Venue change! We are now meeting at Geekdom: https://www.google.com/maps/place/620+Folsom+St/@37.785271,-122.3975806,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x8085807c44912c69:0xa95771345c6d698e?hl=en

Welcome to the first SF Bitcoin Meetup Expo!

This month, we're switching things up a little as an opportunity to experiment with a different format to showcase a variety of concepts and companies! We're replacing the speakers with booths and announcements with a physical bulletin board/table so bring those flyers!

Confirmed booths:

Paper wallets workshop: Why cold storage? - Step by step process of creating a paper wallet at home (Been meaning to set up a paper wallet for better Bitcoin security but never got around to it or know others in this position? Good opportunity to learn!)

Basic Bitcoin workshop: Why bitcoin? - Setting up wallets and making transactions walk-through (Bring your friends/co-workers/family who are just getting into Bitcoin!! We want this to be a comfortable opportunity for people to learn and ask questions.)

Bitcoin Not Bombs/ShinyBadges.com booth: Lots of experience with Bitcoin-based charities and amazing self-designed Bitcoin merchandise (You know those awesome Bitcoin lapel pins everyone seems to have? Buy them and support Bitcoin Not Bombs charity campaigns.) http://www.bitcoinnotbombs.com/

Lamassu ATM machine: buy Bitcoins with fiat! (Perfect for supporting the vendors, workshops and meetup in bitcoin!) https://lamassu.is/

It's Time For Plan B booth: awesome t-shirts and more! http://timeforplanb.org/

Buyer's Best Friend booth: BBF is the leading source for innovative specialty and artisan products, starting in food. Huge bitcoin supporters! http://www.bbfdirect.com/

As always there will be beer, soda and bartenders so bring your ID if you look young.

Feedback always welcome! Interested in vending, speaking or volunteering at this event or another? Contact Paige or Isabelle!

As always, thanks to Coinbase and 20Mission for the support!

      We're very sorry, had to change venue last minute. We'll try to avoid this for future events

    I'm super sorry to those who missed the meetup because of the location change. Thank you to Geekdom for taking us in at the last minute and Kord for helping secure the location. Thanks to Andreas for bartending and donating his tips to the meetup! This was very much a team effort. I think we'll do this booth/vendor thing again. It seemed successful and can help sustain the meetup. If you have any feedback or ideas, send them along!

    Any last minute individuals interested in bartending for tips? Consists of opening beers and checking IDs of those that look potentially underage. Please reply to this comment and plan to come to 20Mission by 6:45pm tomorrow. Thanks!
