Winklevoss’ Bitcoin Presentation

September 30, 2014 12:48 UTC

Too many people are still not aware of what Bitcoin is. Other than being a great source for cryptocurrency news, CCN also tries to educate people. It’s important that the world learns about Bitcoin and its strengths and weaknesses. Many Bitcoin enthusiasts share this view. Proof of that is a presentation given by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss on September 17, 2013 in New York City.

The presentation was given at the Value Investor’s Congress. The Winklevoss twins knew what kind of crowd they were facing.

The Powerful Implications of the Bitcoin Protocol

“The congress attracts some of the most skilled and experienced public market investors in the world. They are a skeptical bunch by training, and we were fully expecting a tough crowd with hard-hitting questions. Our goal was to educate these investors on the origins of Bitcoin, the powerful implications of the protocol and its investment use-case as a long-term store of value.”

A few days ago, this presentation was posted on Slideshare. While many people may have seen this already, it still is a great tool that can be used to educate people into Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. All the major aspects are being talked about. They start out with the history of it all, going from Nakamoto to Bitcoin’s genesis block. After that, the usage of Bitcoin and its benefits over other assets (gold and fiat) are discussed.

This presentation is still a great read for everyone. Seasoned Bitcoin enthusiasts will rediscover all the good things that got them into Bitcoin while new people will learn everything they need to start their journey into the wonderful land of cryptocurrencies. We encourage everyone to share this presentation with as many people as possible, preferably those who never heard of Bitcoin. The time to convince them is now!

I love cryptocurrencies, mostly because it gives us a chance to take back our freedom. If we do this right, there are exciting times ahead!
