Bitcoin Knowledge: Running a Node on the Network
June 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm EDT
We have another jam packed educational session for you! Stop by to learn how to run a Bitcoin node!
What is a Bitcoin node and why are they important you ask!?
The reason bitcoin is the best form of money in human history is because Bitcoin nodes operate all over the globe in many jurisdictions. Anyone even moderately tech savvy with an internet connection and a bit of space on their computer hard drive can run a node. Bitcoin has a life of its own because there is no central point of failure since reachable nodes communicate with each other 24 hours a day to maintain a global consensus of all transactions on the Bitcoin network.
The event will start at 6 p.m. sharp! Arrive on time so you don’t get locked out of the building or miss the presentation. We will be talking Bitcoin nodes this meeting but are also here to answer any questions about bitcoin and digital currencies.
