It's about that time of year, again, where cryptocurrency enthusiasts around the world unite in celebration to remember the great teachings of Satoshi. For those who aren't in the know, CoinFest is an annual decentralized convention that occurs simultaneously around the world. Run by volunteers as a non-profit and funded by generous sponsors, it has always been free to attend and always will be. It also only holds crypto assets and occurs at venues that accept or support cryptocurrency (such as by accepting it for payments).
CoinFest Vancouver does something with blockchain gaming every year, as several of its volunteer organizers work for www.blockchaingaming.com. Last year, we had a 1-day convention near Olympic Village Station at the Beaumont Studios, a trendy space for artists and events that is now experimenting with cryptocurrency. The blockchain gaming industry has continued to thrive, so we're going to do it again, but this time bigger and better.
Vancouver's Bitcoin meetup is a space for people who share an interest in bitcoin or crypto-currencies to come together and share stories, ideas, or opportunities. Whether you are a neophyte or an "early adopter" you are likely to find someone who shares your ideas or is maybe even willing to challenge them.
We are open to any respectful people and ideas and encourage members to be open to new people and ideas. As this is also a financial technology, and many people are interested in its business and commercial applications, there may be people attending our events looking to do business or sell services or products related to bitcoin. You may also be a person looking to to business with others involved with bitcoin.
People are of course free to interact how they like. However we respectfully ask that you pay attention to the nature of the event you are attending as well as the attitudes of other attendees, and that you use discretion as necessary.
When conducting or discussing business with any other person you meet, you do so of your own volition and in no way does the "Vancouver Bitcoin Meetup" officially endorse any persons or associations attempting to conduct business or commercial activity at meetup events organized through this meetup group.
In all interactions with others at events for this meetup, all participants are expected to respect their fellow participants and Canadian laws while doing so.
And don't forget to enjoy yourself while we experience and enjoy this technological revolution!
