Coming November 13 – 19, 2020…

 

What’s going on?

For the first time in history, we’re going to have CoinFest not during the usual time in April. We’re going to have a CoinFest… in November. Think of it kind of like Christmas in July.

This was made necessary by the coronavirus pandemic, which caused countries around the world to enforce rules against social gatherings. All physical events in April were subsequently canceled, but deposits had already been paid on several venues. On those grounds, the community decided to temporarily break tradition, which shall henceforth be tolerated in the event of a global catastrophe.

With the “second wave” now coming on, however, we find many people are again still afraid to go out. Therefore, we have decided to focus mostly on online events, but physical gatherings may still be found in safer parts of the world. See all of the activities below!
