Cypherpunk Manifesto 30th Anniversary: a Bitcoin History Lesson

691 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE

📙 Atlanta BitDevs' reading groups are small sessions where we focus on a specific topic within Bitcoin development and help each other understand it through discussion.

This time, we are going to read a Cypherpunk's Manifesto by Eric Hughes. March 9 will mark the 30th anniversary of this document, so it's timely. This document is an easy read. While it's not about bitcoin, it will teach you about the cypherpunk movement and how this philosophy may have led to the development of bitcoin.

Ordinals: how to make NFTs on Bitcoin with (virtual) guest Casey Rodarmor

📙 Atlanta BitDevs' reading groups are small sessions where we focus on a specific topic within Bitcoin development and help each other understand it through discussion.

This time, we are going to read the Ordinal Theory Handbook! Ordinals are a technique for creating NFTs on the Bitcoin main chain. If reading tech docs isn't your jam, then just look at the ordinals explorer to see the inscriptions and artwork people are creating. We'll be joined by Casey Rodarmor, the creator of this concept! He's going to join us in the Discord video call!
