Austin Bitcoin Club – Bitcoin is Freedom
July 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This month we’re focusing on FREEDOM!
The Austin Bitcoin Club is a 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.

This month we’re focusing on **Freedom.**
Let’s keep the 1776 spirit alive as we dive into using bitcoin as a tool for freedom, both domestically and abroad.
**⚡ Permissionless Bitcoin Crowdfunding**
**[Nate](https://twitter.com/beeforbacon1)** from [Voltage](https://voltage.cloud/) is kicking us off by demonstrating how to create a bitcoin crowdfunding campaign using open source software. We’ll also discuss real-world implementations of this software and how it can be used as a tool to preserve and expand our freedoms, worldwide.
**⚡ Bitcoin is Freedom Panel**
For some, [Bitcoin](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLYYh4aPXAM) is an escape hatch from tyranny. For others, it’s way to preserve and build upon what freedoms we have left. Bitcoin is as American as apple pie, and one could consider it the return of the American dream. We’ve put together a panel that has a lot to say about these topics.
