Bitcoin Nottingham Meetup 7pm Monday 20th March 2023

Bitcoin Meetup Field Report from Satoshi Nottingham for Monday 20th March 2023 at 19:00

What a fantastic venue we had for our March meetup at the Waterside Bar and Kitchen at Trent Bridge. Thanks to Tony the manager of the Waterside for hosting us in the private room and setting up the tables so we could all pretend we were at the Bitcoin Board Meeting or like the scene in the Bond movie Spectre were James infiltrates a meeting!

Jim commented how I like to start promptly as advertised, and I explained this is as a mark of respect to the people who made the effort to turn up on time or early, as they say there are varying degrees of early but late is late! Don’t worry if you do miss the start of a meetup, just slide on in and introduce yourself later, but we will start without you haha.

This meeting we trialled v0.0.1 of the new open source meetups running order that we are developing – get in touch if you want to help us collaborate on GitHub

We had a total of 16 at this meetup, slightly down on last month 25, maybe it is the reduced parking facilities at this venue, but I wonder how long it will be before my dream is realised and one of our meetups gets absolutely mobbed with hundreds of people, our max occupancy is 60 for this room so I look forward to breaching that milestone first!

Our winner of the Most Dedicated Bitcoin Tourist competition was Mohamed the founder of Bitcoin Coventry and I was glad to be discussing ideas for Meetup groups content creation.

We only had 1 new Bitcoin Lightning user who claimed the 10,000 sats digital walking around money, so be sure to tell your friends and family about the 10,000 free sats for any new Lightning wallet users, in years to come that could be $10,000 if bitcoin achieves dollar-sat parity!

Great to have the 60inch flat screen at this venue so we could show the fully open source Bitcoin Lightning auction in real time as it closed on the auction for the very last packet of Bitcoin Trading Cards to be sold from the primary market. This first series of cards has been hugely successful and very well received within the industry so congratulations to our group member who successfully out bid everyone else for this last remaining pack.

Great to hear the stories of how each member started learning about Bitcoin and where we’re all at! Thanks to Nind for sponsoring the pizza and we look forward to seeing you all again (plus guests) at the next bitcoin meetup on Friday 28th April 1900!

Bitcoin – Become the silent revolution!

Peace and love to all
