This is an entry-level talk and an introduction to bitcoin by Andreas Antonopoulos, which was presented at the Singularity University’s Innovation Partnership Program (IPP) in 2016. Watch Andreas Antonopoulos present his lecture on what bitcoin is and what it is not, and how it can be harnessed for the development of mankind. According to Antonopoulus, “Bitcoin isn’t money. The blockchain isn’t a system of currency, it is a platform of trust. It’s not a company, it’s not a product, it’s not a service you sign up for. It’s not a currency – currency is just the first application. It’s the concept of decentralisation applied to the human communication of value”.
