'Joined' bitcoin back in Jan this year... visiting Cyprus right now... just discovered Neo & Bee story... quite the saga!
I've only been seriously into Bitcoin for about six months now, ever since my own 'down the rabbit hole' moment that many others have also experienced. I've been learning and reading about all aspects of the space that I could get my hands on and am familiar with most of the stories and key players throughout BTC's short history. Somehow though, I'd never come across this Neo & Bee story until now. I was introducing a Cypriot friend I'm visiting within the startup community to Bitcoin and he told me of this Bitcoin bank scandal that they had a little while back. I did some digging around here on reddit and was amazed at what I found. It really seems like this one could have been the company to tip things in the space if they had delivered on what they had promised. Here's a brief summary of links I found interesting, for anyone else who might be unfamiliar:
I've been looking for any signs of a local bitcoin community during my short stay here and could find none at all. I'll be doing a short intro session with my friend today, who's already pretty excited about the space since I properly explained what Bitcoin really is and how it works. Here's to hoping that the Cypriot bitcoin community can find its way again and get things going in Cyprus. Cheers, from Larnaca ;) p.s. did you find any interesting stories around this in your explorations nathanielpopper?
I'd love to take a trip to Cyprus, see Neo & Bee, and have a few vacation days to spend some Bitcoin while I'm there. Any suggestions for how to get started?
Any travels tips or cool places that accept BTC would be much appreciated!! I want to start engaging with the world and spreading my love of cryptocurrency as I go. Would be very excited to hear any suggestions from you guys!
