Pacific Northwest Bitcoin is a meetup group for people interested in digital, alternative and complementary currencies, as well as other decentralized or experimental monetary systems. We welcome people of all backgrounds and viewpoints. We are on a mission to create a bridge between the Bitcoin hubs along the west coast, from Vancouver to Silicon Valley and beyond. We want to extend the Bitcoin community beyond tech hotspots to grow and diversify the alternative finance ecosystem. We advocate a critical, holistic perspective on the nature of currency, decentralization, digital culture and structures of power within society. We aim to engage people in conversations about the nature of digital currencies like Bitcoin, and blockchain technology in general and encourage consideration of future innovation in the context of its broader impact on society.  

This group is also dedicated to helping showcase local tech and maker projects and recognizing community leaders for their efforts. We invite business owners, entrepreneurs, artists, activists, campaigners, monetary reformers, policy-makers, students, community organizers and investors to join us, whether or not they have a specific interest in digital currency.

Our meetings will be a great place to learn about new ideas, meet people to collaborate with, expand your perspective, have a constructive, friendly debate, ask questions or share knowledge, make new friends, build skills, learn basics, dive deep and network with local startups. Interested in trying out Bitcoin for the first time? Come say hi and our next event and we'll help you get rolling.

If you're interested in speaking or presenting at a future meetup, please fill out this form.
