This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is it possible for someone to learn, what the bitcoin is, in 5 minutes? What does the bitcoin means as an emerging path? Antonis tries, in his pitch talk to give answers to those questions.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
