Episode 1: Introduction to Bitcoin
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.
In “Introduction to Bitcoin,” Andreas delivers an entry-level talk about how he discovered Bitcoin (twice) in 2011; the second time around, being consumed by a desire to learn more about this new form of network-centric currency and why it was so revolutionary not only in the field of distributed systems, but also in the evolution of money. He explores various topics in economics, psychology, technology, and game theory with current events, personal anecdote, and historical precedent that will be explored further in future episodes.
This talk took place on September 16th 2016, at Singularity University’s Innovation Partnership Program (IPP) conference in California. It is currently his most popular talk on YouTube.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
