Networking evening with Circle and Mike Hearn @ Club Workspace

We're pleased to announce that the team from Circle are going to be in London on Tuesday 21st January and they'd like to get to meet the London bitcoin community.

Join us at Club Workspace in Clerkenwell where we'll host an informal evening with presentations from CEO, Jeremy Allaire, and CTO, Sean Neville.

We're also very pleased to announce that core Bitcoin developer, Mike Hearn, will be joining Jeremy and Sean and will also be taking to the stage. If you're new to bitcoin, be sure to check out some of Mike's previous presentations - fascinating stuff.

This event is weighted towards those of you that are exploring business opportunities in the bitcoin space and will hopefully also provide a platform for you to discuss ideas and connect with investors and business/technical partners.

If you're new to bitcoin and are hoping to learn more about the basics, we'll be holding our next bootcamp at TechHub in February.

Presentations will take up less time on this occasion in order to allow room for an open-mic session where ideas can be pitched and services can be offered.

Many of you will have heard about Circle's well funded launch recently but visit their website if you'd like to know more: 

We'll post a schedule for the evening nearer the time.

See you there

    Hello guys, I wanna sell some BTC, what should be the best way to do it, Localbitcoins or Bittylicious ?

    January 23, 2014

    • Marc W.

      I guess three or so per week would be a reasonable minimum. If you're technical, getting set up isn't that hard, but there are things to do like setting up SSL keys and running PHP (all instructions are given).

      January 24, 2014

    • Andy B.

      Good, let me read the Bittylicious wikiw page, prepare everything and then I will try to contact you.

      Thanks - are the rest of the talks going up as well? Amazing night by the way, thanks to everyone that was involved - still charged from it :)

      Hi charlie. We're glad you enjoyed it as much as we did. Tomer and Aaron are working on the rest of the clips. We'll post when they're ready

    Hi guys, this is kind of unrelated - and apologies if this is the wrong place to it, but whilst we've got bitcoin enthusiasts on here - I wanted to give a quick plug to my music.

    We released this tune a year before #Satoshi released #bitcoin. Makes more sense now than it ever did before, and I'm thinking of writing and recording another verse for this based on cryptocurrency...

    The first verse is me rapping, the second is my mate.

    Let me know your thoughts...

    Excellent. Particularly interested in Mike Hearn's talk on forthcoming features in bitcoin. Had some great conversations with a range of smart people who are giving cryptocurrency serious thought. Thanks very much to organisers.
