Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here.

You mentioned badges, keytags... but you did not mention what everyone is using everyday - Shirts. I would like to see a Bitcoin related shirts being giveaway. I recently saw a Bitcointalk thread about Bitcoin T Shirt. Maybe you can contact him or her (or other desginer) to sponsor the shirts to be given away.

I hope your upcoming CoinFest UK 2016 will be a successful one. Smiley.

I am making plans for CoinFest UK in 2016 and am looking for good giveaway items like: Bitcoin badges, keytags, stickers, printed items etc.

Does anyone have any links to giveaway goods like these they would like to see at a Bitcoin / Crypto event?

How about if you print and give out paper wallets with a few satoshis in 'em?

Good idea! Maybe custom CoinFest styled paper wallets Smiley

I was thinking T-Shirts - I am currently looking for someone to produce a custom run for me (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1156266) but not found one yet. I could get some online for the event as these would probably just have the CoinFest UK logo and BTC logo.

Thanks!

At CoinFest Colombia 2015, they made blockchain ID cards and used them as attendee cards. You could scan the QR code and see stuff about them.

I think he was registering them at the event itself. I'll ask--he can email you details, if you want.

I was thinking a good idea may be to list all the UK businesses that accept Bitcoin, to give visitors the idea of the scope of people who accept Bitcoin.

It could document address, web address, if they are online or a physical shop.

USB sticks with a wallet pre-installed. Everybody loves USB sticks, will draw a lot of attention. May be a little expensive though.

I would like to see some of those Stress balls ---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stress_ball with " Mark Karpelès testicles " printed on it... but make sure to make it tiny.  Roll Eyes

Or a T-Shirt or two, with the following printed on it... " I am Satoshi " or " BitCoin CEO "  

I hope all this fork fuckery will be sorted out by then... We need a CoinFest with a bit of Oemf! ....Good luck with the arrangements.. See you there.  Grin

Thanks to Batesresearch for helping us with this event, and for hosting the server for our coin explorer and pool Cheesy

He has been a very consistent supporter of gamecredits, and whenever the server has had an issue, regardless of whether or not my bumbling caused it, he's been johnny on the spot to fix it. His servers are very good, and he's a great guy.

Buy Bitcoins with Paypal, Credit card, or other methods. Send me a PM or a text to 208-451-2665.

You could give away paper wallets. The Chinese gave away paper wallets in red envelopes one New Year and it was a big success. I like the idea of thumb drives that was mentioned earlier too. You can get a bulk order printed with whatever you want on them fairly cheaply. The more you buy, the cheaper they are. People could import their paper wallets into portable wallets stored on the thumb drives.

I looked into branded thumb drives for an idea once upon a time. Costs would add up pretty rapidly. Paper wallets get the job done, can be more creative and cost piddling amounts.

Thanks guys for your support and feedback!

Paper wallets are on my list and will be looking for a designer in the coming months to put some CoinfestUK wallet designs together.

I have to say the GMC community are one of the best I have worked with and are very dedicated, you guys seem to have a real passion and this is definitely what the crypto world needs more of let alone the real world

I am planning to have some PCs set up ready for visitors to play TurboCharged, I think people will be drawn to the crypto/game bond that it creates.

You're welcome; I have to come up with content for my series, so it might as well be about a CoinFest UK sponsor. Smiley

If you're interested in sponsoring any other cities or CoinFest Global (cost for Global is currently 1 BTC), just send me a private message. I run a pretty decent PR machine and can help bring publicity in various ways.

I will accept royalties on every ball, if you like it that much... nah just joking... just glad you liked the idea. I think there is a bunch of people who would like to have a firm grip

on his egg sack...  Roll Eyes If you decide to implement the idea, please return to this thread and share some photo's with us, or place some online for us to buy.

Just make sure, no royalties goes towards Mark's pockets... he has enough of our Bitcoins already.  Angry

I will accept royalties on every ball, if you like it that much... nah just joking... just glad you liked the idea. I think there is a bunch of people who would like to have a firm grip

on his egg sack...  Roll Eyes If you decide to implement the idea, please return to this thread and share some photo's with us, or place some online for us to buy.

Just make sure, no royalties goes towards Mark's pockets... he has enough of our Bitcoins already.  Angry

lol - I have nicknamed them stressticles! We will definitely share the final product with you and hopefully have some left over to giveaway.

No royalties at all will go to Mark!

We've been thinking of who we advertise too for our CoinFest event.

Of course we will advertise to the bitcoin and altcoin communities via forums, social media etc but we understand several groups of IT professionals / technical minded people are interested in attending so we are thinking of opening the event each day with a talk or slideshow on what bitcoin/cryptocurrencies are, positives / negatives of them and current / future applications.

We will work on the slideshow but aim to have someone to discuss this properly with a talk, what do you reckon we should include in the talk / slideshow?

When is it and where are you looking to hold it? There is quite a swell of Bitcoin related investment and know-how in the UK, I think the UK was actually ahead of the curve when it comes to the progression of Bitcoin.

Why so far North anyway? Why not down south around London where people are?

The event will be on the 8th and 9th of April 2016 we are currently in final discussions with a few venues in Manchester. Definitely we have good development but I hope we keep it up.

There are many people up North aswell! London host a wide range of events so its time Manchester had some of its own. Manchester is the second largest urban area in the United Kingdom so its about time people come to us aswell.

 Cheesy I just think Manchester needs to be added to the world of crypto as much as London.

George Osborne supposedly re-emphasised his desire for London to be a world leader in both FinTech and digital currencies. Why London why not the UK

Nice to see more things happening with this and also based in Manchester. Any location confirmed or where will be held as of yet as am Manchester based maybe get something put together or get some promoting done to expose the event as I will have time on my hands in the coming months by the looks of it. And with this being mid next year I could look at getting some flyers and other stuff priced up to get some handed out across parts of Manchester town. Need more events like this and to have something that is maybe monthly and eventually something solid that can promote and make more and more people aware of Bitcoin as Manchester is a massive growing and up coming place.

Does the print ship for flyers take Bitcoin? Tongue You should definitely have more events like this in Manchester, but CoinFest only occurs once a year so as to ensure that as many cities around the world celebrate at the same time as possible.

Well I can accept bitcoin to get stuff printed is not a problem if you are looking for some to be printed off with designs. Rough cost is about £10 to £15 per 1,000 flyers done depending on design, quality and content.

Hey pal, thanks for the message. Yes we have MadLab on our side as a venue but I am just sourcing a back up venue in case we need one.

Got people scheduled to travel from all over the world including Africa and the USA to speak at the event but details will be released in the new year at the same time tickets will be available (Of course these are free of charge)

MadLab is actually where Bitcoin Machester has been held at in the past, We will be producing maps for visitors (Which will be available on the site) and show the local places to eat and train stations etc

I am making plans for CoinFest UK in 2016 and am looking for good giveaway items like: Bitcoin badges, keytags, stickers, printed items etc.

Does anyone have any links to giveaway goods like these they would like to see at a Bitcoin / Crypto event?

How about if you print and give out paper wallets with a few satoshis in 'em?
i think more than a few Wink
but this is a very good idea for giveaway!!

Nice and not sure what happened to bitcoinmanchester if their still doing their bit or sort of slowed down as not many went to the meetings and am ure things slown down and come to a halt unless am missing something out that their still running but a lot quieter as don't generally hear much of em  at the moment. If they have stopped maybe you should take over their monthly slot and have something that is sorted every month or so. Still got my eye set on the coinfest tho will look forward to it:)

Everyone does love free. Even to come to the event and not get charged like many others do is a fricking joke. Yeah ok I understand and get that they are fees for reasons but they don't outweigh the cost on some of them and you still got everything else to pay for. Its more like everyone paying for the event than them hosting it and making it cheap, Hence why no one ends up turning up. Keep it free or small and you got a winner.

A snippet:

"Another CoinFest event is set to take place and spread the Bitcoin influence further. This time around, the stage for the much-celebrated gathering of Bitcoin users, entrepreneurs, and game changers finds its way into the rich industrial heritage in the Northern Quarter of Manchester."

Nice too see this happening at Madlab. Not sure what has happened to bitcoinmanchester that use to host their once a month. I know they had a get together in DEC for Christmas meet  up but seems things slowing down and not many attending the meetings maybe needs more awareness. I will be sure to be calling down to the coin fest in April. Any times of when the meeting and get together will start from am maybe guessing early noon or round tea time when everyone home from work? Any rules on Vaping in MadLabs?

Hi crazyearner

I'm one of the organisers of Bitcoin Manchester, maxsan is the other. (He has a profile on here, but like me, doesn't follow this forum any more.)

You are right, we did have a meetup in December, here is our announcement. Jonny Bitcoin was talking about BitShares and we had cake Cheesy  We put up some photos on our Meetup.com event (this is the first of our events we've used Meetup for).

The biggest obstacle to regular meetups is organising speakers. We've had some good ones in the recent past, including Judith Aldridge of Manchester University talking about Silk Road and darknet markets, and Gulnar Hasnain of the Green Party talking about Bitcoin in politics.  We are limited by the number of potential speakers in (or able to travel to) Manchester. What partly compounds the problem is that I am currently living in Poland, and Max is currently in Glasgow, which makes coming back to run events much more difficult, and unfortunately rules out us filling in when we have no speaker due to the time and cost involved.

In short, we're doing the best we can given our constraints. If you have any ideas for sessions we could run (topics, speakers, etc), please let us know! We can be reached at hello@bitcoinmanchester.org.uk.

I know they had a get together in DEC for Christmas meet  up but seems things slowing down and not many attending the meetings maybe needs more awareness. I will be sure to be calling down to the coin fest in April. Any times of when the meeting and get together will start from am maybe guessing early noon or round tea time when everyone home from work? Any rules on Vaping in MadLabs?

Hey, Crazyearner

Thanks for the post. I've seen that Ash has posted so I'll leave that point, Thanks Ash.

So the events will run all day from morning until 5/6 and the same times on the Saturday.

I've asked Madlabs about vaping and they have said they have no strict policy against the use and will leave it up to me as the Organiser to decide (I have no opposition by the way)

Hi crazyearner

I'm one of the organisers of Bitcoin Manchester, maxsan is the other. (He has a profile on here, but like me, doesn't follow this forum any more.)

You are right, we did have a meetup in December, here is our announcement. Jonny Bitcoin was talking about BitShares and we had cake Cheesy  We put up some photos on our Meetup.com event (this is the first of our events we've used Meetup for).

The biggest obstacle to regular meetups is organising speakers. We've had some good ones in the recent past, including Judith Aldridge of Manchester University talking about Silk Road and darknet markets, and Gulnar Hasnain of the Green Party talking about Bitcoin in politics.  We are limited by the number of potential speakers in (or able to travel to) Manchester. What partly compounds the problem is that I am currently living in Poland, and Max is currently in Glasgow, which makes coming back to run events much more difficult, and unfortunately rules out us filling in when we have no speaker due to the time and cost involved.

In short, we're doing the best we can given our constraints. If you have any ideas for sessions we could run (topics, speakers, etc), please let us know! We can be reached at hello@bitcoinmanchester.org.uk.


Thanks Ash, good to see you here.

Sounds good to me as some places do not understand the ruling on vaping ad harmless lol. No doubt I will be coming down for the event if I manage to get the time to call down and get their on time as work now am been pulled in for 6 day weeks now so plenty of overtime, if I do get the chance Ill call down on way home from work FRI/SAT depending on times. Look forward to meeting you their if I do get to it Smiley

Nice! It's good to keep things decentralized. Hosting one of the biggest events is a huge responsibility because you have to keep that in mind. It would be cool if we set up some kind of portal where UK attendees could look into other events via video feed... we tried this last year, but it was very experimental and resources were more limited. I think you can handle it!

^ Just want to correct the above! With our current funding we are only able to keep the venue open from 9am to 4pm, we would like to keep the event open late Friday night for everyone to be able to attend and to offer some more exciting activities at the event, so we are actively looking for more funding

We are hunt for speakers to discuss the below on the start of both days of our event. Although our event will be hosting a range of speakers and activates involved at a higher level than basics we expect some beginner users to attend and would like to give them some of the basics.

We are looking at creating a small basic step-by-step guide for beginners and we would like someone to discuss the below:

- Basics of bitcoin
- Basics of setting up a wallet
- Basics of sending / receiving
- Security of your wallet

Of course the above is in development but we would love your input.

Nice to see more things happening with this and also based in Manchester. Any location confirmed or where will be held as of yet as am Manchester based maybe get something put together or get some promoting done to expose the event as I will have time on my hands in the coming months by the looks of it. And with this being mid next year I could look at getting some flyers and other stuff priced up to get some handed out across parts of Manchester town. Need more events like this and to have something that is maybe monthly and eventually something solid that can promote and make more and more people aware of Bitcoin as Manchester is a massive growing and up coming place.
Does the print ship for flyers take Bitcoin? Tongue You should definitely have more events like this in Manchester, but CoinFest only occurs once a year so as to ensure that as many cities around the world celebrate at the same time as possible.

Well I can accept bitcoin to get stuff printed is not a problem if you are looking for some to be printed off with designs. Rough cost is about £10 to £15 per 1,000 flyers done depending on design, quality and content.

Hey,

@crazyearner, just coming back to the above re printing flyers, do you know any good designers who accept BTC? I'm trying to keep everything BTC based. I'll drop you a PM aswell.

Once I have the designs done, I'll go through you to get them printed.

Volunteers get to work with an enthusiastic team dedicated to making CoinFest UK the best it can be.

We are excited about the scratch cards we have had designed for CoinFestUK. We will have a range of them created for different cryptocurrency communities, each card has a unique QR with an encoded private key, the linked wallet has a random amount of coins in it.



^ The scratch panel is imposed for now until printing (Just to give you an idea)

The blue guy is a great touch from the OK community

Anyone any feedback on them?

Maybe get a message over to the ethereum team and see if some of them could come along as seems one of the biggest coins to come out and vastly growing and taking over a lot of the alts going. Everything else regarding event looking good so far. Maybe in the future to get some bigger events and venues and maybe something aranged for the summer like SeasonalCoinFest for events to go on trips round the globe and actually have holidays and events and meetups getting the crypto community together and meeting new people and having a damn good time.

We've talked about holding CoinFest more frequently, before, but it's just too much effort to pull that off on a global scale. Held annually, we guarantee more simultaneous events around the world, and allow the founder to rest during part of the year.

In other news, our newfound success in the UK earned us an article at IBTimes:  http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/free-decentralised-bitcoin-cryptocurrency-event-coinfest-hold-manchester-meeting-1546993

It might be an interesting and original idea if you could put together a sort of temporary art collection for the event - with enough pieces you could fill up a room with interesting objects. Things like the original newspaper quoted in the blockchain, certificates, posters, magazines, paintings and sculptures. It would help give more bulk to the event and help showcase what's in the UK.

Do you mean cryptocurrency focused material, like a (copy of course) of the Last Bitcoin Supper and a copy of the Times Newspaper from 3 January 2009?

If anyone can source this kind of stuff then that would be awesome, I have looked many times for a copy of the Times Newspaper from 3 January 2009 (For a reasonable price)!

Hey guys,

Unfortunately our live streaming company has advised us that they are pulling out of our streaming agreement (and other streaming agreements they have) so it doesn't look like our event will be filmed or live streamed.

If anyone could help us stream (or even just film the event) then let us know.

Thanks guys.

You can still do the International Hangout, though, right? Just requires a webcam and a projector

The guy thats making a docu of eMunie is pretty certain he can make it for both days, just waiting for a confirm that him and his team will be able to make the trip up.

So worst case, you'll be able to grab some footage from him.  He usually brings a couple of guys, so there should be plenty non-eMunie stuff too.

Failing that, there is another guy I know that I could probably get along to the event and do the filming.

Is this contest open only for coinfest attendees? If not, you could post it in games & rounds board for more exposure (perhaps limit it to the UK based members). So far there's only 1 person registered, which would be myself.

Hey,

Thanks for the feedback. Yes the competition is open to everyone (Even people not attending CoinFest). I think I thought of a good competition but probably not best how to promote it. I'll post (or anyone else can) in some other areas later.

Thanks again

Just a note on the below raffle items - The power supplies supplied with the Raspberry Pi's below had American plug power adapters with them so we have removed them from the packets and will hopefully be able to replace with UK adapters ready for the event Smiley



The DigitalCoin team are offering 3 Raspberry Pi 2 kits for our CoinFestUK raffle.

The full kit includes:

- Pi 2 board in a custom enclosure with fan
- 32GB SanDisk Ultra micro SD
- WiFi dongle
- Power supply
- HDMI cable

The guys have pre-installed Rokos onto the supplied SD cards and as an added bonus they have pre-loaded two of the Pis with 100DGC and one with 1000DGC!

Attendees of CoinFestUK will be entered into the raffle using their ticket raffle IDs automatically (Once they have registered for a ticket and this will be validated when they are scanned in to the event on the day), we are thinking of running 3 raffles (2 on the Friday and 1 on the Saturday)

Check these out


A big thanks goes to the DigitalCoin team for support CoinFestUK!

Uhg, American power plugs. We often have those kinds of problems at CoinFest. Like when we sent the Bitcoin ATM from Vancouver to Botswana, there was a firmware to make it accept South African rand

We work hard to promote Bitcoin adoption and the decentralization of society. You can support our efforts by donating BTC to 35wDNxFhDB6Ss8fgijUUpn2Yx6sggDgGqS

I bet that was a challenge! Hopefully I can get 3 power adapters in time!

Is it a giveaway for everyone on the net?
Well, you can make some kind of puzzle or a question. And anyone who knows the answer correctly the first time, there goes the winner.

Do the raffle. Or auction the Rasp Pi with proceedings going to some worthy project etc. And limit it to the UK, otherwise the shipping costs could ruin you.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Yes I would limit to the UK and a custom puzzle sounds like a good idea.

Thanks pawel7777, I know a few UK based charities that accept Bitcoin, do you know any?  I love the idea of giving to a worthy cause!

Thanks pawel7777, I know a few UK based charities that accept Bitcoin, do you know any?  I love the idea of giving to a worthy cause!

Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) seems a good one. According to them they're first major charity in the UK or Ireland to accept Bitcoin. They run a pilot Bitcoin donation program, so it's not available from the main 'donation' page, but you can see it here:

https://rnli.org/howtosupportus/donatenow/Pages/bitcoin.aspx

They have dedicated address, so it'll be easy to prove that the funds have been donated.

But it doesn't have to be UK charity, there are some worthy international ones, like BitGive: http://bitgivefoundation.org/

Or, if you want to do such auction, you could let the winner choose his favourite charity, providing it's registered and well known, not some website created overnight.

Great event. I was there on Saturday. Great presentations and speakers (and audience). A bit intimidating being around all those powerful brains and uber developers. Definitely a very inspiring event.
