CoinFest Cryptocurrency Convention goes Global
CoinFest started in 2013 at Waves Coffee House, where the world’s first Bitcoin ATM was later installed by CoinTrader. Non-profit and true to the open source movement, there has never been any patent or copyright associated. It grew from a hundred people gathered in Vancouver, to several hundred simultaneously across Canada, with awesome partners like the Decentralized Dance Party in 2014.
Returning again in February in 2015, CoinFest has since spread to 25 cities around the world. CoinFest.org’s funds are held in a multisignature wallet, with the funding scheduled to be distributed to cities around the world to promote cryptocurrency during CoinFest. Eventually, CoinFest will be instituted as a decentralized autonomous organization, following a decentralized model much like Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
