Crypto 101 – Dr. Prash at Real Big Things #23

Doctor Prash returned to the Real Big Things stage to deliver a philosophical 101 on cryptocurrency. Bitcoin and Blockchain are terms being bandied around constantly but are possibly not fully understood by many so Prash walked the audience through crypto’s origins and the potential applications the technology might have in other areas of society.

10 Minutes is not enough to explain these complex concepts, but here is a break down of Crypto 101

Introduction

2008 was a disastrous year for financial markets around the world. The global financial crisis saw the Dow Jones fall more than 50% (in a matter of months?) while millions lost their homes and life savings.

It was against this backdrop of dissatisfaction with the financial services industry, that the Cryptocurrency industry was born. In October 2008, the mysterious ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ published a whitepaper to an open tech mailing list entitled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System. This was the first the world had ever heard of bitcoin.

1. Nakamoto’s Whitepaper – Blockchain Technology and Distributed Ledgers

2. Decentralization

3. Tokenisation and Smart Contracts

Blockchain movement, of which Cryptocurrencies are the most visible manifestation of, is powered by technology and philosophy in equal measure packaged into an inseparable entity and that is poetry.

Dr. Prash is the CEO at Caleb and Brown is available to guide new and seasoned investors.
