Bitcoin Social - Networking, News and Trading

*** NOTE: VENUE CHANGE ***
With the increased group size and growing RSVPs I have moved the meetup to The Bard And Banker pub just North of Hemp and Company on Government Street. 
Just ask for the Bitcoin Meetup group when you arrive.
*** NOTE: VENUE CHANGE ***

I'm open to suggestions for specific topics, but the self-directed general discussion went well enough at our first meetup, I thought I'd try it again.

I'll cover any recent bitcoin-related news, any new places in Victoria that accept bitcoin and, of course, I'll bring some bitcoins in case anyone wants to trade.

Please RSVP if you are coming so we can figure out enough seating.

    Great meetup guys. Thanks to Dylan for setting it up. Here is a cool map that shows places that accept Bitcoin worldwide: http://coinmap.org/

    Great meet up! Good job Dylan setting it up. It was the first time I haven't checked BTC price obsessively every few min. Was great to have my questions answered. Thanks! I look forward to the next one.

    is there a local bitcoin exchange in B.C /Vancouver ?

    November 25, 2013

    • Dylan P.

      Hi J.Newman. You are replying in the discussion thread for our next meetup. Can you create a new thread in the discussion forums and I'll reply there? Thanks.

    Please note the venue change, everybody. Our large group will be meeting at the Bard and Banker instead -- just down the street from Hemp and Company. Ask at the front door for the bitcoin meetup. See you then.

    Just a quick question. I was just playing around and sending money to myself. However it has been about an hour and my transaction is still pending. I understand this is very normal, but how come the transaction we did cleared so quickly? So how does say a coffee shop does it? How do they ensure payment clears before the customer leaves? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Jefferson. Rather than start a discussion in the meetup thread, I've created a discussion thread and responded there. Go here to view and reply.

    Maybe we can show people how to backup their wallets. I think backing up your wallet is so important.

    November 7, 2013

    • Dylan P.

      Are you thinking cold-storage? Or specifically backing up the wallet.dat file for a desktop client?

      November 9, 2013

    • Brent P.

      I would like to see cold storage, hot storage, and paper storage
