We want to be able to provide a free Bitcoin event for the masses without the prohibitive ticket prices which most similar conferences/events entail. A typical event usually have to charge high ticket prices due to the rental of the venue, but we're taking a different approach as the space already exists and open to the public. Many Bitcoin events around the world currently hosts Bitcoin companies and most of the time you can only spend your Bitcoins on mining hardware, but rarely do you see any local vendors selling food or local products for BTC. So, we are aiming for the following:

  • Create The First Community Driven Weekly Bitcoin Fair That Appeals To Large Audiences Across Demographics.
  • Encourage Vendors To Use Bitcoin As A Form Of Payment And Give The Bitcoin Community A Physical Place To Spend Their Bitcoins.
  • Brand Bitcoin In The Media As A Tangible Form Of Payment That Can Be Used Easily And Safely In Person.
  • Use sponsorship funds to grow the Bitcoin community by educating newcomers/vendors and organizing social events to spur innovation.

More Info and Sponsorship opportunities here:


Currently we have 2 ticket options. A Free Ticket is just to RSVP for the event without receiving a Goodie Bag. The other option is to receive the Goodie Bag with the RSVP:

- Nicely Designed Bitcoin Tote Bag
- A well crafted Bitcoin brochure for newbies
- Designed Bitcoin / Altcoin - Tshirt / Mug / Pens / Etc. (The usual stuff at conferences)
- Bitcoin / Dogecoin Inspired Pixel Art
- Bitcoin / Dogecoin Macaroon (made by the Macaroon Parlor)
- Designed Bitcoin Paper Wallets
- Bitcoin / Altcoin - Stickers
- This depends on the amount of funding we get to make this happen...

Goodie Bag Tickets are essentially free as in you would just have to share on facebook/twitter to reduce the price to $0. Limited quantity on the goodie bags! If you like to support us, you can just pay for the goodie bag ticket.

Why can't I pay in Bitcoin?
