Technical Workshop: libbitcoin; Principles and Fallacies in Cryptoeconomics

Eric Voskuil, lead developer of the alternative Bitcoin implementation "libbitcoin", comes to Munich to talk about the project, giving us the opportunity to look into this toolkit for building Bitcoin applications.

Eric also publishes articles about risks, principles, and fallacies in cryptoeconomics that we will dive into. So there's plenty of material for a focused and critical discussion round.

Resilience in Bitcoin, Proof-of-Work, Energy Consumption

The Munich Security Conference is on, and like last year we cooperate with the https://pirate-secon.org/ counter-conference, being kindly hosted on location.

As always, our meetup takes place in the evening and is free to attend, but you're welcome to get tickets (€25,-) for the full conference that runs for the whole weekend.

The theme of the conference is "Resilience". Resilience is also one of the fundamental prerequisites for Bitcoin to function. No one party or interest group must be able to take over the system. We will be looking into how this is achieved, and perhaps what can be learned from it in a broader context.

Proof-of-work consensus aka Mining is certainly one of the cornerstones that enables the *Security* of the network. Lately though, articles have been making the rounds that Bitcoin requires as much energy as countries like Denmark, and that one Bitcoin transaction consumes as much energy as a family home in a week. Is that true? Is Bitcoin sustainable in a world afflicted with climate change, struggling to achieve CO2 neutrality? We will be trying to shed some light on this issue. Probably we'll have a pretty open-ended discussion round.

Target Audience: Everyone interested in the political, societal, and environmental aspects of Bitcoin and related technologies.

ICO Night: VC Perspectives

Due to popular request we will be looking at ICOs again, examining the state of the industry in 2018. We will focus especially on perspectives from a traditional VC viewpoint, aiming to reach a balanced conclusion at the end of the evening.

On the one hand, we have articles pointing out that most ICOs of 2017 have already failed. https://news.bitcoin.com/46-last-years-icos-failed-already/

On the other hand, more and more traditional startups are discovering this new way of funding, and are about to actively put it into practice. https://www.coindesk.com/ico-tokens-already-changing-traditional-startups/

The Lightning Network: Introduction and Deep-Dive

Christian Decker from Blockstream and the DLT staff from MainbornWolff will give us an introduction and deep-dive into the Lightning Network.

How should an internet-native money and cash look like? How to make it scale while remaining decentralized? How to achieve the capacity required to serve the daily transaction needs not only of every human on this planet, but also of the machines and automated processes of the future; that is, millions of transactions per second world-wide, with near-zero fees?

The Bitcoin community has been debating (to say the least) for the last 3 years, and even most of the harshest critics of the "small blockers" don't deny in principle that a so-called layer 2 is inevitable.

A blockchain fundamentally doesn't scale. It must run redundantly on thousands of computers world-wide in order to remain truly immutable and incorruptible. To chisel every single payment for a coffee into such a ledger system is thus far too heavy on resources.

Enter the Lightning Network. Turns out there is a way that Alice can be paid by Bob for a coffee without having to tell the world, while still being safe from double spending. How does that work? Tonight we will learn all about the clever solution that has been found for this problem.

Target Audience: We will have two parts. First we will address a general audience, later we will dive deeper into the matter, demonstrating how to set up and run a lightning node. We will probably also have an extended Q&A and discussion panel to talk about the future of scalability in blockchains, layer 2 solutions, the challenges, and potential further applications therein.

The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking

Economist and author Saifedean Ammous comes to Munich to talk about "The Bitcoin Standard", which is the title of his new book in which he examines various historical monetary systems, from seashells to the gold standard, in order to draw lessons relevant to Bitcoin.

Obviously, you'll have the opportunity to get your copy of the book signed in-person tonight! The book will be sold tonight too while stocks last.

We'll also have special guests from Venezuela, so we can learn first-hand about the situation in that country, and how crypto-currencies are being utilized there.

Target audience: Everyone interested in the macro-economic effects Bitcoin might have on the world in the near future.

⚡ Lightning Workshop: Incentivizing Mesh Networks + Be Your Own Fan with Matreon

The Lightning Network will continue to be one of the hottest topics in our space, so let's start a series of workshops.

Sjors Provoost, contributor to Bitcoin Core and c-lightning, and Jörg Hermsdorf from CONSERVE Blockchain-Service will instruct us today about setting up Lightning for specific use cases.

There can be never enough WiFi hotspots. Jörg will introduce his project in which he forked Freifunk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freifunk

Freifunk is meant to be free as in speech as well as free as in beer, but maybe a lot more people will set up routers if they can earn a few bits of crypto-coins lightning-streamed from our wallets?

Sjors will demonstrate how to set up Matreon, a self-hosted platform to receive recurring donations. https://btcmanager.com/matreon-may-soon-reward-creators-via-bitcoins-lightning-network/

We will actively set up a full node and lightning on AWS, pay ourselves and then take the money out again.

Please have an installed Bitcoin Core node synchronized to testnet ready on your laptops! https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin

Target Audience: Strongly technical. Developers, advanced Bitcoin followers, or mesh network enthusiasts.
