Investing in Bitcoin and digital assets masterclass

Learn about Bitcoin, and why Bitcoin/digital assets should hold a place in your portfolio or business strategy.

News and media around Bitcoin picked up significant momentum in 2023, with Bitcoin trading up 160% YTD.

This comes as no surprise as the Bitcoin Spot ETF deadline is passed in Jan 2024, and the next Bitcoin halving event follows in April 2024.

Both of these events will result in a significant supply shock in the market. Bitcoin is becoming extremely scarce, due to its limited supply and increasing demand across the market. Regulations around digital assets are unfolding, and institutional adoption is growing.

At this event, we will dive deep into the mechanics behind Bitcoin, tokenomics, technical analysis and the macroeconomics driving the price action, and learn how to develop your very own digital asset strategy.
