Event description

Description

"What is bitcoin?" and "How do you buy bitcoin" were among the top 10 most googled questions of 2017. And if you know how to answer these questions, what about these questions that usually follows: "What are the differences between Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin?" "How do blockchains work?" "Am I supposed to invest in cryptocurrency or start using it as a form of digital currency?" "Why do friends in finance tell me that the cryptocurrency market will implode?"


Cryptocurrency has been dubbed as the money of the future, the greatest invention since the internet, and the most important invention in modern human history. Join HER NYC at The Assemblage, 114 E 25th St, New York, NY 10010, on Wednesday, January 17th at 6:30pm for a Cryptocurrency panel led exclusively by women exploring these claims and answering all the questions above and more.

As our fearless moderator, Vicki Rox (professional speaker, contributing writer at VICE) would say: "There's no reason why we woman should stay in the dark about the future and I'm committed to making this space as non intimidating and clear as possible." We are excited to have Vicki's expertise in leading the evening's discussion.

The event will be open exclusively to the HER NYC community and reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reimbursements for late cancellations are not guaranteed.
