Socratic Seminar #5 with Nik Bhatia
August 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
**The meetup has been bumped up a week (from the normal 1st Sunday of each month)**
***THIS EVENT WILL BE A BIT DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS, PLEASE BE ON TIME*** – we are going to start off with a live-stream interview of Nik Bhatia, followed by Q&A. Nik is the author of [Layered Money](https://www.amazon.com/Layered-Money-Dollars-Bitcoin-Currencies-ebook/dp/B08PS293NT) and publishes an excellent newsletter focusing on bitcoin & macro called [The Bitcoin Layer](https://thebitcoinlayer.substack.com/). Come prepared with questions! Once Q&A is over, we will conclude with our usual technical discussion.
***COME DIRECTLY TO THE PINOT BLANC BALLROOM*** *- we are no longer allowed to have the free wine before the event! Please do not get any, as they complained about people doing so at the last event.*
The Socratic Seminar events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing, and lively discussion. Inspired by other Bitdevs around the country, this is an event for those interested in discussing and participating in the research and development of Bitcoin and related protocols.
We will be going to “Independent Sports Bar & Grill” (225 SW Broadway #100, Portland, OR 97205; across the street) after the event from 7:30pm-9:30pm.
