NORTH CENTRAL INTERNATIONAL LECTURE EXAMINES CRYPTOCURRENCY BITCOIN

Free virtual event takes place February 25 at 7 p.m.

North Central Michigan College will host an international lecture on the basics of the digital cryptocurrency bitcoin.  Attorney and technologist Pamela Morgan, who has been working in bitcoin and open blockchains since 2014, will share her knowledge via Zoom at 7 p.m. on February 25.  Preregistration is required at https://www.ncmclifelonglearning.com/event-4097175/Registration.

“Everyone seems to know the word ‘bitcoin’ these days, but not many people understand what it really is, why it has value, and how open blockchain technologies like bitcoin could impact our future,” Morgan said.

Licensed to practice law in Michigan and Illinois, Morgan teaches other lawyers how to use bitcoin and open blockchain technology to reduce risk and uncertainty in business and legal settings.  Her workshops have been lauded as providing “clarity amid all the hype.”  

Morgan is also a widely respected authority on multi-signature governance, inheritance planning, and legal innovation using digital currencies.  Her book, Cryptoasset Inheritance Planning: A Simple Guide for Owners, provides a clear blueprint to inheritance planning for those holding cryptocurrency, tokens, crypto-collectibles, and other cryptoassets.

Morgan’s expertise has been featured in Bloomberg BNA, Reuters, Wired Germany, Motherboard/VICE, International Business Times, NPR’s Marketplace Make Me Smart, Epicenter, Let’s Talk Bitcoin, The Bitcoin Game, and Sane Crypto.
