LA & SG Bitcoin Meetup in Singapore

Last week I hosted a very successful Bitcoin meetup in Los Angeles featuring a number of well respected virtual currency experts, venture capitalists and angel investors in the space. I'll be on the ground in Singapore from Sep 9th - 20 and would love to coordinate a meetup to share information and perspectives.

    Anyone paying with Bitcoin in Artistry or elsewhere, would you be willing to speak with Straits Times for the piece about Bitcoin they're preparing? If yes, please send me your phone number, so I can give it to the reporter. Thanks!

    Had a side discussion with some people on Bitcoin transaction fees. Went back and did a search and found the link below. Not sure how accurate it is, but it sounds convincing. http://bitcoinfees.com/

    For anyone who hasn't 'liked' it yet, here's the fanpage for Bitcoin Singapore: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bitcoin-Singapore/431452580303555
    (some meetup photos just uploaded, please tag yourselves)

    Also- if anyone is looking to buy/sell BTC in singapore, I may be able to help you with that: http://coinrepublic.com/
    You can also see a pretty smooth implementation of the Bitpay system there- use the promo code 'meetup' to test it out for $0.10 in btc.

    Hi All.

    Though I finally got the confirmation about a new exciting place willing to accept bitcoins, they're unfortunately booked for a different meetup this Thursday. So let's just do it in Hackerspace this time, you can pay drinks with satoshis there as well :-)

    See you all on Thursday!

    • Jeremy H.

      Hi Thomas, where is the exciting place got accept bitcoins?

      September 10, 2013

    • Tomas F.

      I'll reveal that next week when they're ready :-)

      September 10, 2013

  • Tomas F.

    Hi All, I'm thinking maybe make it a bit more this time then just meet and chat and rather have three 10-minute talks about bitcoin related topics. Steve will introduce us activities in his parts of the universe. Would anyone be interested in talking about something else?

    August 28, 2013

    • Philip

      Ok, Tomas. Its simple stuff, perhaps light relief from and a lead in to the more theoretical discussions

      September 9, 2013

    • Tomas F.

      There's a projector in Hackerspace if you want to give a presentation. I'll have my laptop there, so if bring it along or have it on cloud, you can use it.

    We have completed our first day on the ground here in Singapore and after 6 meetings we have a good initial lay of the land. Look forward to seeing everyone at the meetup Thursday!

    September 9, 2013

  • Tomas F.

    Hi All,

    I haven't been able to secure any new place accepting bitcoins yet, but I'll try hard to do it this week (you can try as well! :-), but as a backup, I booked Hackerspace for now.

    Hi guys,
