What appeals to you most about Bitcoin?

The underlying technology/protocol is truly revolutionary. As other have already pointed out, peer-to-peer decentralized consensus forming will enable more than just magic internet money.

When did you first hear about Bitcoin?

I've been hearing about it on and off in the mainstream news for the last few years, but mostly in the context of how it was used for black market purchases, etc. I never looked into it myself until the big run-up in value in Nov 2013 caused a flood of new news stories.

What would you like to get out of Los Angeles Bitcoin?

Want to meet more bitcoin/altcoin enthusiasts to help expand my understanding of the technology and how people plan to build upon it. Long term goal is to participate in some dev work on something useful and interesting in the wider cryptocurrency ecosystem.


Been a developer since the 1980s. After awhile you just start seeing the same old stuff wrapped in new bows. Then bitcoin came along and showed me there are still new wonders to explore.
