The Austin bitcoin scene has grown another meetup. This time around designing on bitcoin. Do you own or contribute to a bitcoin project that needs design in some form? Are you a designer that could use help or collaboration on a bitcoin project? Then AB⚡️DC is for you.
Wednesday night kicked off the Austin's first Bitcoin Design Club at the Bitcoin Commons. The Austin Bitcoin Design Club is a bi-monthly gathering of Bitcoiners from all walks of life. The goal of the meetup is to assist the local and greater community with design help. They hope to build a space for fostering connections, idea development, and most importantly creating a strong sense of a design community here in Austin.
The meetup details went as follows:
- Welcome & announcements

Moderated By: @FuturePaul & @SahilC0
- Bring your creativeness. Bring your laptop. AB⚡️DC belongs to the community, contribute anyway you can.
The genesis meetup started with everyone introducing themselves. After the introductions both Paul and Sahil kicked off with design news covering everything from fonts, figma to the "dark yellow problem” in design system color palettes. The best part of the meetup was the hands on workshop. A group of 5 individuals all created a team to solve a design problem in bitcoin. Each group worked together to build a flow, concept or app on how the problem could be fixed. They even jammed their own AB⚡️DC Spotify curated playlist during the event. 🔥vibes
Afterwards each team was asked to present and explain how each bitcoin design challenge could be solved.
AB⚡️DC call to action: Add your project to the list
