Are you intrigued by cryptocurrencies, but still don’t quite understand how they work?  Neither do we.  That’s why we combed the Border Region to find three of experts to demystify cryptocurrency and blockchain technology at our next Nerd Night: Cryptocurrency.  After all, if you had invested $100 into Bitcoin seven years ago, it would be worth $28,341,266 today!
