[VIDEO] Decrypting Bitcoin: Blockchain Technology Explained

Two of the co-hosts of Neocash Radio—JJ Epic and Randy Clemens—created this video to explain the benefits of using Bitcoin, as well as to provide an informative overview of how Bitcoin works under the hood to someone who may have never even heard of it.

If you’re new to cryptocurrencies: WELCOME! And if you’re an expert, we hope this intro video will be a valuable tool that you’re inspired to pass along to curious friends and family!

Through our new media studio—5th Quill Studios—we will be producing more in-depth videos to explain Ethereum, DASH, Steemit, and the Federal Reserve soon! (We’ll also be upgrading Neocash Radio to be a video podcast in the coming months!)

Bitcoin is so much more than just an electronic payment system…

Many call cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin “the future of money,” but a majority of people don’t really know much about them. What are cryptocurrencies? How do they work? How do you get them? Where can you use them? And what makes them safer, faster, and often cheaper to use than cash or credit?

We created this helpful video to answer these questions and more, walking you through an in-depth overview of this paradigm shift in money. You’ll see how Bitcoin is already benefitting millions of users across the globe, and you’ll learn how you can be one of them.

Join us as we decrypt Bitcoin, from its enigmatic beginnings in late 2008 to a look at its promising future. We’ll also explore the breakthrough technology underneath Bitcoin—”the blockchain”—and how it can change more than just our relationship with money; it can transform our societies, our governments, our businesses, and possibly our every interaction.

Darren to Present at Porcfest

Student's work.

An example of a student’s work: Pascal’s triangle

Darren is officially on the schedule of porcfest. There he will present about ending government induced math anxiety.  He will discuss his Mathematical Playgrounds and  arithmetic promotion he has been doing this year. Darren will discuss how geometry is an appropriate subject for a young learner, as well as a tool that helps boost students engagement with the material. This is a great opportunity to meet Darren.

This year Darren has been teaching young people aged 6 to 11 basics of arithmetic and discussing mundane to advanced geometric concepts. Every Tuesday Darren has met parents and engaged students with planned activities, games, and lectures intended to encourage mathematical thinking and discovery. Students help direct the actives. Lately students have been very interested in the Mandelbrot set. These more exotic topics keep up student excitement level while learning more mundane addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Darren intends to produce children with minds that do not fear mathematical topics, but rather are comfortable with them. This should avoid mathematical anxiety that is such a common result of public education.

In addition to presenting, Darren will provide some hands on activities for young people at porcfest. Anyone is encouraged to observe these activities which are intended for all young people.
