For many people, and nonprofits, this currency is confusing and remains shrouded in mystery.

While the amount of donors are still few in number compared to traditional fundraising the upside of accepting Bitcoin can be substantial.

During this presentation you will get an overview on: What is Cryptocurrency? Who owns it? How to get it? And what to do with it once you accept a donation?
