Purpose: BCH meetup organizers connect to share updates, ideas and strategies to accelerate Bitcoin Cash adoption.

AGENDA

1. Welcome

Attendees: Alex, Vikram, Romit, Alejandro, John, JZA, Monica, Mariano, Nurain


2. Organizer Updates - Success & Challenges/Covid

Philadelphia, USA: Masks no longer required in the area, hopeful in-person meetups will restart soon. Hosting a virtual meetup on June 19th. Plan to create a token for the virtual meetup and use dividends to demonstrate the tech to guests.

Cancun, Mexico: Participating in the LATAM meetups. Pitching new online businesses to accept BCH. Covid is changing the atmosphere for adoption.  This opens a new opportunity to focus on online/ecommerce adoption. Let’s get more BCH-powered platforms onboard! This is a much larger opportunity than traditional brick and mortar. Networking with technology groups to make contacts with established businesses.

Yola, Nigeria: Had some collaborations with educational platforms (e.g., Bitkova). Creating local content in English (and the native language) and posting to youtube.  Will launch new website next week.  Plans to start the merchant adoption process this week.

Bangalore, India: Meetups continue. The lockdown was extended through June 21. Waiting to get back to in-person meetups soon. Join our group on meetup.com for alerts on our next in-person meetup. Look for the new update on Zapit.io wallet which will offer a new peer-to-peer version of local bitcoin (built into the wallet). Wallet is available on Android now and a new version will be coming out soon.  iOS is coming soon.

Nueva Esparta, Venezuela: Hosting meetups regularly and in-person when possible. Will host a virtual meetup in Spanish with BCH Barquisimeto on June 12th. Recently hosted an event with the owner of a private school looking to incorporate Bitcoin Cash into their school curriculum.

Other updates: 

Gold Coast, Australia: New organizer and meetup! First in-person meetup is scheduled on June 19th.

Tokyo, Japan: Weekly meetups continue.

Saskatoon, Canada: Meetups in Saskatoon being scheduled. Members increased this month. Thanks to Satoshi’s Angels for paying our Meetup subscription fees. We launched the SlpSwap.com protocol, an open source and peer-to-peer SLP token exchange via command line atm. We have been integrating a basic front via our use of Badger mobile. We have held more meetups for business through Digital Technology Group and have some follow up meetings to build a farmers market specific token and offline POS. More updates on this project next month.

Querétaro, México: New meetup starting soon! Onboarded the first two BCH businesses in June!

Acarigua, Venezuela: Created a group on WhatsApp and hosted its first virtual meetup for women with 18 guests. Partnered with two women's organizations to introduce BCH. Will continue to build a community using WhatsApp and virtual meetups.

8. Questions & Answers

Q: Can we use NFTs to promote earning money on BCH?

Let’s focus on pitching the entire ecosystem as the 2021 version which is more than just cash. For example, BCH is - a way to earn money blogging on read.cash, flipstarter.cash can be used to start new companies, juungle.net can be used to easily create NFTs (soon), etc.

A: Yes, let’s share this suggestion with the BCH community so they can educate everyone about the ways to use/earn BCH.

Q: Submitting the links to map.bitcoin.com is not appearing after a few days.

A: Satoshi's Angels will reach out to Bitcoin.com to find out if there are any issues.

Q: Can put together a list of approximately 5 online businesses to target for BCH adoption?  This will help us so we can work together to onboard prominent online businesses (e.g., pitch, networking, business contacts, etc.).

A: Everyone agreed to make this an ongoing topic and priority at the monthly meetings. Alex agreed to draft the list of 5 businesses (e.g., Coinstar, etc.)
