Simon Dingle – What The Hell Is Up With Bitcoin?

Inspirational Events Platform “Heavy Chef” is taking a deep dive into the world of Bitcoin, with one of the most vocal commentators on cryptocurrency in the country.

Heavy Chef has invited Simon Dingle, the CEO of Inves, to unpack the meaning behind the dips and dives, the confusion and the elation behind the most talked about investment of our age – is Bitcoin today’s Tencent, or tomorrow’s tulip?

Simon Dingle is the founder of Inves Capital and Phantom Design, and has been working in cryptocurrency since 2011. He was part of the teams that built 22seven and Luno in Cape Town, and Curve in London. He is currently focused on investments and work in the fintech arena where there are opportunities to bridge the old world of money with the new world of cryptocurrency. Before all that Simon worked in strategic communications with clients that included Google, Oracle, and the Shuttleworth Foundation. He also used to host shows on Talk Radio 702, a bunch of podcasts, was technology editor at Finweek Magazine, wrote columns for Brainstorm and Computing SA, and still does a weekly tech show on 5FM.

Simon Dingle will present “What The Hell Is Up With Bitcoin” in Johannesburg at OPEN Workspace on Wednesday 28th February – and in Cape Town on the 27th February.


We have also scheduled two VIP Masterclasses with Simon Dingle spending a lot more time unpacking the topic of Bitcoin and deep diving into the cryptocurrency research and stats you need to be paying attention to – and giving you personal focus on how to implement them into your thinking, strategy and investment philosophy. Both Masterclasses will occur within a day of our evening events – the morning of the 27th in CT, and the morning of the 1st March in Johannesburg – and will cost R1480 per seat, for three hours with Simon. Sessions are limited to 25 people per Masterclass.
