Bitcoin is a new digital online currency that is decentralized and uses cryptography to secure the network, it allows anonymity in transactions, essentially eliminates fees, and can potentially reduce or eliminate the need for third party online(or even personal) payment systems such as Banks, credit cards, and PayPal. I noticed there is no Bitcoin meetup in Utah so I decided I would take some initiative and create a meet-up to get the ball rolling here in Salt Lake City! Basically we will come up with a topic for every meeting in order to educate, create, and network all things Bitcoin and Bitcoin related. In such an early stage of development, I predict, along with many others from Silicon Valley, that the future of Bitcoin is very bright indeed. This meet-up welcomes hackers, programmers, entrepreneurs, tech savvy individuals, but you don't need to be any of the above to appreciate what Bitcoin can do, these meetings are very much open door to anyone who wants to take the time to discover a great new technological and economic experiment with great potential.
