Arnhem Bitcoincity is one of the most compelling digital currency initiatives taking place in Europe these days. Getting consumers to buy and spend Bitcoin seems to be working well in this region. On May 28th, the team of Arnhem Bitcoincity will celebrate the two-year anniversary of this initiative with a special event.
It is hard to imagine the Arnhem Bitcoincity initiative has been around for nearly two full years already, especially when considering very few people thought this project had any chance of success in the long run. But as it turns out, this has been one of the most popular Bitcoin initiatives all across Europe in recent times.
Keeping in mind how over 100 merchants have signed up for the Arnhem Bitcoincity initiative, there is no denying this project has been incredibly successful over the course of two years. To celebrate this joyous occasion, there will be a special event taking place on May 28th, which will be extended to May 29th as well for those who want to explore the city the next day.
Things will kick off with a small conference in the Arnhem city center on May 28th, which will run from 1 PM until 6 PM. Afterward, there will be a dinner at one of the many restaurants in the city accepting Bitcoin payments, which will also give enthusiasts a chance to explore the possibilities of digital currency payments. Last but not least, there will be a meetup / party starting at 8 PM until the early morning hours.
During the mini-conference, various speakers will tell the attendees more about digital currency and distributed ledgers. Among the speakers are Monero developer Riccardo Spagni, Bitcoin developer Peter Todd, and Bitsquare Founder Manfred Karrer. More names will be added to this list over the next few weeks, so make sure to keep an eye on the event website.
Events like these would not be possible without some prominent sponsors, including Bitonic, BitKassa, Anycoin Direct, and Breadwallet. Do keep in mind attending the presentations during this event is not free of charge – early bird tickets are still available – and the number of available tickets is limited. More importantly, tickets can be purchased with Bitcoin.
