Is Bitcoin money? What’s its relation to the more than 1,500 other cryptocurrencies out there? Should you own this stuff? Will you be paid in it someday? And what does blockchain have to do with any of it? If you’ve got crypto questions, join McGuffin Creative Group and Dr. Lamont Black for McGuffin Mornings. We promise a timely, eye-opening discussion and Q&A on a market Warren Buffett called “probably rat poison squared” yet seems poised to transform our very concept of currency.
