PAST EVENT

Ready for another Reckless VR Bitcoin Meetup?

A VR headset is recommended, but NOT REQUIRED!

Preparation is required before the event starts. You MUST RSVP to join event! See instructions below.

Cypherpunk Women: Book Launch Party

Cypherpunk Women is an open-source anthology edited by Leigh Cuen - Senior Reporter at Coindesk - and published by Cita Press, with contributions by women around the world who are bitcoin developers, users, entrepreneurs, artists and educators.

Celebrate the book's launch with us!

Leigh will take the stage to share the story behind Cypherpunk Women. We will then host a panel with contributors to the anthology:

  • Josie Bellini is an artist and designer, and contributed “The Bitcoin Art Manifesto”

  • Audrey Chaing is a cryptocurrency analyst and trader, she contributed “How to Make Art with Bitcoin”

  • Tina is a developer in Tehran and contributed “Interview with a Shopper”

  • Norika Kizawa is working on the BitPrism Project and contributed “Interview with a Bitcoin Researcher”

Capacity in VR is limited. Be on time to increase your chances of getting in, unfortunately you won't be able to join if we exceed the maximum capacity.

How do I join?

This event is hosted on the AltspaceVR platform. It is available for most VR headsets, and also without a VR headset, on Windows PCs. Some users had success running it on Linux PCs, by downloading it through Steam and turning on "Steam Play" for all apps and games through Steam settings. Your mileage may vary!

PREPARATION IS REQUIRED to join the event! Please follow the following steps to prepare, BEFORE THE EVENT STARTS:

  1. On a desktop/mobile web browser, create a new AltspaceVR account if you haven't already, or Log in if you have.

  2. On this event web page, click the RSVP button. YOU MUST RSVP BEFORE THE EVENTS STARTS, otherwise you won't be able to join. You can't RSVP after it starts!

  3. Download AltspaceVR for your platform.

  4. Start the AltspaceVR app and log in with the same account you used on step 1.

  5. Go through the first-time tutorial if you didn't yet. This is required to join the event. You'll select an avatar, then follow the blue arrows on screen to learn how to navigate the world.

  6. When you're done with the tutorial, the Altspace menu should be available through the bottom-right corner. Navigate to EVENTS menu and then the INTERESTED tab, and you should see this event show up there. You're ready! Once the event time arrives, a "join" button will appear here!

If you can't join us on Altspace VR, you can still watch the live video stream on YouTube!

Bonus for hard-core VR people :)

Like we do every week, we will follow the Altspace VR meetup with an after-party on VRChat. It's kind of like going out for a drink with the friends you met at the event. You're welcome to join that too, just follow these steps ahead of time:

  1. Watch this video on setting up VRChat

  2. The user you need to send a friend request to in VRChat (explained in the video) is “udiWertheimer”

  3. And this is the registration form you must fill
