The low down

Cost:  £5

Hosted by FindingX

This cryptocurrency masterclass is unlike any other. It will help provide an understanding of the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem. We will be teaching how to build a coin from scratch and go through the blend of financial, technical engineering and economics required to create a fully operational cryptocurrency.

This is an interactive masterclass, in a workshop style format, led by knowledge sharers who are on a mission to make understanding blockchain simple.

All cryptocurrencies are unique, but each shares a similar framework. The difference between those that succeed and those that fail is how the framework is approached.

This session will enable anyone to build a coin from start to finish and learn how to tinker with it after the event.
