Nerds with Beer: Cryptocurrency

Event Type: Computers and Technology
Date: 6/5/2018
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Part philosophy, part tech talk, this monthly meet-up for 20- and 30-somethings is loosely centered on tech and its role in our lives. We promise interesting conversation and excellent company.

This month we'll dive into cryptocurrency. When Bitcoin was created in 2009 by the so-called Satoshi Nakamoto, the currency was not even worth a penny. Now, the cost of Bitcoin has skyrocketed to $8,000 per unit and the energy usage of the network is higher than the Republic of Ireland's. What makes this form of currency so valuable and untouchable by government regulation? How do we prevent this network from burning obscene amounts of energy?
