How does one get involved with the MIT Bitcoin Club?

The MIT Bitcoin Club provides forums where Bitcoin-related ideas, projects, programs, events, and businesses can be studied, discussed, and developed.  We often get questions from Bitcoin enthusiasts and experts on how they can get involved with the Club. Here are five ways you can do so:-

Our weekly newsletter is the central source of information which announces the times and agenda for all our events. Additionally, the newsletter shares details of important Bitcoin and Blockchain related events/news which might be useful for the members. Subscribing to the newsletter should be your first step in getting involved.

2. Attend our meetings
Our core event, the weekly Tuesday meetings are always open to the public. Come attend them every Tuesday at 8 PM and participate in the discussions. We meet throughout the fall and spring semesters. Meetings are typically held in MIT Building 5.

Bitcoin Scaling

The club had its first Open Discussion of the semester on 11/14. Ryan Stirling moderated the discussions centred around Bitcoin Scaling.

Block propagation time, its relation to the block size and to the incentives for a miner, adversarial model, etc. were a few among several other related topics discussed among a room full of attendees. The full minutes of the meeting can be read at this link.

We hope to have more open discussions and presentations in the coming weeks. Our meetings are always open to the public; every Tuesday, 8 PM, at 5-217. Hope to see you at the next meeting.
