Bryan Chaffin is up next on The Road to Macworld, and will be taking on a very timely, controversial subject: Bitcoin. Brian’s first session, Managing and Mining Bitcoins with Your Mac, will focus on getting into Bitcoin – how to mine (create) them, the hardware needed, and what is and is not cost-effective in this emerging economic market. The “managing” part is especially important, since the downfall of Mt. Gox has cast a shadow on bitcoins that really isn’t deserved. Brian will also be leading the Bitcoins Meet-Up, where things get a little less formal but no less informative, and ideas, questions and answers will be shared. Bryan provides some background information and analysis to get you ready for the session.
The Road to Macworld/iWorld 2014 is a special MacVoices series produced in partnership with Macworld to preview some of the exhibitors and presentations at Macworld/iWorld 2014 at the Moscone North in San Francisco, March 27-29.
