Austin Bitcoin Club – The Pleb Symposium

June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This month we’re focusing on Bitcoin Mining & Community!

The Austin Bitcoin Club will be a once monthly gathering of Bitcoiners from all walks of life. We are building a space for fostering 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 Texas.

We intend to grow along side 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.

We’d like to thank **[Unchained Capital](https://unchained.com)** for sponsoring **[Austin Bitcoin Club](https://austinbitcoinclub.com)**.
