Washington, DC Bitcoin Users Group Meetup

This month's theme will be "Accepting Bitcoin in Your Business." We will discuss the ways your business can start accepting bitcoins as a means of payment.  What are the advantages and disadvantages of accepting bitcoins? Who can help with setting up bitcoin payment processing?  What are the risks?  If you are a business owner accepting bitcoins, we would love to hear about your experiences with accepting bitcoin and how you set it up.

We will also have are usual open forum and Q&A. 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.

    Very good discussion of BtC for the attending media and members. As always the views around the table(s) brought out interesting views and counterpoint. Very enjoyable.

    Make sure you tell him that the group spawned a bitcoin website! My site bitpremier.com launched today! I'll try to make it Tuesday, but don't know if I'll be there.

    I just heard from Evan Koslof of NBC news...News 4 will be sending a team out to North Side Social to interview people attending the Meetup this coming Tuesday evening. They are curious about how things are going with Bitcoin in the DC area.

    https://twitter.com/David_Culver is planning to be there to interview us.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
