Encore of the highly popular event, digital currency decrypted.
Our world changed dramatically since earlier this year and everyday purchases shifted to online shopping and tapping your card or phone instead of cash. Yet Digital Currency and the transition to cashless societies for some feels like misconceptions, confusion and intrigue, all rolled into one. In the first of the Qoin online event series, we are going to look at the future of money in SIMPLE terms and break down the myths.
Chaired by Andrew Barker, CMO of Qoin Australia and with an array of speakers from the industry, we will discuss in simple terms the evolution of money and the growth of Crypto and Digital Currencies. We will explore how currency evolved and is changing in modern times, understand the terms around Crypto and Digital Currencies and what they can offer everyday consumers, and explain what is Blockchain technology and how safe digital currency is.
Qoin is based on a goods and services ecosystem and is available to both merchants and consumers now to purchase and use. It is a true Digital Currency for the people, introducing a new way for consumers to support and buy from local business through a growing network of 9,000 merchants Australia wide - with just a click of a button on your phone.
Qoin Australia is proud to host the first of many of these events exploring this new world of Global Currency and the ability to purchase everyday items through this ecosystem.
