 GBAR’s International Connection explores the world of CRYPTOCURRENCY!

 Are you familiar with cryptocurrency? Do you know what Blockchain is? Did you know that cryptocurrency is becoming an alternative way to pay for regular things? Thousands of merchants worldwide accept bitcoin including Microsoft & Expedia. You can even buy a house with bitcoin - as long as the buyer and seller agree on exchanging bitcoin for the property!

Our speakers will cover the basic frameworks of what distributed ledger technology is – and how it works. They will present examples of how cryptocurrency can be used in a real estate transaction and will highlight some of the concerns and risks associated with the volatility of cryptocurrencies!
