The Bitcoin Organization Philippines or BOP is a nonprofit organization, and a community of Filipino Bitcoin enthusiasts, where each can share ideas, speculate and organize meetings/meet-ups with fellow Bitcoiners. July 25, 2015 – Saturday, the organization had a meet-up, and hosted a booth at YouthHack Manila 2015’s Startup Fair.
Several members of the Bitcoin Organization Philippines were present during YouthHack Manila 2015, as they managed the organization’s booth. Miguel Antonio Cuneta and his colleagues helped informing students, future tech entrepreneurs rather, about Bitcoin.
Katalyst.ph, a venture fund and member of the Bitcoin Organization Philippines was a major sponsor of the event. Katalyst also hosted a start-up workshop/presentation for the YouthHack Startup Challenge 2015: “Developing and Marketing the Next Unicorn Product” to educate and inform aspiring entrepreneurs about the key to success. The venture’s big name throughout YouthHack and its connections to Bitcoin therefore piqued several young entrepreneurs’s curiosity towards Bitcoin, while visiting the Bitcoin Organization Philippines’ booth.
We may be seeing more of Katalyst and the Bitcoin Organization Philippines in
more hackathons, financial workshops and tech conventions in the Philippines in the future as both slowly extend their reach throughout the country.
NewsBTC Philippines has scheduled an interview with Katalyst.PH, and we may be hearing more of their plans early this week. Stay tuned for more corporate Bitcoin news in the Philippines.
