This is an intensive, full-day course with 8 hours of jam packed knowledge to cover as many aspects of everything Bitcoin in plain English. We will be going at near breakneck speed, but slow down to make sure everyone understands the basic concepts. Bitcoin is complex, but once you get the basics, everything becomes so much easier to understand.This course is capped at 10 participants per session, to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate and leave enough time for questions.

Description
Throughout history, the primary method of communicating with someone over long distances was sending a letter. This could take days, weeks, even months, with no guarantee the letter would arrive at all. Even then it was only one-way communication, for a conversation to take place it would take longer still.
 
Email changed communications drastically. Messages were sent and received instantly, from anywhere in the world.
Before email, people didn’t even recognize the drawbacks of the old communications system. Once email became widely adopted, the drawbacks were instantly obvious, and we’ve never looked back.
 
The same is true of our current system of money today. Most people don’t stop to think about the drawbacks of our current monetary system, but a new technology is already beginning to change that. This new technology—called Bitcoin—is rapidly changing the way we view money.
 
This course will explain the broader view of what Bitcoin is, represents and, give you a layman’s view of how it works. We’ll go over how exactly you can obtain Bitcoin, store them safely, spend them, and even create them yourself. Bitcoin is quite a complicated subject with many facets, each a complex and deep topic on their own.
 
Our intent with this course is to give you everything, and all the knowledge you need to know in order to understand the system and get started with Bitcoin today!
