We are a team of editors and we have put together a news outlet for cryptocurrency in Romania in 2015. We've been growing ever since and made connections with some great people in the industry.
I don't know if people in the international community realize how cool the Romanian community is, both the users and the entrepreneurs. Bitcoin is catching on here and we're planning to support this growth.
Just a quick review
- There are low prices on energy here, and many green energy plants that have no place to sell the electricity they produce. We are working on educating them and we hope to see some results this year.
- I personally know of 6 programmers that play nice with blockchain, but in general Romania is teeming with mature programmers. I think it was a trend among people in my generation where they all flocked to this field. They are in the goldielock zone, in their 30s, with plenty of experience on board.
- Romanians don't get along well with banks, for good reason (there's an entire history here I'm not getting into right now)
- Romania is part of the European Union. That makes it a great place to obtain financing for IT projects and it's a good jurisdiction from many points of view to start a business.
- We got to know some amazing professionals in the field and we can point you towards great speakers with unique points of view if you're preparing bitcoin/blockchain-related events.

I wanted to let everyone know that we want to offer anyone interested to open businesses here some support and a quick bump in getting to know the area. For an ordinary effort, we can (and will) offer our help for free. We will probably charge some consultancy fee sometimes in the future, if there's a lot of work involved.

Feel free to drop us a PM if you are interested in an extended talk.

It was my first time reading that bitcoin has already reached Romania. And I salute your efforts in teaching the people in that area about bitcoin and the whole cryotocurrency market. Aside from that teaching people technicalities about blockchain was the most cooler part. I hope there are also some group who will train Filipinos like you do in Romania.

I would like to do some referring to Romanian btc gambling players, but I need a translator for my site, not hiring yet as I need more initial funds to do so. I will look into it the future.

I would like to do some referring to Romanian btc gambling players
I will look into it.
From the top of my head, slot machines and poker are the most popular in Romania, followed by dice games. (slot machines are endearingly called pacanele, some of the players like them so much they don't even say they are going to the casino, they say they're going to pacanele, if that's any proof)
Backgammon tournaments have been popular too, but I don't know of any that have stakes. I will ask around.
Romanians look for provable fairness on a site, there are ample discussions in the community on that and they exchange information on which one is better or not. They go in for high-stakes, like mostly everyone i suppose, and make no mistake, some of them are really good at poker and read on tactics.
What else? In terms of bitcoin betting, I think one of the top three has been bitcasino last year, but I can't tell you that for sure.
Sport bets are sought also. In that area, a large portion of the market is taken by local, carbon-world cafes where they can bet their money and meet with their friends. Sportsbets is probably one of the popular online to go places, but that's not based on a survey or anything, I just heard it mentioned more than other sites.
So...yea, gambling is a problem in Romania, there are social campaigns for people who have a real problem because of it...this is why it makes me feel weird to say that yes, there is a market.
Stay fair or the news that you didn't do right by a customer will spread like wildfire and try to curb their losses because the more of an issue it becomes the more attention casinos will get from authorities.

Wink why don't you start one yourself?
we thought it would be hard when we first started, it's actually quite rewarding and you get to make some quality networking.

Besides the low energy prices gaff [energy prices are quite high - 12+ cents], I think your post is legit.  Lots of talented Romanians, especially coders/hackers.  Finding people you can trust may be a challenge but definitely worth trying.

Where are you guys located?

Hello brother
Well, yes, electricity prices are high, BUT, talking to a friend of mine I've identified something that sounds pretty cool to me. He lives in Tulcea, the south part of Romania where there's a lot of wind generated power. Investors flocked to EU funding there, got their businesses in place, set up wind energy turbines and...realized that nobody would buy electricity from them and the competition for green certificates works the other way around - they have to lower the price bar to get rid of them.
The system is not yet in place to get energy providers to prioritize green energy consumption. By the way our government and bureaucracy works, we may see the same situation 5 years from now, just as it is. Investments in that area are dwindling and many plants are just turned off, because...why generate the power if you can't sell it and store enough of it, right?
I personally am thinking of brokering a deal for someone to plant a mining facility there and partner up with someone who owns a turbine. I don't know how that would work, we're talking about old businessmen here, who don't give a rat's ass about bitcoin and are afraid of regulations. Romania will probably be the last to make any kind of regulations on bitcoin because the legislative is slow, not because they are not interested on taxing everything they can.
Again, I don't know how that could pan out, in my head (over obsessing about bitcoin) it sounds really good.
I'm just leaving this here for your information and if anyone wants to participate in the brainstorming, that's cool. Also, if anyone gets this to homebase, they owe me a drink when they make the deal. I swear it's a Romanian tradition, it's called aldămaș

Also, I'm from Brasov, Transilvania (center of the country, can't miss it)

I've been looking for cheap juice in Romania but couldn't find it.  I'm the southern part of Romania right now but in the opposite end of Tulcea, in Severin.  But Romania is small compared to traveling accross the great US. 

I'm curious what kind of deal (cost-wise) could actually be worked out for a long term deal, always wanted to mine me some coins.  Smiley

Brasov is nice, hoping to get my kids out there to ski in Poiana before the snow melts.  Good luck!

You won't have much luck with gambling, there are all sorts of gambling places on nearly every street.  Quite tragic I think; I can't believe it's legal.

What is unusual in that thing that bitcoin used in Romania too?! It's not some closed country or something like that. I would be surprised to hear more that bitcoin get used in North Korea. Grin

Not unusual at all.  A lot of educated and tech savvy people in Romania.  It used to be a closed country for some 44 years when the hardline communists ran the place [into the ground].  The communists now have roses 🌹 as their symbol so they've changed their ways and besides, they're too busy stealing to do anything else. 

Romania is a good springboard for Bitcoin/Crypto, both, eastward and westward.  lol

If you can provide a good hosting with free electricity and a 10% maximum fee for your hosting then i'm all for it, but how can we deal with trust here, escrow will not work in this case

because you need money to buy the stuff to build a rig, and the rig itself can not be escrowed

I think you are overcomplicating things. You make an S.A company (add the electricity provider as a partner) while retaining the rights to the equipment yourself. I don t exactly know how to explain it, I don t know the juridical terms in English. I think a notarized agreement should work, or it can be stipulated when you choose the type of company (SA. SRL etc)
It can be quite straightforward

I'm not sure what he's asking either by trust.  The issue might be that as a non-national even a notarized contract could be broken or he might get robbed.  I too would have some concerns going into a foreign country where corruption is fairly rampant.

Congratulations, this is laudable and I appreciate people who have taken up such encouraging projects with their own resources. It's impressive and I will urge you to keep it up and let's help bring a lot of people into the Bitcoin world.
