With Matt Damon and Larry David pitching cryptocurrencies during the Super Bowl and the LA Lakers arena selling its naming rights to crypto.com for $700 million, cryptocurrencies have definitely made the break into the US and international financial mainstream. A crypto [cryptocurrency] is a digital currency designed to work as a medium of exchange without reliance on centralized authority, such as a government or bank. Bitcoin, released as an open-source software in 2009, was the world’s first decentralized cryptocurrency, and the movement has grown immensely during the past 12 years. This month’s Ales & Ideas free lecture series provides community members of all trading levels a chance to learn about the historical development of digital cryptography in the 20th century and how these ideas were used to create cryptocurrencies and other blockchain applications. No financial advice will be provided; instead, let the eternally curious Rich Beveridge be your guide sharing all he has learned about this important development in the decentralization of financial currency. This lecture will include a slide presentation and opportunity for Q&A from the audience. All are welcome.
