Michigan Bitcoin Meetup #9

July 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for Michigan Bitcoin Meetup #9, hosted in Benton Harbor / St. Joseph, MI.

As is our custom we’ll be meeting with other Michigan bitcoiners, discussing the latest bitcoin-related topics and enjoying a few Michigan-made drinks (provided).

6:30 – 7:00 – Meet & Greet
7:00 – 8:30 – Discussion

**Discussion points of interest:**

* Our experiences with acquiring bitcoin privately

If at all possible please prep for this by experimenting with acquiring some satoshis that are not associated with your name/ID.

You can do this with privacy in mind via non-KYC exchange options such as:

* https://hodlhodl.com
* https://bisq.network
* Bitcoin ATM
* Decentralized Exchange (DEX)
* …or other method of your choosing

We can swap tips and learn from everyone’s experiences. Feel free to swap sats too.

***If you are new to bitcoin don’t worry. Just come learn along with us.***

**Our most recent meetup included:**

* Muun wallet setup for our newest bitcoiner friend
* Tips and resources for learning self-custody (hardware wallets, backups etc)

**About Our Meetup Group:**

If you keep up with a bitcoin podcast or two and have read any of the most-recommended books you’ll be well prepared to participate.

If you work in the space, run a bitcoin business, mine or operate a node you are 100% our kind of bitcoiner.

For those quite new to bitcoin we often recommend the following content for prep (you’re welcome regardless):

Article: [The Bullish Case for Bitcoin (Article)](https://vijayboyapati.medium.com/the-bullish-case-for-bitcoin-6ecc8bdecc1)

Podcast episode: [The Ultimate Bitcoin 101](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMtdXB6g6HI)

Books for additional content:

-The Bullish Case for Bitcoin by Vijay Boyapati
-Layered Money by Nik Bhatia
-The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous

We’re a bitcoin-only group so we plan to keep any discussion of altcoins/crypto/blockchain minimal and directly connected to the topic at-hand: bitcoin.
