Who, among us, are coming to Chicago in the near future and will need taxi service? Moreover, who pledges to use the services provided by @ChicagoCabbie, paying the fare plus tip with Bitcoin?

In this post I will maintain a list of all those who state that they're coming to Chicago on business, for pleasure or simply to meet up with family and friends. Chicago Cabbie's (Rashid) hours are basically 4AM to 3PM. In your post, you don't have to state any particulars, but the more information you may provide would be most helpful in the formation of the list.

~Bruno~

ThE LiSt:

  • Bruno (Illinois resident, but would use for special events when parking is an issue)
  • altuin (coming soon--no other info provided)
  • bitcoinbitcoin113 (Chicago Resident)
  • the joint (Chicagoland Resident--Work/School)
  • anonymous5050 (Chicago Resident)
  • kjlimo (St. Patrick's Day visit)

I have a friend coming into Chicago from LA. He has some bitcoins, so I sent him a link to this thread.

Can you tell us anything else about this panel on Bitcoin you've mentioned below?

Unfortunately I can tell you it has been canceled. Or at least the organizer sent me an email stating that he was not able to put together a panel. The event, "TechWeek", will still happen and he said that if I wanted to create a bitcoin session on my own it would likely be included. It comes during a crunch time for me and I don't think I will have time to do a quality job of organizing. If any one is interested in trying to get a panel together however, I would help. I know a few peers there who would also be part of it.
Here is a link to the website.

Great! I will put you on the list. At the moment, Rashid's has not implemented Bitcoin as of this penning. He was under the weather last week, but I'll be putting a fire under his ass (an expression) soon, for I am The Bitcoin Guy. (somebody here's suppose to be working on my suit and cape)

What is this guys phone #?

I can PM you his number if you really want it. Mostly, he uses Twitter to hustle up his rides. There's a link to his website on his Twitter account that may also provide his number. I see no reason why he would keep it private, but I'm not sure. https://twitter.com/ChicagoCabbie

I'm still available for this and am in the city Tuesdays and Thursdays

Great, the joint. I put you on the list. I opt to not do it earlier until I read from personally. Didn't want to take it for granted.

Anybody else coming to Chicago soon?

On a related note, I was thinking about trying to approach the guys that work at the Mobil on the corner near my house to see if they would be interested in accepting Bitcoins.

It would be pretty sweet to pay for a cab ride back to my house with Bitcoins, because then the cabbie could get gas with them.

I will be in Chicago for St. Patty's day.

If we need to use a cab, I'd be up for trying this.

If you could post a video of how it works, so that I could show the people we're hanging out with how it will work.  That will increase my chances of talking people into it.

Good luck!  Please PM me once everything is setup and there's an app to download.  I can wait until early March, so that gives some time.

Coinbase for selling BTCs
Fold for spending BTCs
PM me with any questions on these sites/apps!  Happy to help!


or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.
