In “Investing in Education Instead of Speculation,” Andreas explains how education and training in the Bitcoin and open blockchain space can enrich your life in a sustainable way. Unlike speculating on a basket of crypto-assets and tokens, investing in skills is permanent, transferable across chains, and empowering.
This talk took place on June 20th 2016 at the Blockchain Training Conference (in collaboration with the CryptoCurrency Certification Consortium) within the MaRS Discovery District of Toronto, Canada.
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.
