CoinFest Debrief And Conference Organisation


Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 7:30 till 9:30+



The White Swan

276, Bradford St, Digbeth, West Midlands, B12 0QY, Birmingham



Behind The Irish Centre and Digbeth Coach Station



* A debrief session on the groups recent visit to Coinfest in Manchester which was very good.

* A discussion on creating a Bitcoin conference in Birmingham, which we clearly need.

* A bit of a chat about where bitcoin is going, and what the future might hold - particularly about the block size debate and what effect (if any) this might have on price, protocol and mining. I will be charging for this Meetup but if you want to come without paying that is cool as this is just a technical issue.

Forking Bitcoin - Is This Finally Armageddon?


Thursday, July 20, 2017
8:00 PM to 10:00

The White Swan
276, Bradford St, Digbeth, West Midlands, B12 0QY, Birmingham


Segregated Witness has become very controversial. Due to the UASF the 1st of August 2017 will either be the day that makes Bitcoin go over ground or become the spawn of the devil in which a group of investors take over Bitcoin and everything associated.

So this meetup is an analysis by us to find out what may happen and how we as users can legislate for it's impact.

Forking Bitcoin - Is It Safe?


Thursday, August 10, 2017
8:00 PM to 10:00 PM


The White Swan

276, Bradford St, Digbeth, West Midlands, B12 0QY, Birmingham.



We will be looking the situation to see if August 1st hoopla was what it was.

Will it be confusing or enlightening, socially acceptable or an economic pariah equivalent to the Lehman's Day 2008?

Also, there will be updates about #BitBrum conference 2017.
