Karin Franklin, Program Coordinator, for March introduced Cameron Schrog.  Cameron's presentation today is on Bitcoin.  What is Bitcoin?  Bitcoin is a digital currency which operates free of any central control or the oversight of banks or governments.
 Instead, it relies on peer-to peer software and cryptography.  A public ledger records all bitcoin transactions and copies are held on servers around the world.  Cameron talked about the evolution of money from early times of bartering to current Bitcoin.  He talked about the six characteristics of money: Flexible, portable, divisible, difficult to counterfeit, limited supply and durable.  NFT (Non-Fungible Token) came on the scene in 2016-2017.  "Token" means that it can be transferred on a blockchain.   Essentially, NFT's are assets that carry a unique digital identity and can be traded and can be traded on a public blockchain. 
Currency is backed bank notes.  Internet money arrived on the scene in 2008-2009.   The advantage of Bitcoin is you can use it 24-7.
