Global Activities / Re: CoinFest 2017 Activity Ideas
« Last post by BatesResearch on January 13, 2017, 11:11:08 AM »
I do have an idea which may work. We could host a gaming session of certain Bitcoin games where CoinFest events play against each other.

We are arranging a UK server to be setup for a Bitcoin game and it would be awesome if we could all play against each other (and the winner wins Bitcoin in the game anyway)!

This year we are also planning mining education sessions following feeeback from attendees and multiple questions on how mining works and how people can get into it.

I really like this idea. It will also show/promote the fact that CoinFest is a global event happening around the same time.

This will really help some organisers focus on other areas of the event and we can build a list of vendors around the world who accept Bitcoin in local areas!

Global Activities / CoinFest Refreshment Grants
« Last post by sirwagginston on January 12, 2017, 09:20:33 AM »
One of the primary goals of CoinFest is to stimulate cryptocurrency adoption. Therefore, it makes sense that CoinFest Global should use its funds in a way that helps accomplish that.

With this in mind, I propose we set up a grant system wherein CoinFest Global pays food/drinks at local CoinFest events. The criteria shall be as follows:

  • The local event must meet all existing CoinFest criteria
  • The refreshment provider must directly accept Bitcoin

Whether or not an applicant meets the criteria shall be judged by the CoinFest multisig custodians who issue the funds. You have to trust them to some degree if you were too lazy to claim a private key, but they are obliged to fairly consider public opinion. Merit (How much publicity and attendees did you get?) and need (What adverse conditions hinder fundraising for you?) will probably be considered in determining the quantity of funds to be dispensed.

Global Activities / Re: CoinFest International Hangout 2017

That one's being covered by BlockTalk. It will basically be the same as last year, when the BlockTalk guy was the host, anyways.

Awesome! Thanks. Can you put me in touch with the BlockTalk people  ;D

Yeah, what about? I usually chat with him on Facebook; email works, too. We'll be sure to coordinate the Hangout with you, of course.

Just to delve into detail / timings etc (closer to the event) about the hangout, making sure we time it all right!

Good news, everyone: in addition to BlockTalk on the Saturday, the Crypto Show and Bitcoins and Gravy have also decided to host their shows during and in conjunction with CoinFest. We can give away Bitcoin prizes on all three. Crypto Show and Bitcoins and Gravy have no dates set, yet, but I'm guessing they'll be during the week. I'll also be going on both shows soon to spread the word about CoinFest and try to get more cities on board

I think now we're starting to look at a situation where the International Hangout is entirely third party/decentralized. There's no need for CoinFest to have its own central Hangout channel; in fact, it's in the spirit of free market competition to let anybody who wants to abide the CoinFest protocol to do it. Just like how anybody can host their own local event. CoinFest just brings it all together

Awesome news pal! If these don't fall on the UK dates, I'll be sure to promote them.

When you say there's no need for CoinFest to have its own central hangout channel does this effect the international hangout planned for April 7/8?
