Bitcoin 101 Presentation + Banter for regulars

It's been a little while now and with all you new members I thought it was time for another meetup! The presentation will cover the basics of Bitcoin so all you newbies and your newbie friends will be able to receive bitcoin, spend bitcoin and quote Satoshi like a pro. If you're already up to speed with all that there will be of course the rest of the bar to chat about technology, economics and how dogecoin is much wow.

Bring some cash and we'll load up your smartphone with some bitcoin from one of the bitcoin regulars or from our shiny new bitcoin ATM.  We'll show you how to spend your bitcoin at the Dogs Bollix bar or shop online at places like and

There also may or may not be a special unveiling of a new NZ based bitcoin service, so watch out for that.

    I have also made $10,$20,$50 and $100 Bitcoin vouchers available on Trademe. I think this is the easiest way for newbies to get into Bitcoin. (But it's not for people that already have Bitcoin like us, as I am making a loss to do this) You could repost this to places where newbies could see it.

    Fun time and good intro to bitcoin in the real world. Really liked to meeting people interested in this new technology and wanting to share it with others.
