A pioneering club in the Lion City, Singapore Bitcoin Club brings blockchain and Bitcoin closer to the people through forums, seminars, and workshops.
A 2017 HSBC survey revealed that 59 percent of consumers polled had never heard of blockchain technology, while 80 percent of those who are familiar do not understand what it is and does.
Two years after the survey, blockchain is still finding its way to become a household name. The truth is: many people are still in the dark in regard to blockchain.
This is where Singapore Bitcoin Club comes in.
With over 3,000 members on board since its foundation in 2016, Singapore Bitcoin Club brings Distributed Ledger Technology closer to the people, specifically small to medium-scale entrepreneurs.
The Club is at the forefront of educating the public. They hold workshops, special classes, and seminars to share their blockchain knowledge. They also showcase the benefits distributed ledger technology brings to businesses of all kinds and sizes.
What Singapore Bitcoin Club Offers
Clear understanding of the key elements of blockchain and Bitcoin remains to be a primary obstacle that hinders mass adoption.
Singapore Bitcoin Club, which takes pride in being an industry member and educational partner of Singapore Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Industry Association (ACCESS), offers a one-day workshop that give attendees a high-level overview of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Also covered in this 3-hour class are the jargons used in the blockchain sector that people need to know and to engage in blockchain conversations.
Besides providing a venue for people to learn the blockchain and Bitcoin (BTC) fundamentals, the Club also extends its hands to assist those who seek profits from the market and digital currencies.
True to its words, Singapore Bitcoin Club has organized several events like Singapore Bitcoin Club – Arbitrage Session, SBC Cryptocurrency Masterclass and Crypto Technical Analysis Refresher Session & Market Update.
