EFF-Austin, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:
An Introduction To Monero And Privacy Coins
From the Organizers:
Ever wondered what the best tool available for financial sovereignty is today? Many would posit Bitcoin as the ultimate solution, but Monero has emerged as a vital and important tool for freedom in the absence of easy-to-use and approachable privacy tools for Bitcoin. We'll dive into what Monero is, why we need it, and how it takes a holistic approach to protecting each and every user.
Our speaker this month is Seth For Privacy. Seth For Privacy is the Head of Content for Foundation, a Bitcoin-centric sovereign computing company, as well as a privacy advocate, and host of the Opt Out podcast, a podcast focused on helping others take actionable steps towards improving their personal privacy.
This event will be followed by drinks and camaraderie from 9:00PM-10:00PM in the Omni Hotel lobby.
Tuesday, January 10
7 pm – 9 pm CT
The Devvie Room at Capital Factory in the Omni Hotel at 701 Brazos Street, Austin, TX
Talk will be livestreamed at https://www.youtube.com/user/austintechlive and will later be archived at https://www.youtube.com/user/effaustin. Questions for the speaker from virtual attendees may be submitted via the livestream chat or our twitter account, @EFFaustin.
