Last Meetup Overview & Our Next Event

November was our biggest meetup yet. Every meeting attracts new Bitcoiners, but November completely exceeded our expectations. Whether this was a result of the rising value of a bitcoin or all of the positive media attention, it is certain that Bitcoin fever is spreading through Montreal! With over 150 guests it was difficult to find an empty spot in our meetup space during our November meetup.

Everyone who attended the meetup had the opportunity to try out the bill payment service Bylls, talk to George Mandrik from as well as participate in our monthly Satoshi Square. As usual, all beginners were encouraged to join our chief ambassador Fabian’s workshop in order to learn all about Bitcoin basics.
Many local entrepreneurs announced their decision to accept Bitcoin payments for their goods and services and M. Jacobson, Founder of the Bitcoin Embassy, reminded us that in addition to continuing to promote Bitcoin, the Embassy team is always working diligently to open a dialogue with governments and financial institutions and introduce them to Bitcoin.

Don’t miss our next event, December 14th, 2:30, at the Bitcoin Embassy.

    well attended. Very interested and motivated group of Bitcoin enthusiasts and experts. How do we encourage more female attendance since 80% of all purchases are influenced by Women.

      Hi Mallory, I have been pondering this very issue since the last meetup. My daughters showed up for Novembers mingle part of the meetup but never ended up speaking to anyone. They are in an entrepreneurship program currently and have a good group they are working with on assignments. I am going to bring a group of them to the next meetup in January. What do you say to getting some speakers there to inspire and provoke interest.

      The same tactics can be used for speakers as for participants. Also, if you start with getting women to speak then more women will start participating.
