  • Digital Economy Conference

I first interviewed Edward in the fall of 2015 at Infotec2015 in Omaha.  I found the Bitcoin story interesting and invited him to the show.  AlphaBITCOIN is located in Papillion Nebraska and one of the many tech companies in the Silicon Prairie.  AlphaBITCOIN helps business set up point of sale systems for customers who want to do Bitcoin transactions via a card or over the phone.  They also help integrate bitcoin transactions for large Enterprises as well as educating and informing the consumer about bitcoin.

During the show I created a Coinbase account.  I get a $25 bitcoin credit for every $100 deposit that is made with this link: https://www.coinbase.com/join/55b1870069702d49520000ae


I have often seen Bitcoin as a currency to end all currency.  What it really does best is bypass governmental restrictions and costs and makes it easy and cheap to pay for things internationally.
