We offer free education to local merchants. Online Marketing, Cryptocurrency payments, Bitcoin philosophy.
We build high performance scalable mobile apps since 2009 with a passion for open source p2p protocols.
We investigate the economic opportunities & social impact that Bitcoin has. We share our thoughts in social crypto networks and we manifest them into open source software code.
In 2013 when the price was at $130 our club president wasnt born yet, but a team member found out about Bitcoin and was directly convinced that this would be the solution to many social problems and wanted to convince his team which was currently developing a poker app to ride on the bitcoin horse integrating it into the Play Store app. But as Google and Apple policies are very strict we were not sure if that would be a long term success, so the team split when our first club member decided to drop everything and investigate on Bitcoin. He realized that there was a dispute within the Bitcoin community and that the battle on Reddit was already lost, so he focused on other projects while observing how the consensus of the community would change to realize that BTC had been infiltrated by some large scale investors like AXA and Bilderberg
In the morning of April 16th of 2014 a miracle happened and the club president popped out of its mother. How could she knew at that point that she would once be the president of The Real Bitcoin Club to become the world president as soon as global bitcoin adoption is reached. What a brave dog she is.
When finally the community had widely reached consensus that an update to Bitcoin would be necessary, to lower transaction fees on August 1th 2017 Bitcoin Cash was born with block 445833 which is also the color code of the TRBC corporate identity as a dark green similar to the USD. There was no representation of the BCH community at that point so a team member decided to build the website therealbitcoin.club to manifest the history of BTC and BCH (upload the archive and link it)
There was just one website called marco coino available to display merchants which would accept BCH but it was very poor in UI and UX without any updates incoming, so TRBC decided to build another variant that would serve the community interests better, especially in the sector of tourism and more focused on accurate verifiable places data
Move your BCH and bitcoinmap.world were the first apps we presented on the opening ceremony of The Real Bitcoin Club in Barcelona, Catalunya! At the same date our team started to exclusively use Bitcoin as a payment mechanism, being unvoluntarily unbanked since fall 2017??? check felix.guybity@p
After that in the field team members had learned that the word cash is very easy to pronounce in all languages, so to raise brand recognition we re-branded from .world to .cash
With forty places accepting Bitcoin within their own non custodial mobile wallet in Vila de Gracia, the hip libertarian catalan neighborhood of Barcelona suffering under spanish occupation still.
The Real Bitcoin Club relocated their offices from the metropole Barcelona to Tarifa a surfers beach town in Spain at the southest point of the european continent. Intensively educating seven places in Tarifa on Bitoin Cash
Within one month we released a prototype of a progressive mobile web app to offer a local currency to the community as a solution for gentrification. As state & nation wide currencies have mostly disappeared within the european countries during the past decades, they suffered under the euro and urgently need local currencies to protect their properties as consumer price index has grown dramatically since the euro was forcefully implemented by corrupt politiciams in Europe in 2001 which led to social rent payment obstacles.
After that we realized that the DASH project was also working heavily towards merchant adoption we added DASH places
Onboarding several places in Italy & Greece the TRBC moved to the neighborhood called "" which is crowded by middle east refugees running from the bombs financed by FIAT money since the illegal Irak war without UN mandate started in 2001
As Bitcoin dipped to the all time low since the big bubble in 2017 had bursted TRBC visited Germany to spread adoption in Berlin & Hamburg
As we always want to be at the center of global merchant adoption to invest our time where it is worth most, we moved to Venezuela to also verify the success of the DASH team as they promoted to have onboarded thousands of them in Caracas
After that we had
Working with DASH Text onboarding the street merchants in Caracas which only worked with cash up to that point or they had to pay 10-15% to pass payments on POS system.
When BTC lightning network was finally being widely adopted in Arnhem which was the first Bitcoin City in Netherlands we also decided to add these places to honour their work & efforts for the general bitcoin community.
As all parks in Caracas were closed since three months we moved from Caracas to Maracay to have a better life quality
After that we had moved to Maracay we added sharing features within all our apps and websites.
TRBC decided to better serve desktop customers of which still quite a few exist especially in developing countries by merging bitcoinmap.cash and our merchant directory app coinector.app on bmap.app
As Bitcoin was hitting a new ATH we invested into a property in Maracay to establish a permanent educational center for Bitcoin merchant adoption, with the objective to revive @BarrioBitcoin but lockdown made things really difficult for local merchant adoption and we were very busy renovating the house
As some especially corrupt venezuelan special forces from the FAES (population calls them asassinators) kicked in the doors of our club house and put a club member into jail we had to keep on onboarding inside the prison which worked quite well. Our club president could escape the raid passing special forces through the front door in a heroic act to save its life. She was very well cared for by the venezuelan neighborhood in Sorocaima as well as Feliz was very well cared for in prison by the person that had sold the house to TRBC
The local adoption around our club house was much harder than in Caracas as the neighborhood owns much less smartphones, so we looked out for a close place where many have smart phones and where international bitcoin tourism could be more inclined to arrive.
With the support of the local merchants and biggest vacation resort in Cuyagua, Venezuela we decided to release a website for all the places that would want to accept Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin and DASH. Also leveraging the power of Bitrefill & Sideshift which had already helped a lot to incentivize local merchants in Venezuela to accept crypto payments, educating locals on how to recharge their phones with Bitrefill
