      The announcement was met with great enthusiasm by the local Bitcoin community in part because of the close proximity of the events to the border which made it easy for Venezuelan Bitcoiners to attend. This activity allowed the attendees to share their ideas, knowledge, and doubts about Bitcoin.

He also addressed several attendees who were victims of recent ponzi schemes using bitcoin, emphasizing that Bitcoin is not a pyramid based system nor an investment program. Bitcoin is a decentralized network where anyone can use it directly without the need of a third party.

        本活动是以活动组织者Arley Lozano的三篇介绍而拉开序幕,分别为《什么是比特币》,《交易如何在比特币区块链上传播》及《第一次如何创建钱包》。他说道好几位与会者都是最近比特币庞氏骗局的受害者,但是他强调比特币不是以系统为基础的传销,也不是投资项目,而是去中心化网络,在这个网络上,大家都可以直接使用,无需第三方。

       值得注意的是,本次活动有国际人士参与,如Linda Martinez,她是委内瑞拉《比特币女人》栏目的主持人,这个栏目是委内瑞拉比特币社区的主要代言人,向大众解释了一系列可用于比特币网页和商业项目开发的服务和应用。
