2009 saw the launch of the world’s first cryptocurrency: BitCoin. It is now worth ~$114 billion and cryptocurrencies combine further to $287 billion. Fortunes have been made, lost, and stolen through BitCoin. Criminals use it. Governments tax it … or switch to it.

Should you use it? Is it safe? Is it legal? Is it better?

Maren Peasley will give a short overview of BitCoin – what it is and how it works – and explore the use of cryptocurrencies. He will explain who is involved and how they relate to BitCoin and each other and discuss practical business implications of accepting cryptocurrencies.
