Learn Liberty On Demand offers you a series of videos on new and exciting topics in the world of policy and ideas that you can watch any time, anywhere, on your schedule. Have you ever wondered about what exactly Bitcoin is and why it matters? Well, this is the place for you.
You may have heard a news report or two about Bitcoin. Your friends might have mentioned it in passing at the latest cocktail (read: frat) party, and you may even know someone who has invested in it. But what exactly is Bitcoin? And why is it important? In this program, you will learn the basics of Bitcoin and (for those who already fancy themselves Bitcoin experts) some of the more advanced questions surrounding this mysterious currency. Will Bitcoin be the death to national currencies as we know them? What gives Bitcoin its value? And why is the creator of Bitcoin hiding his (her? their?) identity? We might not be able to unmask the founder of Bitcoin, but you will definitely own the conversation at your next social gathering.
