Blockchain Meetup – Wgtn

11 July, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Beginners guide to wallets, buying bitcoin/ether and trading tokens

Over the last 12 months a huge and exciting market has emerged in trading cryptocurrencies and tokens (for example in the last 6 months Ether has risen in value by almost 3000% and numerous ICO’s have gone live). Come and find out the basics of how to get involved in this sometimes highly lucrative and risky world. Some of the questions we’ll cover include:

  • What is a wallet and how do I install one?
  • Which are the best wallets?
  • Security best practice (how to not get your coins stolen/lost)
  • How to buy/trade Bitcoin/Ether from NZ?
  • What is an ICO and how to buy ICO tokens?

What are the tax implications of trading crypto currencies/assets and is this all legal?
Presentation/discussion will be led by Mark Pascall (Founder 3months.com/BlockchainLabs.NZ) and Stephen Nicholas (Deloitte).
