Bitcoin Manchester

Monday 6th March, 7:00pm

Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money. It uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin Manchester is a meetup for Bitcoin users, miners, buyers, sellers or anyone else otherwise interested in Bitcoin in the North West.

This month we will be discussing the new layer 2 technology Lightning Network. The idea behind this month is to have multiple people produce short 2-3 minute suggestions on what concepts could be created.

We will start the night with a high level overview of the system and how it works for those who know nothing of the system and want to just learn about it.

Lightning may just be the answer that everyone was originally looking for with micro transcations, ultra cheap and massively scalable. Lets hear those ideas!

Highly encouraged that the audience coming may want to produce a single image or a concept to pitch to the group. It is not a requirement but the more the better.

If you are unfamiliar with lightning information can be found in the following places.
