Hi Blockchain fans and Munich Startups, This Tuesday I would like to share our experience how you can Crowdfund (Crowdfunding) your project and get extra free funds for your project! Have you heard about Steemit.com yet? Steem is a new social media platform that works like Reddit, with the kicker, It PAY´S you for your content. The more buzz you can create the more money you will get paid out! It sounds crazy, but in the Blockchain industry, everything is possible. We at BitShares Munich started a couple of crowdvotings and had a huge success. This Tuesday I would like to share our insights how we paid out thousands of Dollars and got our app translated into 44 languages for free!! ... not bad right? https://steemit.com/writing/@kencode/do-you-know-a-foreign-language-crowdvoting Got an idea? A project you would like to fund? Join this month's Blockchain meetup and learn more how it works. Looking forward to seeing you all for a drink at MyFable. cheers Christoph

- Bitcoin & Blockchain - Workshop, Talks and Demos
Dear BitShares and Blockchain fans, we partnered up with our friends from the Bitcoin Meetup Group to present you monthly Blockchain & FinTech workshops in the heart of Munich. We want to thank Michael for the great organisation and the Wayra team to provide us their awesome location in the heart of Munich! Hope to see you all there! Here are the infos for the event: http://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Bitcoin-Munich/events/230075526/?eventId=230075526&chapter_analytics_code=UA-42131848-1 ____________________________________ Hello crypto enthusiasts! Apart from our more informal Stammtisch, we organize this monthly event with talks, presentations, demos and workshops. Usually we start off with an introductory primer for newcomers, explaining Bitcoin and the essentials of the Blockchain protocol and what the fuzz is all about, rounding things up with recent news in the space. Then we'll have additional talks about a more specific subject, or have invited guests introduce and demonstrate their projects or their businesses. (You're always welcome to give a talk or present your project too. Just contact one of the organizers!) Besides, you can bring your notebooks and devices and hack away, during or after the talks. We exchange our knowledge, inspire each other, advance our projects, and whatever else we would come up with. Also if you're a newcomer to the crypto-world or a non-programmer, we'll gladly explain and show the basics, e.g. how to install and use a wallet. The event takes place in the heart of Munich at the Kaufingerstraße near the Marienplatz. A big thanks to Wayra for making their great location available to us. We're excited to have you, and we'll continue to strive towards making this event a great success! We have big plans for the future! Agenda: tba --- Hallo Crypto-Enthusiasten! Neben unserem eher informellen Stammtisch organisieren wir diesen monatlichen Event mit Vorträgen, Präsentationen, Demos und Workshops. Gewöhnlich beginnen wir mit einem Einführungsvortrag für die Neulinge, in dem Bitcoin und das Wesentliche des Blockchain-Protokolls erklärt werden, und worum sich der ganze Wirbel eigentlich dreht. Abgerundet wird das ganze mit den jüngsten News aus dem Themengebiet. Dann haben wir zusätzliche Vorträge über ein spezielles Thema, oder eingeladene Gäste stellen und demonstrieren ihre Projekte und Unternehmen vor. (Ihr seid jederzeit willkommen, ebenfalls einen Vortrag zu halten oder euer Projekt zu präsentieren. Kontaktiert einfach einen der Organisatoren!) Außerdem könnt ihr eure Notebooks und Gerätschaften mitbringen und drauflos hacken, während oder nach den Vorträgen. Wir tauschen unsere Kenntnisse aus, inspirieren uns gegenseitig, bringen unsere Projekte voran, und auf was wir sonst noch alles so kommen. Auch wenn ihr Neuling in der Crypto-Welt oder Nichtprogrammierer seid, erklären und zeigen wir gerne die Grundlagen, z.B. wie man ein Wallet installiert und benutzt. Der Event findet im Herzen von München statt in der Kaufingerstraße nahe dem Marienplatz. Ein großes Dankeschön an die Wayra, die uns diese großartige Location bereitstellen. Wir freuen uns auf euch und sind stets dran, diesen Event zu einem großen Erfolg werden zu lassen! Wir haben große Pläne für die Zukunft! Agenda: tba
- Let's pay with Krypto at the Kasse!
Our first release of the Smartcoins POS system is now complete. It allows you to pay at the Kasse with Smartcoins (such as BTS, bitEUR, bitUSD, bitCNY, etc) or other cryptocurrencies too such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, ETH, DOGE, PPC, etc. The free Smartcoins POS system allows the merchant (such as Mediamarket, Edeka, Bauhaus, My Fable coffee shop, etc) to accept any/all of the top cryptocurrencies at ZERO cost. This is how mass adoption of cryptocurrencies can occur. A very low barrier to entry (oh, and it's in 44 languages too which helps a bit). A Smartcoins POS system can also issue automated rewards card (loyalty points in a sense) as a blockchain token (the merchant can name the token whatever they want). This way, once you pay at the Kasse, the POS system can be set to send you a certain amount of that token, discounting your future purchases at that shop. For merchants that use the Odoo platform at their Kasse, we have also released an integrated version of Smartcoins POS that those users will find very familiar. Odoo is used by over 50,000 companies globally so if you own a business, you should check it out! In Odoo POS... eReceipts: If you use a BitShares Wallet (now available on google play (and soon Apple app store)) scanning the merchants QR code will also get you an electronic version of the detailed receipt of your purchase which you can use for accounting purposes. It is sent as an open-source json-to-pdf file which nearly any phone/pc can read. In mobile wallet v1.1... I also coded an "Overdraft Protection" feature into the mobile wallet so in case you don't have enough to pay the bill, your wallet can automatically draw from an alternate crypto balance so that you are not left standing there at the Kasse looking like a bum with no bling ;) First round is on the house, so please come on out for some fun and friends! :)
- Fintech & Blockchain: A merge in heaven?
Hi Blockchain and Fintech fans, In this meeting I would like to invite all Fintech & Blockchain startups and fans to join our conversation about the future of finance. 2016 will be definitely the year of Blockchains, with +50 banks investing over $1 billion USD in research and mergers. Several startups rally to success and deliver the first round of products & services for the mainstream. Spearheading Abra, Circle, 21, Bitpay and a few others. But what does that mean for the current fintech industry? Are multi million startups like Number26 doomed already? Come, join us and find out! Thanks to Petra and the whole myFable team to host us again!! Looking forward to see you all on Tuesday. You want to pitch your idea? Contact us!
- BitShares Munich : What's Technically Possible?
Guten Abend! It's time to discuss: • Top 5 reasons why Banks and Exchanges are connecting to the BitShares blockchain and platform • Free, downloadable mobile wallets for Android, iPhone and (fingers crossed) Windows Phone • Upcoming Stealth technology (hides your public address AND amounts being sent for the ultimate in privacy) • New 2.0 capabilities such as 3sec transactions and thousands of tps (BitShares now handles more transactions per second than Visa and Mastercard combined) • Raising money with User-Issued Assets (UIA) and Fee-Backed Assets (FBA) Please also thank our gracious host Petra, as she runs the My Fable coffee shop ...and spread the word! :) ===================== In February, we have another free App for Point Of Sale (POS) systems that should be released, so if you own a business and you want to accept cryptocurrencies, please join our Meetup group for the POS demo!
- BitShares Munich - Crypto Currencies, Crowdfunding, Instant Online Banking
Dear BitShares fans, in our last meeting we talked about the power of decentralized "bank" accounts and the exciting possibilities what a people to people money transfer system could bring to society. In our next meeting we would like to talk about practical use cases for crypto currencies. How you, as a small business, could use instant payments and crowdfunding opportunities for your next start up! We also would like to talk about how you can use the BitShares referral system to earn up to 80% of the fees generated by your referred user. Think about a membership card for your business where you can provide an awesome service to your customer and earn a passive income on the side! Please also thank our host for the night, My Fable. They provide us with awesome food and drinks for our monthly meetups. Thank you Petra. We are looking forward to see you at our next meetup. Cheers Christoph
