We’re excited to spotlight some of our BTC2019 teachers this year, and today, we’d like to introduce you to Hannah Rosenberg. Hannah will be teaching “Bitcoin & Lightning for Commerce.” Check out our chat with Hannah to learn more:

How did you get involved in your subject area & why are you passionate about teaching it?

I studied economics in university and became very interested in monetary theory. I’m also a big tech nerd who spent years as a web developer doing a lot of e-commerce work. I love to hangout anywhere that markets and technology collide. Both of these are incredibly empowering. I’d love to see the world using better money and better technology that enables better markets.

Why do you think certifications and standards are important in the blockchain industry today?

In such a new industry, especially one focused on money, there is a lot of misinformation out there, and a frightening amount of pretend “experts.” Certifications from a well-respected organization helps to sort through this maze. It helps learners gain confidence in their knowledge. And obtaining a certification helps instill confidence in your knowledge to employers, colleagues, and clients.

Why have you decided to teach a session at #BTC2019?

7 years ago I realized the potential of this technology and I’ve been “teaching” it to anyone who I could get to listen ever since. When the opportunity arrives to teach what you love on a professional level, you take it!

We’re looking forward to attending Hannah’s master class at BTC2019! Make sure to join us by getting your tickets here.
