The reality of blockchain and the explanation you’ve been looking for | Mason Manns | TEDxBGSU

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency have gone from novelty to serious discussion in less than 15 years since Bitcoin was first mined in early 2009. Despite a meteoric rise in popularity over that time span, the average person is typically either poorly educated or extremely misinformed regarding what many consider the technology of tomorrow. So, what is all of this and how does any of it work? I’m an aviation student and part time content creator with a passion for spreading financial literacy. In my free time I enjoy learning about developing financial technologies and creating content geared towards educating others. Outside of college and content creation I’m a part time server at a local restaurant and enjoy working out, reading, and continuing to challenge myself every day. Life is what you make of it and my biggest goal is to be better than I was yesterday.
