What we're about

We're a group focused on all things Bitcoin. All experience levels welcome, whether you're new and curious or have been in the scene for years.

We meet regularly for casual discussions and presentations on topics like the protocol and software, economics, trading, storage techniques, investing, and mining.

Come out to meet, learn from, and share ideas with fellow Bitcoiners!

Note that we are not a "blockchain" or "cryptocurrency" group. There are plenty of those around OC. We're Bitcoiners here to talk Bitcoin.
