We hosted our second Bitcoin Cash Perth Meetup on Tuesday, 4 February 2020.
The Restaurant 1903 owners are accepting Bitcoin Cash using the Bitcoin cash register app (Android || iOS). It is my understanding that they have accepted crypto previously using their personal mobile wallets.
We introduced them to HULA underwriting tool that allows merchants to accept Bitcoin Cash in their business while removing the risks associated with price volatility. Restaurant owners did not seem interested at this stage, they are happy to keep the BCH and spend it at a later date. And considering the recent price action, I am sure they made the right choice.

Firstly, thanks to our sponsors, we had a much better presence at this meetup.
As per our plans mentioned in the previous article, we launched Bitcoin Cash Perth Meetup Token (BCP) during this meetup. Each attendee received 10 BCP tokens via Bitcoin.com wallet. We had a slight issue with the LEAD airdrop as the SLP Dividend Tool was not excluding the mint address of BCP token despite selecting that option. Luckily, I was sitting next to a programmer. Many thanks to @mesquka for manually creating a BCH transaction and making the airdrop possible. As a result, 5000 LEAD Tokens and 0.03524214 BCH were airdropped to the token holders on the night. All BCH and LEAD tokens were raised through our previous article.
I am also glad to report that everyone paid for their meal and drinks in Bitcoin Cash. This is really important for our meetup as our main focus is to encourage and enable people to experience Bitcoin Cash, what better way to do it than actually using it. Leave us a comment if you have other ideas for us.
We were fortunate enough to have not one but two people with sound knowledge of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. And before we knew it, Blockchain 101 masterclass was on. Everyone who attended our meetup got a live demo of how blockchain works, courtesy of Ben and @mesquka. You can check it out by visiting https://demoblockchain.org/.
In the end, we were pleased to hear comments such as:
"I haven't been this excited about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies for a long time",
"I have learned something interesting tonight",
"I look forward to seeing you guys next time"
