Austin Bitcoin Club - Privacy & Security

Austin Bitcoin Club - Privacy & Security


This month we're focusing on PRIVACY & SECURITY. Privacy is a human right; It is something that is neither given, nor taken away. As the world becomes increasingly digital, so too does it become increasingly surveilled. With cash going away and Central Bank Digital (Surveillance) Currencies (CBDCs) on the rise, what role does digital cash, Bitcoin, play?

We'll also be discussing the importance of not only securing your bitcoin, but doing so safely and effectively by removing any single point of failure.

As always, food and drinks will be provided!

The Austin Bitcoin Club is a monthly gathering of Bitcoiners from all walks of life. We are building a space to facilitate connections, idea development, and most importantly, creating a strong sense of community from which we may all draw support.

Bitcoin is for everyone, and together we'll make sure that vision comes to life starting right here with the orange-pilling of our beautiful city, Austin.

We intend to grow alongside our community. So, with that in mind, come help us grow! Bring your ideas, bring your passions, and together we'll build the future we all know is possible through Bitcoin.

Stay connected via Telegram.

We'd like to thank Unchained Capital and Bitcoin Commons for sponsoring Austin Bitcoin Club.
