Lecture: How To Protect Yourself from Hacking

Members of the public attended an open lecture at the Blockchain Institute of Technology (BIT) yesterday on the topic: Protecting Your Digital Assets. The presentation was arranged by Billy Leibundgut, the co-founder of the University of New Hampshire Cryptocurrency Club and the General Manager of the Bitcoin Shoppe in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He has helped hundreds, if not thousands of people level up their digital security through his work. Yesterday, he shared that knowledge with the Portsmouth Bitcoin Network, a Meetup.com group open to people of all ages and skill levels. Everyone, no matter how advanced, left with a deeper understanding of what vulnerabilities lurk behind our keyboards and mobile devices — and how we can better protect ourselves. The presentation is the second to took place in the Satoshi Nakamoto Lecture Hall. The first was a lesson by software developer Steven Zeiler on the topic: Spending Bitcoin on Amazon, Expedia, and CheapAir.

Last night’s event was catered by Fezziwig’s Food and Fountain, the number-one cryptocurrency-friendly restaurant in the Bridge District of Bitcoin Village. After the talk, some attendees stayed to chat in the Hal Finney Lounge. The next open lecture at the BIT is scheduled for Friday, April 6 at 7pm. The topic is Securing Cryptocurrency with Multi-signature Wallets. Steven Zeiler will present in the Satoshi Nakamoto Lecture Hall. Space is limited. Please RSVP here. Light refreshments will be catered by our friends at Fezziwig’s.

Bitcoin Meetup: BIT Lecture on Wallets, Digital Security

Billy Leibundgut, co-founder of the Cryptocurrency Club at the University of New Hampshire (“UNH Crypto“), presents a valuable primer on wallets and digital security in the form of an open lecture at the Blockchain Institute of Technology (BIT) on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 7pm EST. RSVP as “Going” on Meetup or Facebook.

This is the first meetup scheduled at the BIT, another crypto space in the internet-famous “Bitcoin Village” of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Until this Friday, Portsmouth’s meetups, like most others around the world, took place at restaurants — great places for large groups of strangers to gather and talk, but less-than-ideal for in-depth, hands-on learning. This meetup affords attendees an opportunity to go from “zero-to-one” with bitcoin: Get your first bitcoin wallet, load it with some coins, and lock it up securely. Even longtime bitcoin pros will learn something from the many crypto-advanced traders and programmers in attendance.
