Learn about what Bitcoin is, where it came from and how blockchain and cryptocurrency are connected.

You will even have the opportunity to exchange a $20 bill for bitcoin using a RockItCoin cryptocurrency ATM and send it to a secure digital wallet during the course. We will be present to hold your hand through the process.

Plus you will learn:

  • How to buy and use cryptocurrency
  • What makes Bitcoin different from traditional money
  • How to safely store your cryptocurrency
  • How Blockchain can benefit you and the world
  • How a Cryptocurrency Transaction happens ‘Under the Hood’

What do I need to use the crypto ATM?

A mobile phone number to create an account. (VOIP phone numbers will not work)
