Yesterday I attended the most likely first bitcoin meetup of more than 10 people in Chile. I would guess we were 60.

Some pictures:

We got a very nice intro to bitcoin and by far not all were convinced of bitcoin after the presentation. Most attendants were foreigners with maybe 5-10 actual Chileans, which is most likely because it was organized within the English-speaking incubator Startup Chile.

Many showed interest in turning this into a regular thing and I'm confident there will be hopefully more successful follow-up meetups.

Todo for the next meetup:
  • Invite media
  • Do a transaction on stage
  • Make sure they understand that you can own and send less than one bitcoin (Yes, 2 of the 10 people I talked to later were actually very surprised to hear that this works and I am not sure the other 8 had a clear idea of the divisibility as it was definitely explained in the intro.)
  • Bring promotional material (the material that I want to design and print since one year)

And here are some slides. Page 24ff is a nice explanation of why bitcoin is the way it is:

Chile is certainly beginning to look great, while the quality of life in "developed" countries quickly deteriorates the quality of life seems to be on the rise in Chile, and quite sharply.

I like to read the Sovergein Man occasionally, thought it would be a great start to anyone.
