We'll be hosting the first London version of the well known "Satoshi Square" face-to-face bitcoin marketplace on Saturday 18th Jan under the canopy on Bishops Square at Spitalfields Market.

It will be an informal social affair where newcomers can come and learn more about bitcoin and people are free to exchange coins amongst themselves if they wish.

Thanks to Tom from Bitprice for getting this organised. 

Cheers

    Hey guys, lovely meeting you last weekend. I was chatting to someone that sold mining rigs, unfortunately I can't for the life of me remember who it was. Can anyone shed any light on who it was or where I can buy a decent rig? Thanks!

      Looked like a great event. Is there another being planned? Or any regular face-to-face exchanges?

    OK, managed to get a copy of the BBC Footage from the BitCoin Meetup on our YouTube Channel. Here it is:

    Enjoy. Seems like the media are starting to move away from BitCoin being just for drugs. We have progress. ;-)

  • John G

    Even though I got there ~3.30, I still enjoyed the socialising and chat and particularly at the end with just the 4 of us stalwarts. Never got to see one of those paper bitwallets but learnt lots about whats happening in various sectors anyway :) Thanks all!

    January 19, 2014

  • Catherine

    i have changed my mind and I won't be coming along to meet any of you lovely people as I haven't the energy to swim my way through so many new faces. I will contact one or two people who have suggestions I could go with. Thank you for organising this though and I hope turn up another time.

    January 18, 2014

    • Iain C.

      Hi Catherine, if you have any questions or need help getting set up or just getting passed the barriers, let me know... Do you use Skype?

      January 18, 2014

    • Alyzande

      Exactly agree with what Catherine said. Next time.

  • Harry P.

    It was a good session. Caught up with a few people who I new from other seminars. The auction was fun. A good intro for newbies. A presentation or two would have helped to give it more focus.

  • Bitcoinchecker

    Great day yesterday. Although it was promoted as a trading event, most people treated it as another meet-up and it was great catching up with everyone.
    Looking forward to the next one.
    well done organisers.

    January 19, 2014

  • Matthew S.

    Thanks for organizing this! I had a lot of fun. If anyone still wants bitcoins but was too shy to shout into the trading ring - you can still get in touch and I'll help you out: [masked] :)
