Bitcoins. Mining. Cryptocurreny. Wallets. Asics and Gigahashes and Terrahashes. There is a whirlwind of buzzwords surrounding Bitcoins, but everything you need to manage or mine them is available for your Mac. Join in and you’ll learn what exactly a Bitcoin is, how to buy and sell on Bitcoin exchanges like MtGox and Bitstamp, how to store them safely and securely in a Bitcoin wallet, send them to anyone in the world, and purchase goods and services from a growing list of merchants. If you’re the type who prefers to make your own Bitcoins, you’ll learn how to mine, what kind of equipment you’ll need, and how to manage it on your Mac. For a bonus, Bryan will show you some of the Bitcoin-related apps for iPhone and iPad.
