Bitcoin Masterclass

Innopay is happy to announce the second edition of the Bitcoin masterclass that will be held on January 15 in Amsterdam.

If you're interested in gaining better insights into how Bitcoin works, how it can contribute to your business and how it will be affected in the future, this one day training aims to give you the basis to fully understand Bitcoin. The masterclass has limited available seats, so make sure you book well in advance.

Hosting this training will be Jacob Boersma. Jacob is one of the thought leaders on Bitcoin in the Netherlands, also appearing on national television during the recent Bitcoin value rally. Jacob, expert in the fields of IT security and of the payments business, will guide the conversation between these two important aspects that represent the foundations of the Bitcoin revolution. 

Bitcoin is all the buzz lately. The virtual currency is riding a roller coaster of speculation, rising from 200 to 600 Euros in matter of weeks, and it's still rising.

Yet despite all the sound and fury surrounding this made-up money, most people have a hard time understanding exactly what bitcoins are--and how they work. This is troubling, especially if you're thinking of investing your own time and money in the Bitcoin phenomenon.
