Once a week, Buttonwood SF meets to trade cryptocurrencies peer-to-peer. Cryptocurrencies are math-based currencies which aren't controlled by any central entity, but instead by a distributed computer network which secures the payment network against fraud. The first and most popular cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, which will likely be the dominant cryptocurrency being traded at each meetup (though all cryptocurrencies are welcome). Even if you've never heard of or used cryptocurrencies, bring a smartphone or laptop, a good attitude and good questions, and be prepared to have your mind blown by the possibilities which are unlocked by cryptocurrencies.

Official hashtag for Twitter / Diaspora / Facebook is #ButtonwoodSF. You can use this to coordinate trades online and promote the meetup.

Ground rules:

1. No force.

2. No fraud.

3. No coercion.

4. Have fun!

Our full anti-harassment policy can be found here. Please read it before attending your first Buttonwood SF meetup.

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.
