Bitcoin Meetup | Pink Bamboo

Great meetup last night at Pink Bamboo. The staff was very friendly and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was excellent, and there were new people in attendance (again!). We had 7 total this time, including a nurse and her mom who just got into bitcoin through a friend at work, and they’re both excited to hold multiple cryptocurrencies, and have the opportunity to spend them around Portsmouth! One guy in attendance wanted to connect knowledgeable bitcoiners with those seeking expertise through a new online business he started, based in Portsmouth. Exciting new developments this […]

Bitcoin Meetup | The Rosa

The bitcoin meetup at the Rosa last night was amazing. 10 people got together at the restaurant for dinner and drinks. We set up bitcoin wallets, talked about trading cryptocurrencies, strategies for using bots on exchanges, where to get bitcoins, and how to get them securely off 3rd party crypto banks like Coinbase. People ranged in age from about 25-60. About half the people attending were joining up for the first time. The food was excellent and plentiful, and the service was stellar and friendly. The server handled a growing table with a smile, and the manager came over several […]

Bitcoin Meetup | Durbar Square

Several new people attended this meetup — including a local business owner looking to accept bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at his stores and a teenager who receives bitcoin for his allowance! The food at this Himalayan restaurant was SPICY and they accommodated our large group with a smile. We were disappointed that they didn’t take our crypto, though, since they had indicated a few days before that they would. We were left figuring out a large bill instead of split checks and we had to handle it with cash and multiple cards, but ultimately we figured out the best way […]

Bitcoin Meetup | Martingale Wharf

This meetup was incredible! A few guests came from out of the country to attend: one from Maine and two from Rhode Island. We talked about what to do with Bitcoin Cash (ahem, “Bitcoin Trash”), what wallets people are using to claim it, what exchanges to use to turn it into something useful (ahem, Dash, Ethereum, Monero — some people even still like Bitcoin). Dinner was great — nice and slow with lots of time to talk and meet different people. The service was excellent, of course, as to be expected at a great restaurant like Martingale Wharf. The staff […]

Bitcoin Meetup | Lazy Jack’s

Yesterday’s meetup went from good to great. A few of us got together at Lazy Jack’s and had drinks and a light lunch on the decks. One of the attendees set up his first bitcoin wallet. I sent him a dollar so he could see how it works. One person who was new to bitcoin this month noticed when he opened his wallet that the value of his bitcoin had increased by 15%. He was pleasantly surprised. They were relatively new and asked a lot of great questions: “What gives it value?” “What makes you feel secure using it?” “Can’t […]

Bitcoin Meetup | Oar House

Last night’s bitcoin meetup was awesome. There were 12 people — the largest one yet! All different ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. There were a lot of Free Staters at this one — they were in town visiting the Bitcoin Shoppe and stayed to attend the meetup afterwards. Some conversation topics included: “What are blockchains?” “What are miners?” “Who are nodes?” “What’s a masternode?” “Who decides who the nodes and miners are? Are they voted in?” “How do hardware wallets work?” “Is it more worth it to mine coins or just buy and hold?” “What’s the difference between Bitcoin and […]
