Crypto currency, such as Bitcoin, is a certain mode of financial exchanges, which was lacking in an increasingly interconnected world of instant digital communications. Bitcoin protocol is built on open-source base (the code is available for viewing by anyone), protected by cryptography, and allows to conduct direct (p2p) operations through decentralized global network without any kind of intermediary (central counterparty). Indeed, it is a global, decentralized digital currency that exists beyond the control of any central governing body or organization. With the advent of Bitcoin technology we obtained two important components. First - this is a common database and a consensus on the network technology blokchain. The second - the money / financial product as information, torn apart from its carrier, Bitcoin crypto currency. Andrey will talk about the technology itself, and about the products that can be built on its basis.
During the event, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers, as well as to communicate and exchange contacts.
