Thursday Presentation - "Bitcoin: The Future of Money, Dangerous or Both?"

Sounds like there's quite a bit of interest in having a night for a more formal bitcoin presentation. Several people have said Thursdays work well for them so it was suggested that we might try the third Thursday of the month to give people a couple of weeknight options and hopefully more people could attend. I know we've got a really knowledgeable group so it would be great if we are able to pull together some speakers on different areas of bitcoin. Since we weren't able to use the conference room last time was thinking it'd be great if Matt can give the intro to bitcoin presentation this time if he's able. There's also the news on taxes and I know there are others in the group who have a lot of knowledge on certain topics that they might be willing to share.

    High on my charts only reached $492.76. Google BTC malware story (tape bomb) took out price advance, after 78% retrace of Fibonacci, which is one of my fave places to enter trade.

    Pizza West already had the party room booked for the 17th but Matt and I were able to get it reserved for the 24th. Hopefully that still works for everyone and sorry for any confusion.

    Another future topic for presentations: altcoins. What are the pros and cons of altcoins? How do you get them?

    Would one of our programmer members be willing to present on using the bitcoin API sometime? Some topics that would be interesting is how use the API to attach a miner's fee and write messages on the blockchain.

    The presentation is an introduction to Bitcoin and other digital currencies, covering topics such as understanding bitcoin, advantages, disadvantages, regulatory overview, use by businesses and the future of bitcoin. It's about 20 minutes. The rest of the evening can be question/answer/discussion and a chance to talk bitcoin generally as we do at other meetups. It will be a chance for newcomers to get some exposure. Hopefully some of our "regulars" will be present to help field questions and also heckle me.

    For those interested, I am presenting an introduction to Bitcoin at the Omaha West Rotary Club on Friday, April 4 at 12:00 noon at the Champions Club. The title is "Bitcoin: The Future of Money, Dangerous or Both?" If you wish to attend, please let me know and I'll get you in as a guest. It's a good lunch and you'll get to see me try to explain the world of digital currencies in 15 minutes or less. If you can't make it, I'll be trying again at our next meetup on April 17. www.omahawestrotary.org
