Bitcoin Wednesday — #BTC1W — holds its second anniversary party on 1 July 2015.
Bitcoin Wednesday will celebrate its 2nd year of consecutive digital currency events held — without missing a beat — on the first Wednesday of every month since July 2013.
The biggest, best and longest-running regular conference on the digital currency revolution in the Netherlands takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. July 1st will be Bitcoin Wednesday 25, our 25th monthly edition, marking almost to the day exactly 2 years ago that we gathered for the first Wednesday night of Bitcoin celebration.
Join us in celebrating this milestone. This event, like most Bitcoin Wednesday conferences, is free.
What once started as a community-driven meetup at a bar on the Leidseplein for about two dozen of The Netherlands’ earliest Bitcoin pioneers is now a free monthly conference for both beginners and experts, and is growing into one of the largest events of its in kind in Europe.
To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Bitcoin Wednesday, we’re planning to host a special night of presentations and networking. We want as many Bitcoiners as possible to have the chance to spend time with their colleagues and friends.
The warmup to the conference begins at 1700 with a reception and benefit dinner at our beautiful new location, VondelCS.
National broadcaster AVROTROS has recently converted this beautiful landmark into a modern broadcast facility and performance center.
There will be a cash bar open in our conference hall for pre-conference drinks and networking from 17:00 onward.
Between 1700 and 1900 you are invited to join us for a special benefit dinner in our exclusive space overlooking the Vondelpark. There are limited places at the table.
If you would like to have dinner with us, please mail [email protected] with your preference for lamb, beef or vegetarian as soon as possible.
As usual, the presentations begin at 1900 sharp. We’re aiming to have drinks and possibly also food available in the conference room throughout the night.
Joshua Scigala, Australian director of the Vaultoro bitcoin-gold exchange.
Vincent Everts, one of the country’s most prominent trendwatchers, a pundit on innovation on national television and radio and an ambassador for new technology.
Corné Plooy, Dutch software designer for a company in the semiconductor industry and creator of the Amiko Pay solution for improving Bitcoin’s scalability.

We are therefore proud to invite you to yet another informative and enjoyable evening organized around the important recurring theme of cryptocurrencies. As you’ve come to expect, networking will be at the heart of this event: run into your old, familiar Bitcoin Wednesday friends and colleagues, tell stories about the early days; meet the newcomers and share your ideas about the future. After a few presentations, there will be ample opportunity for networking at the bar.
Mark your calendar for the first Wednesday of July so that we can raise a toast together to the increasing role of Bitcoin in Dutch society.
Bitcoin Wednesday is free. All membership is free. The digital currency revolution leaves no one behind. Please bring colleagues, friends, family and neighbors with you.
Bitcoin Wednesday is an accessible event for anyone who has interest in digital currencies or the related technologies, a great chance to meet other like-minded professionals, and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
Mark it down in your agenda; join us on Wednesday at 17:00. The conference itself begins at 19:00, but we gather earlier at the bar for networking.
