Washington, DC Bitcoin Users Group Meetup

This month's topic is Bitcoin scaleablity.  Will bitcoin growth's be stunted by the inability of the network to process a growing, growing number of transactions? Developers are working on this problem right now. But is it really a problem or are they just tinkering with the original design.  We'll also discuss some Bitcoin fundamentals like how to read the block transactions and how transactions are verified (with or without a transaction fee).

Of course, we will have our usual open forum and roundtable. Bring your ideas, questions, and even your laptop if you'd like to demonstrate an idea or website. We meet at the North Side Social in Arlington, very near the Clarendon Metrorail Station on the Orange Line.  Parking is also easy to find.

    We had another great meetup. The attendance continues to grow as the adoption rate of Bitcoin rapidly continues. There were many good questions and comments. If you have any suggestions for topics to cover at our next meeting, please let me know.

    Hey there! Anyone know if you can get a Metro Card using Bitcoin?

      I'm sure someone would buy a Metro Card for you if you give them bitcoin. I would, but I'm a bit far from a Metro station.

      This site "http://bitspend.net/&...;­ claims to take customer's bitcoin and place any online order for a flat fee. I don't know how they plan to quickly process manually tons of orders from a vast array of websites though.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
