6.30pm - Welcome and introduction
6.45pm - Stephan Livera: NODL

Come and meet the man behind the most respected podcast in Bitcoin. In this presentation he will be discussing the NODL which is a Bitcoin and Lightning Full node implementation that can be run right out of the box with minimal technical experience.
7.15pm - Hass McCook: Casa Node

Hass will be showing us his Casa Node, which is another Bitcoin Full node and Lightning node that has also recently hit the market as a way for anyone to use Bitcoin in the fully trust-less way it was originally intended. Hass is a long-time Bitcoin evangelist who has given many informative and entertaining presentations on Bitcoin in recent years. You can check out some of Hass's articles here:
7.45pm - John Pratt: Blockstream Satellite

Finally, I will be demonstrating my satellite connected Bitcoin full node which I will be able to connect to live during the presentation so you can see the interface as it operates. I will explain the process I went through to set this up and what the reasons and use cases are for this system.
8.00pm+ Q&A, Networking, Chat

These will not be overly technical presentations so if you are new to Bitcoin and want to find out more, please don't be put off. The speakers and many attendees of these meetups are able to make these concepts accessible to people of all knowledge levels.

**Wednesday is also $10 burger night at the hotel. I highly recommend them ;-)**

With both seasoned Bitcoin veterans and organizers going back as far as 2011 and newer arrivals into the world of Bitcoin technology and trading, this is a good opportunity to talk about developments and trends in the fast-evolving world of disruptive innovation and finance.

At Hotel Harry you will be able to have food & drink in pleasant surroundings before we get going with short talks by industry experts, soapbox talks, and Q&A between the audience and the speakers, as well as the chance to discuss between attendees and form discussion groups.

We'll be in a reserved area upstairs on LEVEL 1 with wheelchair access via a lift. Just ask a staff member on arrival.
RSVP is required as seating is limited. Please remember to cancel if you can't make it along.
