The event is being hosted by HackMiami and the Miami-Coral Gables Open Source User Group. The goal of the event is to bring forward discussion about the potentials for daily use of Bitcoin and other alternative cryptocurrencies, such as Litecoin. An introductory presentation to the concept of cryptocurrency will be also be presented by members of HackMiami.

In addition to the planned gathering, Planet Linux Caffe owner Daniel Mery has announced that they will be accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment, establishing them as the the first restaurant/coffee shop in South Florida to accept the peer-to-peer digital currency. “We hope to further solidify the foundation of Bitcoin as a viable economic digital solution that can be used in daily activity, while at the same time staying true to the Open Source spirit,” stated Mery.
