Washington, DC Bitcoin Users Group Meetup

This month's theme is "being your own Bitcoin bank."  We'll discuss security issues around storing bitcoins, the different types of bitcoin wallets, and basic network and endpoint security.

We will gather to network, do some trading, etc. Bring your ideas, questions and perhaps even your laptop if you want to demo an idea or website.  We will meet at Matchbox on 14th Street in the U Street Corridor -[masked]th Street @ T Street.   Closest Metro is at U street on the Green/Yellow lines.  We will meet upstairs, in the front area closest to 14th Street.   Persons under 21 will be allowed (not like our last meetup).  Please tip your server generously (20% plus) as this is a challenging work assignment for the wait staff at MatchBox and we want to be welcomed back to our venues.

    Loved talking with Bitcoin enthusiasts! Will watch for a group to form in Reston or further west. Best of luck! BTW: Matchbox was great - wish I would have gotten there earlier to eat something! A little hard to hear everyone. Maybe bring a microphone?

    Really love this group but if I go tonight it means taking even more time off from work after the holidays so I'm skipping. Have fun and see you guys next time!

      Oh, hey! You're the guy with the crazy sound effects! Impressive that you collect so much audio clips for your reporting, as opposed to just reading texts.

    Sorry I can't make it. If I was there I would ask about brain wallets. Can you be dropped off naked in the middle of the Dead Sea and still have access to your bitcoins? Assuming you're rescued and gain access to a computer/internet. :)

    I was in for Arlington, but making it in the heart of DC adds another 40 minutes for 7 extra miles. Not an efficient choice.

      We'll have an Arlington Meetup on Monday, January 27th--We are working to have 3 meetups per month - one in VA, one in DC and one in MD.

    • Dmitry

      The MD one, wouldn't that be the BTC Baltimore group?

    Unbelievable newbie! Trying to navigate through al this. Must be an imbecile! Trying to pay a bill and leave a tad over for "investment." Don't have the big money. Love to be part of this discussion...for whatever I can contribute...

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
