Interested in learning more about Crypto Careers?

Join the Sheridan County Economic Development Corporation Monday, Dec. 19 at 6 pm at Bottle KAP Studios, 721 Main St, Hoxie, for a free informational gathering to learn about Bitcoin Mining and how it relates to the training program through Goodland Tech, a high-tech, high-touch company based in downtown Goodland, Kansas.

Desiree Rexach of Goodland Tech will be in attendance to speak about Goodland Tech and introduce guest speaker Troy Cross, Fellow at the Bitcoin Policy Institute. Attendees will enjoy free refreshments provided by Goodland Tech.

Troy Cross is a Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, USA. He has formerly taught philosophy at Yale University and Oxford University. Troy has long been interested in bitcoin and began mining himself in 2011. He is now a Fellow at the Bitcoin Policy Institute, a non-profit educational organization advising media, policymakers, and the public. Along with fellow philosopher Andrew Bailey (Yale-NUS) Troy has devised a new and simple method of holding bitcoin that is carbon-neutral. This led to relations with companies and groups across the bitcoin industry that align with the vision of bitcoin serving as a tool to accelerate the energy transition.
