- UNDERSTANDING BITCOIN AND BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY MADE EASY -

bitcone

The world is changing: unprecedented disruption looms on the horizon as the loci and tools of power shift away from their traditional epicentres. Bitcoin and Blockchain technology are ushering in a new era – an era of freedom. Freedom to make a choice (a far more logical choice) where one has full control and does not need to ask permission from anyone. To its creators, and to its rapidly growing ranks of disciples, Bitcoin is, and always has been, a mostly ideological undertaking, more philosophy than science. Bitcoin has the power to include those who have been purposefully excluded; to shine light in the darkest corners; and to liberate those who have been held in chains by old world financial systems.

COLIN

“I am passionate about sharing the knowledge, insights and philosophy behind Bitcoin. In my lessons, I will guide you through the history, foundations and basic functioning of the Bitcoin and Blockchain revolution. I specialize in helping people who are less familiar with computer science, internet technology or finance make sense of these innovations and transformations. I will show you how to partake in this new world, which vital steps you need to take in order to protect yourself and your assets and how to find, analyse and trade the cryptocurrencies of today and tomorrow. My aim: to empower and enlighten.”-Colin

MY LESSONS
“Every informed person needs to know about Bitcoin because it might be one of the world’s most important developments.”

Leon Luow, Nobel Peace prize nominee

In my sessions, I will tie together the many elements at play and the effects that this new way of storing value will have on business, governance and economics. I will challenge your conceptual understanding of trust, ownership and trade by comparing and contrasting the designs and architectures of old systems vs new systems. I will show that through the use of economic incentives and cryptography, we can create decentralized autonomous organizations. These new organizations will be run through rules encoded as computer programs instead of institutions and middlemen. Since Blockchain encompasses various fields such as computer science, cryptography, game theory and economics, it is easy to get lost in trying to make sense of it. If you need help with this and truly want to understand, then I invite you to join one of my lessons.

LESSON 1: OPEN YOUR MIND

This is the most important lesson I teach as it explains the roots and basic principles of Bitcoin, Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrencies. I will dive into the philosophy and ideology behind this movement and show you how this ‘Internet of Value’ will challenge and disrupt every industry.

LESSON 2: FIRST STEPS

This lesson will focus on security and buying your first bitcoin. I will help secure your computer, teach you security and back-up protocols and choose the right wallet(s). We will walk through all the necessary precautions that you need to take to protect and secure your assets.

LESSON 3: TRADING/EXCHANGE

This lesson is meant for those who wish to get into trading and investing in initial coin offerings (ICO’s). We will focus again on security and back-up protocols and procedures. Other topics during this lesson are exchanges, ICO research and sources of information that can be used to find interesting investments.

BOOK A SESSION

If you require more privacy, would like to organize this for a group of friends, your club or organization, then please get in touch for more information. Many times, my presentations are combined with a dinner and drinks in a private room of either a restaurant or hotel. These sessions lend themselves for more in-depth conversations on specific topics. One on one sessions are also available if you desire 100% attention and privacy.

Blockchain is everywhere and is sure to have a major impact on virtually every industry. Therefore, gaining a deeper understanding of how this technology works, the benefits, and the threats it could pose, can enable an organization to use this knowledge to its advantage. Being an early adaptor in this world is a very powerful competitive advantage. If you want to broaden the horizon and expand the knowledge of your company, department or team, use the below form.

Sharing my knowledge and experience with students and educational institutions is by far the greatest joy I get out of teaching. I believe fundamental knowledge about this technology to be essential in whatever career path you will decide on. These sessions can be organised together with schools and universities or through student organisations. If you are interested in organising a session, use the below form to get in touch.

Crypto Christmas

- The gift of value-

With
Crypto Christmas
you give
three gifts:

1.
Bitcoins
of € value X
that grow...

2.
To be
X% more
in the future

3.
And
the gift of
knowledge

Crypto christmas

This year instead of giving your employees a lame “Kerstpakket” for Christmas, which includes mostly items nobody really needs nor wants (such as a candle holder, canned olives and cheesy crackers *), surprise them with something truly valuable and original.

Crypto Christmas is the perfect gift for the employer who believes in the power of Bitcoin and Blockchain technology and wishes to share this. It combines the gift of knowledge with something that holds value today and is projected to increase in value the incoming years.

The gift of knowledge

The most valuable part of the gift is the lesson where I will explain the roots and basic principles of Bitcoin, Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrencies. I will dive into the philosophy and ideology behind this movement and show how this ‘Internet of Value’ will challenge and disrupt every industry. As part of the lesson I will guide your employees with safely setting set up their wallet.
