"I hope people take the time to get up to speed about this dynamic force that will eventually impact us all.” Dave Thompson

Bitcoin has taken the planet by storm in recent weeks. There are few holiday parties where the topic is not discussed. The financial news is full of talk about Bitcoin, Ethereum, the blockchain, and the digital currency boom.

The problem is the lack of a comprehensive understanding of this new currency and whether it's a good investment or not.

Meet Dave Thompson. Dave is a consultant for a national tech firm with offices in Plymouth, Michigan. He travels the country and has become an expert on Cryptocurrency.  Thompson has decided to host a seminar to help people get up to speed on this phenomenon sweeping the country and the world.

Says Thompson, "Over the next 10 years, the blockchain will do to banks what Amazon did to bookstores.  Imagine if you had the chance to be part of Amazon in 1994?"


Why listen to Dave Thompson? Who can you trust?

Dave bought his first Bitcoin in September of 2014 at the modest cost of $475 and he was hooked.  He began researching the technology behind Bitcoin to understand how it allowed tracking of financial assets without any centralized bank or trusted 3rd party.  Dave came to understand the power of the blockchain to disrupt the technology and financial sectors and came to view the blockchain as the next technology revolution of our time.  Today, there are hundreds of startups and thousands of developers around the globe working on blockchain solutions and the Cryptocurrency sector is worth over $500 Billion. 

Since that first Bitcoin, Dave has dabbled in Cryptocurrency day trading, run a successful Ethereum mining operation, invested in blockchain startups and Initial Coin Offerings, studied blockchain politics, and amassed a body of knowledge of nearly all things crypto.  Dave understands the key players and technology that differentiate the more than 1,300 different Cryptocurrencies on the market today.

Dave has more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry.  By day, he's a successful consultant focused on large-scale enterprise architecture.  On nights and weekends, Dave reads 'whitepapers', watches developer meet-ups, and keeps a watchful eye on the Cryptocurrency charts. 

"I've known Dave for many years and have had numerous conversations with him about this topic. He knows his stuff.  He's not selling any investments but does enjoy enlightening people about the unstoppable force of digital currency," says Scott Lorenz of Westwind Communications.

The seminar topics to be covered are:

  1. What is Bitcoin and how does it work?


  1. What is the Blockchain?


  1. Comparison of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and "altcoins" (there are 1,300+ to choose from)


  1. What is Bitcoin and Ethereum Mining?  Should you do it?


  1. Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash vs. Bitcoin Gold: A study of forks


  1. Is there still time left to invest in Cryptocurrency?


  1. Q&A


"This is one of the most amazing things I've ever been involved with," says Thompson. "It's rewarding to be able to discuss it with likeminded individuals on an intelligent level. I do hope people will take the time to get up to speed about this dynamic force that will eventually impact everyone."

Thompson will be hosting a 2-hour seminar in Plymouth, Michigan at the PARC on Saturday, December 30 at two convenient times: 10AM and 1PM. The PARC is located at 650 Church Street, Plymouth, MI 48170.

The cost is $99 in advance or $145 at the door. Seating is limited and advance tickets are suggested. For more information email HatRackInfo@gmail.com, call (734) 926-5103 or visit www.HatRack.info for a complete seminar outline.
