Recently CypherSafe exhibited at the BitBlockBoom Conference in Dallas, Texas. This was a bitcoin only conference that did not allow any non-bitcoin crypto currency topics. The conference was put on by Gary Leland the host of Crypto Cousins and many other podcasts. Gary did a great job, he helped us in so many ways, and was very accommodating to our requests.
We attended a lightning workshop put on by Pierre Rouchard. This was very educational as we knew very little about the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which allows instant payments with bitcoin. One of the pieces of software recommended by Pierre was the Breez Smart Phone lightning wallet.
Another pre-show event was the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute BBQ dinner, held at Ferris Wheelers Backyard BBQ. What an amazing venue that was full of character! This was a real Texas style BBQ, that was a real treat. After the dinner a benefit auction for the institute was held, with such items as Jimmy Song’s hat, and bitcoin programming book, and Saifedean Ammous great book “The Bitcoin Standard”.
Our booth could not be missed, with a giant sized picture of Archie, the bad dog.
We brought our prototype CypherWheels as well as production ready CypherPlates. The interest by attendees was amazing. We had numourous questions, and were able to show the CypherWheel in action. Thanks to Nicholas for giving a shoutout on Twitter about the CypherWheel. Leaving this show, we felt ready to double our efforts to get it out!
Another vendor there, that we got to know was LibertyX. They are helping merchants convert regular ATM’s into bitcoin ATM’s. They had an ATM setup at the show and you could try it out. It was quite fun to put $20 in and get $20 worth of bitcoin on your phone!
The speaker list was amazing. Unfortunately we only had time to catch one presentation. “The Art of Bitcoin Rhetoric: How to Meme Bitcoin to the Moon” by Michael Goldstein. This was hilarious and I’m glad we were able to catch it.
Oh, how could we forget. We got to meet the bitcoin pickle!
