Arguably set to become the world’s biggest Bitcoin Cash conference yet, Bitcoin Cash City kicked off today in sunny Townsville, North Queensland. The city is not only colorful, friendly, and home to some very beautiful coastline, it’s also shock-full of opportunities to use Bitcoin Cash for everyday living. As such, it’s well-suited to promoting a cryptocurrency seeking not simply to become a dusty store of value, but a real living, breathing cash for anyone and everyone to use in their daily lives. Here’s a brief overview of what to expect from this one-of-a-kind, dynamic gathering.
A Crypto Explosion in Townsville
Birthplace of Julian Assange, Townsville could be said to have a recent history of bringing forth innovative ideas challenging the status quo, with the recent rise of BCH adoption in mind. The rapid proliferation of BCH-friendly merchants and vendors here over the past year has been almost uncanny, when compared with rates of adoption in other locales. “Uncanny” if it weren’t for all the hard work the local community is putting in, promoting adoption and development of everyday use cases, and pursuing visions of future mining operations as well. From construction companies to coffee shops, cafés to convenience stores and beyond, if you need it, you can often pay for it here in Townsville with Bitcoin Cash.
