Bitcoin Cash Meetups See Worldwide Growth
There are a lot of ways people can learn and support blockchain technology and cryptocurrency solutions. Some people research the subject of bitcoin and only take it so far by reading about digital currencies, and maybe participating in online forums. Then other individuals looking for a more ‘hands-on’ approach attend bitcoin-focused conferences, and meetups. These days as bitcoin cash support grows many people across the globe are organizing or attending BCH-centric meetups. Lots of individuals use the website Meetup, a group-organizing platform for a variety of interests and hobbies including cryptocurrencies.
Since the inception of bitcoin cash, individuals started utilizing the Meetup platform to form BCH groups that meet on a regular schedule. Now there is a vast quantity of BCH groups meeting regularly in regions such as San Francisco, Tokyo, Boston, Seoul, London, Amsterdam, Nigeria, Kenya, Hong Kong, Toronto, Seattle, Orange County, Brazil, Malaysia, Helsinki, Beijing, Cancun, Sweden, and many more. Further, there are BCH-focused organizations like the nonprofit Bitcoin Cash Fund that helps organizers bootstrap BCH meetups worldwide.
The Bitcoin Cash Fund, @BCHMeetups, and Other Organizations Help Spread More BCH Meetups
The Bitcoin Cash Fund is a nonprofit dedicated to spreading BCH adoption on a global level as a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system,” as Satoshi Nakamoto intended. The fund sponsors another group called @BCHMeetups who can be followed on Twitter. The Twitter handle publishes posts on bitcoin cash meetups taking place in many different countries. Moreover, the group shares information on where individuals can find meetups in their area and it publishes pictures and stories from events that have already happened.
