[Bitcoin Munich] Next Meetup: Thursday, Dec 22nd - Paper Wallets Workshop



https://www.meetup.com/Bitcoin-Munich/events/233919372/

Did you know you can print your bitcoins on paper and store them safely offline that way? Also holiday season is near, so we'll have an introduction talk and workshop about paper wallets, which make an original and unusual Christmas gift as well.




Apart from that, far beyond the use in Bitcoin and crypto-currencies, the concept of private and public keys, as depicted on such a paper wallet, may become more and more pervasive in the future in general. Passwords seem to be unsafe, as users forget them or pick too easy ones. And no matter what certain big hardware and OS manufacturers try to tell you, biometric identification like face or fingerprint recognition is unsafe as well and can easily be spoofed, as often demonstrated by ethical hackers.

So we'll take a look how secure (while hopefully still easy) identification and authentication may look in the future of a blockchain world. Maybe personal crypto-key management can and will some day become an intuitive habit in everyday life, just like we're used to handle our physical keys.

Target audience: Beginners

You're encouraged to bring your tablets or notebooks for this hands-on session! You should already own some bitcoins (or fractions), and have a wallet installed, e.g. Electrum.

Timetable:

19:00 Doors open, get-together, food + drinks

19:30 Bitcoin & Blockchain news roundup

20:00 Rupert Zinnecker: Paper Wallets for Crypto-Currencies
  • What are crypto-currencies?
  • How do I manage my crypto-currency units? ⇒ Wallets, especially paper wallets
  • Why do paper wallets work? ⇒ Blockchain technology
  • The paperwallet.bit website
  • Paper wallets as crypto cash, is that possible?

You're very welcome to bring little things (cookies, tea-light candles, etc) to contribute to an xmas party atmosphere. Maybe leave a comment or contact one of the organizers so that we can better coordinate initiatives in this direction! Thank you!

Hi everybody.

I have a good news, two mozilla employees are okay to help us organize and host a diaspora* event at the mozilla Paris office. We will have a working space with internet connection, and all we need to work.

We talked about a four days event, as people are coming from quite far away the trip has to be worth the cost.

About the accomodation I propose to ask the lovely diaspora* community for places to stay by night (hotels are **very** expensive in Paris).

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
