Bitcoin Basics w/ Ben Doernberg

WORKSHOP at 3pm on 27 Mar 2015
⌖ Butler Studio (208b)

Bitcoin and Dogecoin veteran Ben Doernberg will lead this entry-level workshop on the basics of bitcoin for writers, journalists, and the general public. After an overview of key concepts we'll go step-by-step through the process of installing a bitcoin wallet and receiving a payment, so please bring a laptop or smartphone! Next we'll cover best practices for buying, securing, and using bitcoin. The final portion of the workshop will be focused on journalism- and author-specific applications for bitcoin technology, including micropayments/tips/donations, paywalls and access controls, and more sophisticated use-cases on the horizon.

We have limited space for this workshop. Please RSVP here.
