Initially the main focus of this group was purely social. For a while lots of people came out and then the turnout nosedived, due to unforseen circumstances with Mount Gox related to Bitcoin.
Since then the focus has also shifted, more towards training, exchanging ideas and providing recommendations...we still have the occasional social gathering as well. The training is free. We are happy to have more people learn bitcoins and hopefully build a community of knowledgeable bitcoin users who might become your future business partners
2016 Feb Lior completed bitcoin training and has received his first bitcoins as a wage. Dave Faulkmore awarded Lior with a Satori coin after completing his training. Satori coin is a paper wallet shaped like a poker chip. Each Satori coin has an ID. Can get the public bitcoin address from the satoricoin.jp web site. With the bitcoin address can send bitcoins to that address. Then the bitcoins can be delivered physically. This helps overcome the abstract nature of bitcoins.
2016 Jan Handrian is from Indonesia. He runs a Bitcoin Core full node on a MSWindows laptop and uses breadwallet. He trades on bitflyer.jp We met in Honmachi sbux to socialize and also 2 learn about bitcoins. If Handrian installs any wallet on a laptop running linux, will give him a free satoshi coin (poker chip with a paper wallet preloaded with 0.001btc)
