BTC2B Congress Brussels Is Close & Thanks to Platinum Sponsor Transaction Coin, Tix are Cheaper!


         BTC2B Congress Brussels Is Close & Thanks to Platinum Sponsor Transaction Coin, Tix are Cheaper!

The Congress has a new Platinum partner that is sponsoring cheaper tickets!

Bitcoin 2 Business Congress Brussels will take place on 16-17 October in the B19 Business Club. The event is mainly focused on Bitcoin business and monetary future, debates, speeches by key players in the industry, B2B meetings, networking and start-ups. The event is designed for 100-150 attendees. The main aim is to accomplish more of a personal and friendly atmosphere where everyone will be able to meet with anyone.

From the beginning the organizers setup the prices higher to make sure they will be able to cover all expenses. “It was against our idea of having friendly atmosphere and make our events accessible to everyone. Every Bitcoin Conference has a high ticket prices which goes against the philosophy of the Bitcoin” says the organizing team and concludes that “thanks to a great cooperation with the Transactioncoin, we´ll be able to reduce the prices and make it available to the people that normally wouldn´t be able to pay that amount of money”. The current ticket price is now being only 99 €.

So the company that made this possible is a relatively new coin Transactioncoin. Txcoin is a P2P Crypto Currency with a hybrid proof of work (PoW) system. Txcoin supports two hashing algorithm: SHA256 and SCRYPT. Each algorithm has its seperate difficulty, both targetting 2 minutes. Txcoin can be merged mined with either sha256 or scrypt based altercoins. Now what is interesting and exciting about the merged mining phenomenon is that Txcoin is a “mining side-effect eliminator” a medium that eliminates the side-effects of mining, such as a huge electricity consumption, cost of mining hardware, etc.

Among other things, the attendees can look forward to a friendly atmosphere, great networking, meeting the key players from the industry and enjoying their time in “de facto” heart of the European Union. Among other speakers we can expect Vitalik Buterin from the Ethereum, Moe Levin from BitPay, Lutz Auffenberg, Christian Ander or Stan Wolf. This is officially one of the most accessible events in the Bitcoin world and it is always great to see the growth of the Bitcoin community, especially in Europe.

So come and support the community in Brussels. You can register here and buy your ticket with credit card and with Bitcoin of course. Tickets will be available on place as well but the organizers strongly recommend getting your ticket advanced since the BTC2B Congress has a limited number of attendees and tickets will be more expensive when buying at the venue – 150 €.

Bitcoin continues to tumble lower and lower as it struggles to claim any footing in the market. It’s down almost 50% in three weeks and it’s showing very little sign of stopping. It’s currently clutching onto the $3,500 values but it doesn’t look like it can hold on much longer.
