Open money, also known as cryptocurrency, is digital money which has no controlling authority and with which anyone can participate across the globe. Bitcoin is the prime example of open money, but there are others as well. Open money lowers transaction costs and empowers people to have unencumbered access and control over their cash. This is a meetup for enthusiasts and the curious about bitcoin and decentralized cryptocurrencies. Whether you've never heard of bitcoin or already own a few, want to learn or want to trade, this meetup is for regular folks and businesspeople alike. The point is to build a supportive group which serves to inform the larger community, providing valuable and fact-based information about the promises and pitfalls of this exciting new technology. Also, the Bitcoin community tends to be predominantly male, so we'd like to express a particular welcome and enthusiasm for women to join us. Open money is for everyone! By the way, running a meetup involves paying If you'd like to donate to these costs, the qr code above is the group wallet, you can send there. The wallet address is: 1MpLN82JBUiButRdef8pC75fE3tPD7fT6r. Excess funds, if any, will go to developing the meetups and not my personal pocketbook.
