Course Description: The History, Myths, Magic, and Mystery of this new class of "currencies" -- We hear about them on the news, see them for sale in grocery stores, hear about fortunes made and LOST, and now they have made it into the comics - "Dilbert." We will explore what they are or represent, where they come from, who regulates them, how they are taxed and their future. This class is for the non-technical person who wants to better understand cryptocurrencies and their underlying technology. Note: Mr. Coad does not offer any financial recommendations or advice for the purchase or sale of these items.
