Highlights of the inaugural Western Australian Bitcoin Bush Bash

Nannup, a small timber and beef growing town in south-west WA, hosted the first bitcoin bush bash in the state. Highlights from W.A.B.B.B. included talks on monetary history and modern policies, bitcoin best practices and hashing fundamentals. Even a talk on regenerative agriculture was provided before the brisket was served.

The organizer of the first bitcoin bush bash in Australia’s greatest state, W.A.B.B.B., shared some highlights from the weekend. I want to share these and encourage you, especially if you’re on our west coast, to follow W.A.B.B.B. and get along to an inspiring bitcoin event.

The Western Australian first-ever bush bash went well. We were hoping to get more than a single-digit turnout. To get over 20 people attending was fantastic for the bitcoin community in W.A. The day went smoothly.

Doc Sharp’s intro into the history of money was a great baseline and brought everyone’s knowledge of money up to date.

Melissa’s research into Australia’s cash ban and the planned CBDC the RBA is working on was an eye opener for many into what has happened and what to expect.

Next up was Merribee, Nannup’s local regenerative farmer who gave us a world of knowledge most of us hadn’t heard before.

Timbucktwo did a short drop dive into home mining. It was tip top.

Then we dived into BTC best practices and nodes by Hashpig to round off the day before one delicious brisket by Notorious BIT and lawn bowls.

The after-hours beer banter is one of the best things of a bush bash. How a bunch of like-minded randoms can get together to make such events memorable is great.

It was good to see how to run a bush bash and test the waters. We can’t wait for the next WABBB.
