Windsor, ON, April 30, 2014 — BitWorks, a local company focused on the digital currency known as Bitcoin, is proud to announce the second Monthly Bitcoin Meetup at The Windsor Beer Exchange, 493 University Ave West, Saturday May 3, at 1:00 pm.

The Meetup, modeled after similar events held regularly all over the world, is an opportunity for local business owners and community members to learn more about crypto currencies, and about BitWorks, the Local nascent company working to build infrastructure and develop businesses in the emerging digital economy.

“This is a very exciting time,” says BitWorks CEO/Founder Anthony J. Vanden Berghe. “Crypto currency technology is really starting to get a foothold around the globe. We are extremely eager to help spread the word.”

In addition to introducing newcomers to Bitcoin, Vanden Berghe says the Meetup is a way to kickstart local entrepreneurs into thinking about Bitcoin related business. “This months meeting will focus on what are known as Alt coins – spin offs from the original Bitcoin block chain, used to create alternative digital currencies, sometimes with features and basic improvements over the original bitcoin protocol.”

Alt Coins are currently being used as a way to test new ideas and new programing features for the Bitcoin protocol, and can be traded on various exchanges, much like traditional currency exchanges.

Despite the advanced topic for this months meetup, the forum is still designed to be a way for newcomers to the bitcoin concept to start to learn the basics.

“We’ll continue to give a primer on bitcoin and why it’s useful for anyone just getting involved,” says Vanden Berghe. “We’re here to help grow this economy from the ground up.”

BitWorks was recently selected to be BIzX Magazine’s Business of the Month in the upcoming May issue of the Magazine.
