| A sofa in the hardware hacking tent where one can discuss the topic of Bitcoin
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency. Peer-to-peer means that no central authority issues new money or tracks transactions.

If you want have a chat about the background, potential, problems, scams, distrust of bitcoin, drop by and look for the bitcoin table / sofa. I don't think there is enough interest in having a real village now, so that is why I'm hosting this in a corner of the hardware hacking tent in the Hxx Village
As this topic often causes debates and flame wars, bringing a beer is mandatory
If you want to read up on some of the heated debates on bitcoins, check out the Bitcoin Forum
You can also trade your bitcoins using the Bitcoin Exchange
(Please DON'T bring any mining machines, they use way too much power)
solar energy powered miners with FPGA or ASIC bio-wetware are welcome though
The lecture Imagine the Future of Money will redirect people to this sofa space for later discussion through the night on day 2.
