**** Please note: The original date of this meetup has changed to Tuesday April 16 - Future events will be on the third Wednesday of the month ****

This event will be sponsored by Zebpay. All meetup attendees will receive a free drink from the bar! Zebpay will soon be launching their cryptocurrency exchange in Australia and it promises to be the first to integrate the lightning network into an exchange platform.

Come and join our monthly meetup at Harpoon Harry's - a popular Cuban themed bar publico. At this event:

Tim Dargavel joins us from Bitcoin Brisbane where he first gave his talk on the Lightning Network. It was so well received that we are very pleased that he has agreed to travel to Sydney and present it to us.

Tim has spent many decades working in and providing enterprise-scale Information Technology services and this has given him a deep appreciation and understanding of the principles and technology involved in Bitcoin. https://au.linkedin.com/in/timdargavel

Our second bonus presentation will be from Sandeep Khurna who has come from Melbourne to be with us and, in keeping with the theme of the evening, will explain how the Lightning Network will be a feature of Zebpay's new cryptocurrency exchange when they launch in Australia. This presentation will include a live conference with the Zebpay development team in Singapore.

Come and learn about and discuss how Bitcoin will scale sustainably, to meet the needs of global adoption as a payment network with the use of a second layer, the Lightning Network, that obviates the need to distribute and store in Bitcoin's blockchain every transaction performed on the network.

This is the technology that will make many of the alternate cryptocurrencies that sprung up in response to the capacity limitations that Bitcoin reached, irrelevant.


At Hotel Harry you will be able to have food & drink in pleasant surroundings before we get going with short talks by industry experts, soapbox talks, and Q&A between the audience and the speakers, as well as the chance to discuss between attendees and form discussion groups.

We'll be in a reserved area upstairs on LEVEL 1 with wheelchair access via a lift. Just ask a staff member on arrival.
RSVP is required as seating is limited. Please remember to cancel if you can't make it along.
