On Tuesday the 15th of February we welcome Colin LeMahieu Director of the Nano Foundation as our after dinner speaker who will talk on the subject of Building a Better Digital Currency.
The Nano network was started by Colin as a software engineer's approach to the idea of a global digital currency. With a longstanding interest in economics, he realised that the idea of better cryptocurrency was worth pursuing. He will explain how that realisation led to a series of changes to the algorithms used by other cryptocurrencies can be made to solve the time, energy and and expense issues experienced by alternatives, such as dropping transaction times to below a second and eliminating fees. He will also comment on the current state of the digital currency world including the entrance of nation states with offerings like the Bank of England with "Britcoin" .
