Austin Bitcoin Club kicked off on a stormy Thursday nite in the Mecca from the Bitcoin Commons on Cinco de Mayo. This month's Pleb Symposium was hosted by Michael Atwood of Oshi.

This month at ABC they focused on the bitcoin circular economy.

What is that exactly?

The Bitcoin Business Panel featured Michael Atwood who was joined by bitcoin-accepting business owners from Austin and Miami. They talked about why they decided to incorporate bitcoin into their businesses, what they've learned, and how they're working to encourage other local businesses to do the same.

Michael Atwood of Oshi talking with John owner of Taquiza Tacos, Emil a owner of several Austin businesses (East and Feast, Hookah bar, and others) and last but not least, local legend Brian from III Forks Austin chatting about what drove them to start accepting bitcoin.

It was an awesome time with about 50% of people coming to their first Bitcoin meetup and about 25% businesses owners. Vibes were high at the Bitcoin Commons.
