Bitcoin and the Future History of Money

Bitcoin is the newest technology to serve the function of money. It is an invention for the digital age designed to solve a problem that has persisted for all of humanity’s existence: how to move economic value across time and space. Drawing upon research presented in Saifedean Ammous’ book, The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking, Ms. Daverington will discuss the history of money and share thoughts on Bitcoin from her perspective as an attorney and cryptoasset investment advisor. 

Educational presentation about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, the history of money and what may be in store for the world in the near future.

This will be a fun and non-technical talk designed to de-mystify cryptocurrency for those who need a basic intro, but also informative historical perspective on how "money" technologies have evolved over centuries. Also will cover some practical topics like where to go for info, how to purchase, how to securely hold digital assets, and how to avoid scams and bad actors. I could also offer a workshop with more hands-on demonstrations about creating exchange accounts, basics of trading, hardware wallet set up and usage for securely holding cryptocurrency. I am the founder of a digital asset investment firm and passionate about making sure that all people -regardless of wealth- may have the knowledge to take advantage of the early stages we are still in for the growth of these new assets.
