Call it a just coincidence or take part in one of the world's most exciting global tech revolutions.

Tomorrow, the first Wednesday of the Month, there will (by last count) Bitcoin Meetings in the following 9 10 cities:

    Amsterdam BitcoinWednesday.com
    Sydney
    Munich
    Vancouver
    Pittsburgh
    Toronto
    Austin
    Paris
    Buenos Aires
    Cinncinnatti
    Las Vegas

    [/list]

    ... and add your city here.

    I'm posting this on the main board, because I think it's time to show worldwide solidarity and do whatever's needed to make this into a popular global movement.

    Recent market research http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/28/bitcoin-awareness-and-trust/?utm_content=bufferf9504&utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Buffer shows a quarter of U.S. consumers have heard of Bitcoin and the majority of them trust it. In some countries these numbers are even higher.

    Join us and help spread the word: First Wednesday of the month is Bitcoin Wednesday.

    The next Bitcoin Wednesday is August 7.

    Wednesday is an important day. It's the day Mt. Gox is in default on stopping outbound transfers in US dollars.

    The Amsterdam edition was big success.

    Interesting people and inspiring conversations in the cafe of Amsterdam's City Theater.  It will be an exciting time for Bitcoin in the Netherlands.

    Check out http://bitcoin.meetup.com/ to see if there are any groups in your area.

    Then check out LocalBitcoins.com for people buying/selling in your area.

    Reach out to all of them and see if they are interested in meeting up on Bitcoin Wednesday.

    When you get a meeting going, it's just socializing. We talk about the latest bitcoin news, projects we're working on, or more general stuff like politics, etc.
    Try and get a poster board and easel to put on your table or near your gathering spot so others around you know what you're doing - it helps awareness and you'll be surprised how many "outsiders" inquire and have "heard something about it" and want to  know more.

    Then when you get brave and motivated enough, you can entice merchants with your growing numbers and ask them to accept bitcoin in return for your patronage.

    It's GREAT fun!

    Good questions.

    What goes on at these events?

    You are limited only by your own imagination.  Based on what I've seen first hand, you can:

    * Socialize with other great people interested in Bitcoin: Newcomers, gurus and early pioneers, writers, entrepreneurs, economists, investors, activists, etc. Celebrities have been known to drop in on these events. Don't see someone you think should be there, just bring them along.

    * Learn more and teach others.

    * Buy, sell, barter.  Keep the coins circulating in the community.

    * Talk about how to spread Bitcoin to more people, more businesses.

    * Engage in fascinating conversations.

    * Demonstrate or pitch your latest Bitcoin project.

    * Hold presentations and debates.

    * Indulge in good food and drink.

    * Plot your next Bitcoin heist (just kidding).




    How do I organize one in my community?

    You can just do it.  Here are some tips.

    1. Find a location.  It helps if the meeting place is accessible and has WiFi.  They do not have to accept Bitcoin yet.  The next date for Bitcoin Wednesday is August 7.

    2. Add your city to the list -- at the end of this thread, or update the Bitcoin Wednesday wiki here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_Wednesday

    3. Invite local Bitcoin people.  You can find them on the regional section of this forum, on LocalBitcoins.com, on Reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/ on Meetup sites, on Facebook, on Twitter.

    4. Show up and have fun.
