Description

Global interest in Bitcoin is exploding as individuals and investors want to learn more. At the same time, there is a lot of confusion on what Bitcoin is - while structured learning opportunities are limited. Bitcoin has a steep learning curve for beginners - it’s hard to know where to start.

Our vision is to provide a professional course that informs new people who want to learn more. We are are not a financial institution - our course is designed to help you increase your knowledge around Bitcoin and cryptocurrency so you can make an informed decision on whether you should get involved.

If you wish to buy Bitcoin, we can help you set-up your first Bitcoin wallet and you can purchase Bitcoin on the night.

In March this year, for the first time, 1 Bitcoin surpassed the value of one ounce of gold. In fact, Bitcoin has increased in value by over 300% in 2017 making it one of the best performing assets on the planet. Bitcoin is volatile, it’s risky, it could crash to zero – and yet since its inception in 2009 – it's value has increased to the point that one Bitcoin is now worth approx US$4000. To put that in perspective, a US$100 investment in Bitcoin in 2010 would be worth around US$70 million today.

Here's another way of looking at it - on October 1 , 2016 1 Bitcoin was valued at US$613.93. On October 1, 2017, 1 Bitcoin was valued at US$4,353.00. That's an increase of 609.03% in 365 days. Can we expect to see this growth continue? Nobody knows. However - despite explosive growth in 2017 - it is estimated that less that 0.5% of all people on earth currently own any Bitcoin. If this growth continues and demand rises - interest in Bitcoin will increase as well.

There is no guarantee that Bitcoin will continue to go up in value – but we are excited about the potential of Bitcoin and Blockchain tech and want to share our knowledge with interested parties so you can make informed decisions suited to your personal circumstances. Now is the right time to educate yourself – we’re here to help!
