Upcoming events (1)
PLEASE NOTE: there will be several CoinFest events in and around downtown Vancouver. Please wait for the full itinerary to be posted on EventChain. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's about that time of year, again, where cryptocurrency enthusiasts around the world unite in thanks and celebration. It's been a long, hard winter for us all, but now is the time to put our differences and troubles aside and remember the great teachings of Satoshi. For those who aren't in the know, CoinFest is an annual decentralized convention that occurs simultaneously around the world. Run by volunteers as a non-profit and funded by generous sponsors, it has always been free to attend and always will be. It also only holds crypto assets and occurs at venues that accept or support cryptocurrency (such as by accepting it for payments). Vancouver is the birthplace of CoinFest and participates every year. This year, we have a couple different events lined up with very different themes, and we encourage anyone to attend! Highlights will include: APRIL 3, 7 PM: a panel discussion on crypto bounties and innovations in the emerging gig economy, with experts from DCTRL, Gitcoin and Bounties Network APRIL 5, 7 PM: a panel discussion on the best methods of converting new users from fiat to cryptocurrency, hosted by Ed Yuen with experts from HoneyBadger, Coinsquare and BitNational APRIL 6, 10 AM: a blockchain gaming expo, put on by the team behind www.blockchaingaming.com.
