This is Money recently hosted a special live Bitcoin and crypto demystified panel discussion.
It looked at the emerging financial world of cryptos and why technologists are excited about the blockchain, and focussed on how those investing can dial down their risk in this highly volatile market, avoid scams and do their research.
As promised, you can now watch the event back. The Bitcoin and crypto demystified video can be found here on This is Money’s Investing Show YouTube channel and below.
On this discussion, This is Money editor Simon Lambert was joined by Glen Goodman, author of The Crypto Trader, and Simon Peters, crypto analyst at eToro to take an open-minded but healthily sceptical look at crypto and answer reader’s questions.
From bitcoin, to ethereum and altcoin rivals, they discuss the opportunities but also very high risks of crypto and decentralised finance.
They explain how blockchain works, why it is considered important, and how innovative entrepreneurs are coming up with ideas for decentralised platforms and applications.
We hope you enjoy watching and to find out more visit our special Crypto channel on This is Money.
