Feedback & Falafel: Reinventing Finance through Bitcoin

Feedback & Falafel: Reinventing Finance through Bitcoin

The Impact Hub community harbours an astonishing treasure of knowledge and skills. On Tuesdays, we invite Impact Hub members as well as people outside our community to offer a glimpse into their world. 

Hubber Jerome Rousselot is the Head of Integration at Mycelium, a startup that has created a Wallet to send and receive Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a technology to transfer money around the world instantaneously and transparently while respecting privacy. To make the Wallet usable for non-technical audiences, Mycelium raised USD 2.3 million in crowdsale within 3 weeks alone. This suggests there is demand for a new financial system that is fairer and disrupts current inequities in many spheres: international money transfers, stock exchanges, insurance, music rights, diamonds, drugs, international aid.

Join Jerome to dive into the following questions: What’s wrong with the current financial system? What is Bitcoin? Why do we need it? Who is using it? How can you use it? And learn how to use the Mycelium App!

Order your falafel wrap (£3.50) at 12 noon, the event starts at 1pm.
