The local Bitcoin Meetup Group got together on July 24th for ‘something more formal’. Taking over the floor of the soon to be launched Alpha Beta Tech-Hub building on the edge of the city. The idea of the new quarterly
@bitcoinfocus event is to cover relevant ground that is informative to both newcomers to the Bitcoin space and the current project developers. The event also provided the usual fantastic networking opportunities. Many thanks to @coindesk, for providing cold beer and hot pizza. I overheard many people mentioning during the night is their leading source for digital currency news. The crowd, very multicultural, from hippy to city. Standing by the camera I could count many people taking long notes during all three presentations.
To kick things off, and for newcomers to the Bitcoin space, Darragh Browne presented the fundamental workings of the Bitcoin protocol, before moving on to the less obvious features and
potential use cases that have the power to take it way beyond being the speculative fad that the mainstream media would have us believe it to be. The presentation was followed by an interesting Q&A.
