What we're about

This meetup will be focused on talking about the Bitcoin SV blockchain and working on bringing adoption to the Madison area. Satoshi Nakamoto invented the first peer to peer electronic cash system that doesn't rely on a trusted third party, and we will work to bring digital cash to the Madison area.

This meetup is not focused generally on blockchain related projects, but only Bitcoin SV.

Bitcoin SV is a product of a contentious hardfork from Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash was forked from the original Bitcoin chain on August 1st, 2017 and is marked by the ticker BCH on most exchanges. For a complete history of the Bitcoin scaling debate, this article does a great job giving an overview: https://hackernoon.com/the-great-bitcoin-scaling-debate-a-timeline-6108081dbada

Bitcoin SV arose out of conflicting roadmaps for Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin SV is committed to locking down the base protocol with the original v0.1 protocol introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto. Because this was always the root of my interest when supporting Bitcoin Cash, I have decided to shift my efforts to supporting Bitcoin SV.

"The nature of Bitcoin is such that once version 0.1 was released, the core design was set in stone for the rest of its lifetime. Because of that, I wanted to design it to support every possible transaction type I could think of." - Satoshi Nakamoto

When Bitcoin was first introduced in Madison there were pioneering individuals that worked to get businesses around town to accept Bitcoin and allow it to be spent. My hope is that we can bring enough regular business to bars in town and convince them to let us spend our Bitcoin SV in exchange for beer and food.

Aside from using Bitcoin as Cash, we will also discuss the many projects being built on top of the BSV chain. You can follow us on Memo, a p2p alternative to Twitter here: https://memo.cash/profile/1GPqsstsmDbEDQ2nKbhL8rC2S7ZAt2b8Rc
