January's Presentation:  Cryptocurrency - Huh???
 
We are very pleased to have as our guest presenter, Shezad Kapadia, Managing Partner at AMSYS Digital Asset Fund, LP.  Shezad will introduce us to the world of cryptocurrency, and if you have ever wondered just what the “heck” is cryptocurrency, then this is a must attend presentation.  
 
Cryptocurrencies have become a global phenomenon, and though not understood by most people, banks, governments, and many companies are aware of its importance.  Otherwise, most of us are dazed and confused by this new form of digital cash.
 
Shezad will walk us through the birth of digital cash, help explain why it is so technical and complex, how it is gaining traction, and the protections available for buyers and investors.
