What we're about

Welcome to Bitcoin Sydney!

This meetup's goal is to bring members content and discussion about the only Blockchain that matters - Bitcoin.

Our speakers, organisers and members comprise some of the most technically proficient, informative and entertaining voices in the Australian Bitcoin scene. Bitcoin Sydney features monthly Bitcoin-focused speaking events delivered by these experts as well as other interesting guest speakers. We also hold regular 'after work drinks' events which provide greater opportunities for discussion and networking. For the more technically minded, our monthly online 'Socratic Seminars' widen the pool of available expertise significantly and feature well known Bitcoin developers from all over the world. This is a Meetup designed to encourage the sharing and bringing together of ideas and insights into this burgeoning movement whilst being accessible to those new to it.

Come and learn about the original and only truly immutable, trustless and decentralized blockchain without all the shilling and the distractions of the latest flavor-of-the-month alt-coins, ICOs or the scams that have attempted to ride the coattails of the the real thing.

Learn how Bitcoin is so much more than "Blockchain" and how blockchain is just one of the ingredients that Satoshi Nakomoto brought together to create something that was not thought possible beforehand and is so much more innovative and interesting than the aforementioned pretenders.

Many of our members have been involved in Bitcoin and attending meetups since at least 2013, giving you the chance to learn from their experiences of Bitcoin's repeated ups and downs.

Some events will involve the option to experiment hands-on, so bring your laptop, smartphone or mobile hotspot if you like.

Protecting your wealth with Bitcoin - Special guest speaker Peter Dunworth + Q&A

Join Bitcoin Sydney to catch up and discuss the financial revolution that is taking place before our eyes.

๐ŸŒ TOPIC:

Protecting your wealth in Bitcoin

While for many protecting their wealth in Bitcoin might seem as simple as buying it on an exchange and transferring it to their own hardware wallet, there is a whole host of things that should be considered:

- What type of legal entity to buy/hold your Bitcoin

- Viable asset protection

- Last Will and Testament

- Authorities

- Custody of your Bitcoin

- Bitcoin Estate Planning Protocols

Peter Dunworth runs a multi-family office representing high-net-worth clients based in Sydney, Australia. These would be considered "sophisticated investorsโ€ with an incomes of more than $250k or investable assets of more than $2.5m. Peter has been advising not only that Bitcoin is essential to their portfolios, but what legal structures to employ to do it most tax effectively, seizure restively and in the best way when leaving an estate.

Join us as Peter shares the sort of insights and expertise usually only known about and employed by the aforementioned demographic and how you too can use them to optimise your financial future with Bitcoin.

๐ŸŒ ATTENDANCE:

For this event, we'll be at our original presentation venue, the Upstairs Lounge at Hotel Harry. If you've not been to a Bitcoin Meetup before and want to know what it's all about this is a great opportunity to meet and join the community.

The Beef Initiative and Bitcoin - with Texas Slim

Needs a location

Join us for our monthly drinks event to catch up and discuss the financial revolution that is taking place before our eyes.

**************************************************************************
We will be joined by international visitors Texas Slim and other founders of The Beef Initiative who are in Australia for the launch of the Australian Beef Initiative. There will be a short presentation at this Meetup at around 7.00pm on The Beef Initiative and Bitcoin.

What is the Beef Initiative?

The Beef Initiative is a trade group focused on decentralising and making our food supply more localised, redundant and secure, and improving the quality of our food through pure animal protein and sound money, which is a critical input to achieving food security.

Ultimately, the Beef Initiative is about providing market access to producers and consumers and anyone in that supply chain who understands and priorities the importance of food integrity and sound money in the pursuit of living healthier and happier lives.

The Beef Initiative is a grass-roots movement intertwined with the self-sovereign ideology of Bitcoin. It strives to connect people with the sources of their food helping them decentralise their lifestyle.

You can find out more, including the work the initiative is doing evangelising and educating about Bitcoin on their Website: https://beefinitiative.com/

*******************************************************************************

These social events are the perfect opportunity to meet and get to know members of the Sydney Bitcoin community, network and share ideas, and enjoy a great evening speaking with like-minded Bitcoiners about the only blockchain that matters.

Our normal roster of experts and OGs will be in attendance where there will be more opportunity for discussion than what time permits during our usual presentation-focused events.

Newcomers and those just keen to learn more are most welcome.
