MacVoices #14067: Road to Macworld: Bryan Chaffin Goes All In With Two Sessions On Bitcoin

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.
