VISITING INFORMATION

The weekend workshop will take a historical look at the political / social relevance of Bitcoin ("Breaking the Taboo on Money") by looking at the history of technical and social inventions the came before it. I'll then futurecast what this could mean for the future of p2p finance (blockchains, new social architectures and peer owned platforms with a mix of synthetic finance, peer-owned-banks) and place Robin Hood Coop within this future ("Breaking the Taboo of Financial Markets").

It will include hands on activities on covering topics such as blockchains (actually running them and understanding them) as well as dissecting financial instruments - such as Robin Hood Cooperative has been doing.

NOTES:

- If you can’t afford the entry price, get in touch anyway and we can figure something out.
- All participants will be given some Bitcoin
- The workshop runs across two days. Both days will be complementary, but will also be standalone. there won’t be too much duplication for those who attend both, but you won’t be left behind if you only attend one.

Pre-reading / listening:  Listen to as much of this talk by Vinay Gupta as you can.
