridge Analytica, US congress immediately is on the heels of Facebook for building a “challenger to the US dollar.” What exactly is Facebook Libra? Technically what is the Libra Blockchain? Where’s the innovation? Should we be worried about the most knowledgable company in the world pushing into the realm of crypto-fiat currency? Can a coin backed by a diverse set of powerful organizations kickstart a more diverse and inclusive financial system that so many have failed to build before?

Come join us for a fun and educational time! (Food & Drinks provided)
