Prior Experience

There is no expectation of prior experience. But there is a lot you can do before camp to root it contextually.

  • You do NOT need to know how to code.

  • You will be expected to work through Blockchain/Cryptocurrency math.

  • You will be immersed in the local Blockchain community for ~9hrs each day of camp.

BitCamp is meant to be an intense, immersive experience. BitCamp is great for anyone looking to learn more about the Blockchain revolution; it is ideal for people who can handle drinking from a firehose and who see themselves becoming leaders in the Blockchain space.

After Camp

BitCamp is not about having Bitcoin/Blockchain/Cryptocurrency explained to you. It’s about achieving the level of understanding for you to become the one doing the explaining. The idea is to empower you to empower others. After BitCamp you will be able to convey the fundamentals, orient yourself & others, and operate in the space.

In short, our goal is to take you from Zero to Blockchain Hero in 3 Days.
