Sadly as we’ve been unable to find a speaker in time, we’re going to cancel our March meetup. (The “regular” 1st Monday slot would have been March 2nd.)

However, we’ll announce April’s meetup next week. It will be worth the wait – stay tuned! :-)

Please note – due to an administrative problem the domain bitcoinmanchester.org.uk is down, currently trying to resolve this Nominet but it may take a few days. Email is unfortunately offline too but you can still reach us here.

Thanks +Adam R. The problem isn't with the hosting, the problem is that I changed to Gandi account that owns the domain at the same time I changed address, so I had no proof of address to send them (even though the domain hasn't really changed owner!). I asked Smile / Co-op Bank to send me a statement but it has taken them so long (as always, sight) that the Nominet deadline passed first. I am not happy to say the very least!!! I hope it will get resolved soon.

Glad to hear you're getting something ready, we'll organise something for a future meetup!

Cheers
Ash

Call for speakers! We have a talk booked for April, but not March. It could be long, short or in between. I posted more details to the mailing list, if you have any ideas, please get in touch. Short version (blatant bribery): your short talk means everyone gets to eat pizza and go to the pub :-)

The mailing list post is in the incredibly obscure link attached to this message… apologies for the random German

Even with prices falling traded volume is increasing.
Trading volume has surged at the sub-$200 bitcoin price, making it the busiest day for exchanges since last November.

Digital currencies: Call for Information submission

I've been working with +Max Flores today to finish our entry for this consultation. This is the document we sent.

We've included most of the points raised at the meetup on Monday (thanks to everyone who came as some of the input was priceless). So you guys can take credit for what we included, and we'll take the blame for what we left out. (And I'll take the blame for any mistakes as I was the typist for most of this…)

Please leave feedback, as looking back it would have been better to dedicate much more time to this. There are no doubt many things that could be improved and there is at least one contentious point in there!

I don't know if there's any Shibes here, but I've started a Dogecoin wallet to raise funds.  To re-home the dogs from Manchester Dogs Home after the recent arson attack.

How come the group isn't listed on - www.meetup.com - or is that a stupid question?

A few reasons. Meetup.com is a bit of a walled garden, they lock in content like Facebook, so we have an email mailing list as the main location for announcements and discussion ( https://groups.google.com/group/bitcoin-manchester ). We don't need to track the number of people attending as we never exceed the capacity of MadLab, so we have Google+ just in case anyone wants to say they're coming. Meetup.com makes you pay for stuff we either don't need or have free and better alternatives to. (Just my opinion though.)

Links to Prezi page as promised.

Not sure how much use the slides will be but the links are all there.

Seems I forgot to paste in the full description of tonight's event, as Google+ makes it hard to see the link to the full event page: http://www.bitcoinmanchester.org.uk/meetings/bitcoinmanchester-12/

Here's what's happening:

October’s speaker will be Jason Kelly of Isle of Man based Qwikbit Solutions Limited. Qwikbit installs and operates Bitcoin AVMs (“kind of like an ATM, only for Bitcoins”) in the UK and their stated mission is to ensure that Bitcoin is as widely available and easy to purchase as possible. Qwikbit owns a number of Lamassu Bitcoin automated vending machines and they intend to launch a number of their AVMs in Manchester in the near future.

Jason will speak about the history of Qwikbit, the operation of their Lamassu AVMs (We are hoping that Jason will have one of his Lamassu AVM’s with him in October to demonstrate to the group!) and will also bring insight into the development of the positive environment for Bitcoin businesses on the Isle of Man, recently styled in Daily Telegraph as “Bitcoin Island”. He’s also happy to answer questions and talk about any other topics the audience would like to hear about.

We're giving you all a second chance to explore bitcoins tonight at 6pm as part of #Politika: Art & the Affairs of the City.

Head down to the Engine Room to join Bitcoin Manchester who are back by popular demand to talk about the crypto currency.

Please note: there will be no meetup on Monday. The timing is difficult for our speaker and it's MadLab's summer refurb time. The next meetup will be on our regularly scheduled slot on Monday Oct 6th!
