We are happy to invite you to our next meetup to celebrate the official launch of Bitsquare!

Manfred Karrer, founder and developer of Bitsquare ( will explain why a decentralized Bitcoin exchange is needed and how to build it.

• Focus on the political and conceptual aspects of a decentralized exchange

• Short demo of the software.

• Explore further possible utilizations of the blockchain technology like DAOs (Decentralized autonomous organizations).

Key topics:

• Why is decentralization needed for a privacy protecting Bitcoin-Fiat exchange which does not require registration (no KYC/AML)

• How to build a decentralized exchange (and how to make it secure)

• Which features of Bitcoin make it possible (MultiSig, atomic transaction solves "who pays first" problem,...)

• How Bitsquare protects privacy (P2P network over Tor hidden services)

• Why Bitsquare is on the path to a DAO model with decentralized ownership, and not built as a startup

Be one of the first to beta-test this new disruptive application, which has been called “Bitcoin’s missing link” (
