BOAM is for Bitcoin beginners to Bitcoin experts. Everyone is welcome!
BOAM! is New Zealand’s first Bitcoin Open Air Market, a dedicated space for Kiwis to and buy and sell small amounts of Bitcoin off each other as well as socialise and chat about all things crypto!
We believe Bitcoin and blockchain will have the same impact on the world as the internet. Our goal is to help as many Kiwis and Kiwi businesses as we can interact with and use Bitcoin.
There are already many great Bitcoin and Blockchain meetups in Auckland that give great talks about what Bitcoin is, so our aim is to take it to the next level and give people the chance to actually acquire some on the night.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BOAM?
This is an event for people to 'dip their toes’ in the water of cryptocurrency. It is not designed for people to make money, but to interact with Bitcoin in a very real/tangible way. That is why we encourage a $100 limit on a trade.
The evening kicks off with a small introductory talk about Bitcoin. From there we will let the trading begin! We will have have a live Bitcoin price ticker and there will be some Bitcoin experts on hand to help anyone setup a Bitcoin wallet and help make a successful Bitcoin trade.
We want it be a very friendly and relaxing night. The idea is to give as many people the opportunity to access this revolutionary technology and help grow Bitcoin uptake in New Zealand.
