Santorini Halving Party 2024

Picture this:

You are in the unique island of Santorini. The sun is shining, you have a cool Greek beer in your hand. There are bitcoiners all around you, and you’re having fun.

The halving is almost here. Bitcoin is changing the world.

Life is good.

Why are we doing this?

The community built on top of bitcoin has left the cypherpunk mailing lists and the internet fora. Though we may still meet in internet plazas and have lots of fun doing so, the real-world locations that are supporting bitcoin have made many lone wolves gather and socialize.

In 2023 there had been 40 bitcoin conferences around the world, big and small. Not counting the hundreds of meetups, special events, pizza parties, workshops and so on.

We are ready. The social layer of bitcoin is as important as it ever has been. Nodes as software and physical entities are only part of the equation, active noderunners are the other half.

We are ready to take bitcoin mainstream in a right way. Open, bitcoin-only events, fun places to be like the world-famous Santorini island, and celebrate according to the bitcoin ethos.

We are ready to make the halving event a tiny bit as important as the Olympics every four years. Future generations will celebrate this in their own way, but it will have started now.

So, we invite you to our Halving Party. It will be worth it, and you’ll remember this forever.

Santorini halving party at 12-14 of April 2024.

Fun things we’ll be doing:

  • Screening of bitcoin films from Bitcoin Film Fest.
  • Boating accident! Daily cruise with a yacht for any who want to go. Requires separate ticket from our partner Barbarossa Sailing https://barbarossasailing.com/ or if you prefer to pay with bitcoin at https://loveisbitcoin.com/product/daily-cruise-with-yacht/
  • Barbecue. Greek food. Yum.
  • Orange Pills.
  • Orange Panties
  • Halving 3point125 glasses
  • Some bitcoin talks. Not too many.
  • Chainduel Tournament, a lightning-based videogame.
  • Proof of Work sessions with hands-on experience on Nostr, securing your seed words on metal and using a bitcoin-only exchange.
  • Halving Highballs: Mixology Masterclass for Bitcoiners
  • Halving Games
  • and more!

The party is meant to be family friendly, at least until it becomes nightfall.

Where will it take place?

We want to create a relaxed atmosphere, so everything is happening at:

Castro Hotel Achilleos, Kamari, Santorini, 84700, Greece

You will have to get the main ticket that includes accommodation. If you wish to stay longer, you can arrange your stay with the hotel’s reception.
