eFin & Democracy: Public Lecture & Discussion
26 July 2022, Technische Universität Darmstadt
Crypto stocks and their decline on the market have increasingly become the focus of public interest for a few weeks now. Fittingly, the first Mercator Journalist in Residence, Friedemann Brenneis, will present his field of interest with a talk. Among other things, the freelance journalist reports on Bitcoin as a phenomenon between blockchain and crypto culture in his blog The Coinspondent and in the podcast Honigdachs. Bitcoin is a controversial topic even among experts: Some consider it a bubble, a waste or even a scam. Others see it as a new technology, a necessary social development and consider it to be perhaps the most important and influential invention of modern times. This public lecture for interested beginners and advanced learners explains why Bitcoin came into being, why it has not yet disappeared and why we will probably be dealing with it for a long time to come.
The lecture will be held in German.
Please note that masks are required in the rooms of the TU Darmstadt.
