Communities und Meetups sind in der Bitcoin-Szene besonders wichtig. Denn es gibt hinter Bitcoin keine Firma, welche für Bitcoin Pressearbeit oder gar Lobbyarbeit macht. Bitcoin lebt von und mit der Community. Bitcoin Meeupts sind eine Anlaufstelle für alle, vom Anfänger bis zum Profi. Diese Treffen eigenen sich unter anderem auch, um Wissen oder gar Bitcoin selber in einer angenehmen Umgebung und Atmosphäre auszutauschen. Die Schweiz hat einige der besten Bitcoin-Programmierer, engagierte Bloggende und Enthusiasten, sowie einige der aktivsten Communities der Welt! Ich habe die Meetups für sie herausgesucht und hier ist die Liste:

Decentralization Meetup Zürich

What role could decentralized technologies play in the future of our society?

This meetup focuses on decentralization in all its different aspects.

The question above resides at the heart of Dezentrum.
Dezentrum acts as a hands-on think tank, hub, and enabler for a decentralized future. In the role as a co-founding party of the Blockchain Hub «Trust Square», the initiators work closely with academic partners as well as with companies from the private sector.
Presently the discourse about Blockchain is heavily dominated by the technology and financial industry. With its interdisciplinary approach, the Dezentrum is broadening the discourse by social sciences as well as humanistic and artistic disciplines. Co-producing studies, pilot projects and showcases, the Dezentrum actively participates in shaping the future of our society in the decentralized era.

Crypto Summit Zug

Crypto Summit Zug

Our little Crypto Valley which we founded back in 2015 with first movers such as Xapo, Ethereum and Bitcoin Suisse has grown up considerably. As the gospel of decentralization spreads through the world, it is no coincidence that Switzerland is becoming the epicenter of this movement. One of the most democratic, decentralized, open societies – what a wonderful home for Crypto!

Being one of the founders of Crypto Valley, I cherish the tradition of bringing people together. As meetups started to grow bigger and bigger and more people discovered the Crypto Valley, we started the first global blockchain conference in Switzerland.
