Something crossed my mind recently, especially after reading Welsh's topic regarding collectible coins; I'll explain below.

Would anyone be interested into celebrating the 15th anniversary of the forum by a real world meeting, held in Arnhem?

I don't know how many forum users know each other in real life, but I think only a few. Besides, I also think that many would like to know each other, or to get to know the elders here. This could be a nice chance!

Why I suggested Arnhem? Because this city proclaimed that it is the world’s most Bitcoin-friendly city and it wants "to demonstrate there is an alternative for the current financial system by creating a bitcoin economy".
Other reasons for thinking about Arnhem: the city is beautiful and there are many merchants accepting Bitcoin. Furthermore, this city already held an important Bitcoin event in the past: The Future of Bitcoin conference, in 2017.

Now what's the connection with Welsh's topic: he mentioned at some point that he started to think about the respective coins in February 2018, but, apparently, it was already late, in order to have them on November 22nd. So I imagined that if 9 months weren't enough for obtaining the coins, most likely, for organizing such event it would take much more time. Even years.

That's why I wrote this suggestion now, almost 5 years prior the date of November 22nd, 2024.

What do you think about this? would anyone be interested in a meetup of this kind?

All good, so far we are two already Smiley If nobody else is interested, we'll do it together Smiley

It seems this section of the forum isn't visited by many members. I posted this topic 1 week ago, but it has only 16 views so far, therefore I'm thinking that Meetups section may not be the best choice for posting this. But let's see what happens...we still have 4 years and 11 months ahead Smiley

About the weather, I don't think there are reasons to worry. Weather is soft in Holland during the entire year - not too hot during summer and not too cold during winter. Today, for example, temperature in Arnhem is 9 Celsius degrees.

Good initiative, and I think it would be really nice to celebrate 15 years of the forum this way. I recently found out about Arnhem and their friendly attitude towards Bitcoin, and it seems to me that the location is pretty well chosen. I'm personally interested in something like this, but 5 years is a really long period, it's hard to say what will happen by then.

I agree that this board is very poorly visited, but I'm not sure which place would be more appropriate for a thread like this.

Hehe, then we are 3 so far Smiley It's a good start. Let's hope that in time the number will increase. There are still 4 years and 10 months left.

I'm glad that two people think it is a good initiative Smiley
