Speaker Profile: Angus Maidment
Angus Maidment is one of the brains (and beards!) behind the highly successful "London Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Beginners" Meetups. He has become well known on the tech scene in London for his ability to communicate complex technical concepts in a fun, concise and easy to understand manner. He also wears a variety of jazzy shirts, so there will be no doubt who to direct your questions to at the end!

Angus started his career working in scientific high performance computing working with some of the most prestigious research universities and institutions in the UK. Alongside the technical work he was also always involved in "science communication" - taking the cutting edge science from the lab and explaining it to the general public. He has combined these experiences with his passion for cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to deliver talks at tech startups, universities, and meetups around the world!

At this event, he will be delivering a talk entitled "How NOT to Invest in Crypto!" - he will tell you about the scams, schemes and pitfalls which have claimed the fortunes of many a would-be investor. He will also cover some general investment best practices, how crypto & ICO investing is different and some easy things to look out for to protect your hard earned wealth.

NB Angus is a teller, not a seller - he wants to share knowledge with you so you can make more well informed decisions. He will not be giving any investment advice or telling you anything about things you should be investing in, just the things you should be avoiding.
