The second BitcoinForum Bavaria has been announced for April 12th in Ingolstadt. A southern German Bitcoin cluster is forming around Volksbank Bayern Mitte.

If you live in southern Germany and would like to find out more about Bitcoin, you should mark April 12th. On this day the 2nd BitcoinForum Bavaria will take place in Ingolstadt. It is aimed at “no-Bitcoiners as well as Bitcoiners”.

The BitcoinForum shuttles between two locations: From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. there are workshops at the Ingolstadt University of Technology, about the “Beer Tap”, full nodes and hardware wallets. Participants then have the choice of whether they want to stay at the university to take part in a lightning session or walk to the city theater for an introductory event. The “BitcoinForum for Professionals” begins there at 7 p.m. with presentations and discussions. The event ends with a BitcoinParty from 10 p.m.

The speakers include some well-known names from the German scene, such as the podcaster Niko Jilch and the YouTuber Roman Reher. Chairman Richard L. Riedmaier and his deputy Andreas Streb are present from Volksbank Bayern Mitte, and President Professor Walter Schober and Digital Business Professor Christian Locher from the university. You can also meet well-known Bitcoin entrepreneurs, such as Kris plaintiff (TeraHash), Roland Stadler (Shift Crypto), Jens Leinert (Coinsnap), Bastian Feder (Lipa), Michael Anton Fischer (OPAGO), “Joko” from BitBox and others.

All in all, it is a remarkable event. In Ingolstadt, Volksbank Bayern Mitte is increasingly becoming a southern German Bitcoin hub, in which it is the link that brings the community, university, savers and laypeople together. Entry is free for visitors, and companies that want to present themselves can book a stand as a trade fair exhibitor.
