Wow, it’s Christmas already! That really snuck up on us. And as you might expect, cryptocurrency meetups are a bit scarce this week as everyone is busy with family and friends. So, enjoy the holiday season, and enjoy the recent rally that took bitcoin not only above $20,000 but well above $23,000. That was certainly a nice Christmas present and a good way to end 2020.
We’d appreciate it if you could take a moment of your time to complete a short (30 second) survey to help us improve your experience with the Boston Blockchain Association in the future. You can access the survey here. Thank you in advance for your time and attention.
If you aren’t already, please help support technology and blockchain development in Boston by becoming a member of the Boston Blockchain Association today. All you have to do is apply to become a member (takes just a minute of your time) to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events. Blockchain technology is the future of many global industries. Get involved in the future!
Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
Thursday, December 24, 2020, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST
In this meetup, we will have a demonstration showing how to move your bitcoin from an online exchange to a Ledger hardware wallet. We will discuss: the security implications of using hardware vs. software wallets, how to avoid Phishing scams, counterparty risks of keeping bitcoin on an exchange, and how to recover your funds if your hardware wallet were to stop working.
