On Monday, February 4th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Meni Rosenfeld:



Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized digital currency. Powered by 
a peer-to-peer network of computers running free software, it was 
created as an alternative to the existing monetary system in an attempt 
to offer people more autonomy over their finances and ease of 
transaction. In this talk, we will give a broad overview of the Bitcoin 
system and describe its motivation and its current status. We will then 
explain the open cryptographic protocol in its foundation and how it 
works to enable Bitcoin's features.

The slides are available at http://haifux.org/lectures/292/
