Title: Block Reward Halving Parties Around the World
Post by: ben-abuya on November 25, 2012, 12:28:26 AM
I'm noticing some block halving parties popping up around the world on Wednesday, the estimated date of the drop to 25 btc per block. Let's list all the parties here in this thread. Maybe we could even do some live video feeds from all around the world as the block busts onto the scene!

Old thread from the previous halving, but since it has been resurrected using the dark arts of necromancy: We'll be having a huge party in Tel Aviv, Israel, on 7.7.2016.
