On Thursday the 10th of October 2013 the third meeting of the Frankfurt Bitcoin Community took place at “Die Zentrale” co-working space. This time there were 14 people attending the meeting from them 5 “newbies” some of which traveled over an hour from southern Germany. This time community member “Bert” gave a talk with the title “Why the Bitcoin system is superior to all other currency systems – an example of a life insurance on Bitcoin basis”. The presentation that was planed for 18 minutes ended up taking over 90 and was quite interesting. The discussion often went back to thought provoking fundamental questions about the future of our society and the “Bitcoin-Impact”. The life insurance product “Bitcoin-Life” which has been approved by the financial regulatory authority of Germany “BaFin” will be presented to the “public” on the 17th German Health Insurance Convention (DKM Fachmesse der Finanz- und Versicherungsbranche) in Dortmund. If you are interested in learning more about the product or are thinking about getting a life insurance then take a look at the website http://Bitcoin-life.com

We hope in the coming days to release an audio recording of the presentation. The “highlight” of the evening was the adaptation of Bitcoin at die zentrale as payment for drinks. The next meeting is on 14.11.2013 at 18:00 with Jörg Platzer and JF Gallas from Berlin who have founded the German Bitcoin association. They will introduce the association and give us some first hand impressions from Germany´s most developed Bitcoin community.
