What is Cryptocurrency? What is Blockchain Technology? Why Do You Need It?

cryptocurrency + blockchain technology

When I posted last Christmas that I went to a cash-in center for Bitcoin in Metro Manila, I got a lot of private messages, emails and comments about it. Almost all of them ask about how Bitcoin works, how to earn money from it, where to buy and how to trade cryptocurrency.

Honestly, I am not an expert on this. All I know is that if you were one of those who have invested 0n this when it started underground in 2013 and cashed-in last year, you are one of the lucky ones who have earned millions from it. However, if you are just starting, you may have a lot of research to do . There is more than just Bitcoin.

Blockchain is part of this new wave of financial technology that promises transparency more than any other online systems present. They said this blockchain can go around bureaucracy in the system and fund transfers will be easier than ever . The trendiest fintech startups in town are banking on building their products around blockchain.

Personally, I need to understand more about this system. I have a lot of question in mind about the practicality of the Blockchain technology.

If you are like me who wants to learn more about it, there’s a Blockchain Applications and Economics Forum happening on May 28-30, 2018 at SMX Aura Convention Center in BGC, Taguig City. Fee to join this 3-day conference is $500.

Blockchain Applications and Economics Forum 2018 is centered on connecting corporations to blockchain technology and is expected to be attended by 400+ blockchain and non-blockchain practitioners over Southeast Asia.
