    Full description of the concept

    Learn about Bitcoin and the Blockchain. Bring an old PC or laptop and build your own Bitcoin full node, open a Bitcoin wallet and receive a fraction of a Bitcoin. Help banking the unbanked and fight corruption through mass adaption of a transparent and decentralized monetary system. Replace our broken and debt based banking system. Little by little, node by node...

    We would build a workshop where we inform about Bitcoin and the Blockchain and build new PCs out of old PCs and PC parts.
    We need an old PC and printer to create paper wallets (this PC and printer gonna be destroyed afterwards, to keep the paper wallets secure).
    I would try to build an intra-net to supply new nodes with the blockchain but we still gonna need Internet to download drivers.

    The minimum requirements for a Bitcoin full node are:
    Recent operating system like Linux, Windows or IOS
    Min 150 GB Hard drive space (100MB/sec)
    2 GB memory (RAM)
    For running a node (at home,office, garage) you need an Internet connection with a minimum speed of 50kB/s, a volume of 20 GB download and 200 GB upload per month (plus 140GB initial download for the whole Blockchain).
    Depending on PC or laptop 50-150Watt constant power consumption.

    About the group/Artist

    This dream is a pitch so far... I am helping at the Work Class Heroes as well, so I won't have time to pull it off alone.
    I'm gonna need some nerds, geeks, other human beings or cyborgs who can build and troubleshoot a PC and install Linux or Windows.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Anyone with basic to advanced knowledge in building PCs, troubleshooting, installing an OS and networks.
    Anyone creative to paint and make the information material and to beautify the nodes.
