What the #?!* is Bitcoin? | Jeremy Rubin | TEDxBeaconStreet

Published on Dec 23, 2014 by TEDx Talks

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Jeremy Rubin, Technical Director of the MIT Bitcoin Project, is going to explain ‘what the bleep’ Bitcoin is and why he sees it as one of the most interesting innovations in modern computer science. This eye opening talk from TEDxBeaconStreet won’t tell you what to think about cryptocurrency, but will leave you with the tools to parse this new and exciting landscape for yourself.

Hacker and MIT Junior Jeremy Rubin is known for his role in the MIT Bitcoin project, an initiative which offered every MIT undergraduate $100 in Bitcoin this fall and his award-winning project Tidbit, which is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the state of New Jersey.
