TRBC believes that local merchant adoption is what mostly creates a viral effect on sustainable long term bitcoin network growth.
We build high performance scalable mobile apps since 2009 with a passion for open source p2p protocols.
Our lead developer has been working on mobile p2p platforms since 2009 even before Android 1.0 was released to the market and achieved to have the most wanted p2p audio sharing app in the Play Store in 2011.
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 or you can find some of the Bitcoin Club archived publications up there in the menu. E.g. When will the USD bubble burst? or The new money, cryptographic tokens.
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. He wanted to convince his team which was currently developing a p2p poker app to bet 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 478558 which is also the color code of the TRBC corporate identity as a dark green similar to the USD. There was no web presentation of the Bitcoin BCH community at that point so a team member decided to build the website therealbitcoin.club to manifest the history of BTC and BCH Archived TRBC Website from 2017
The Real Bitcoin Club, always at the cutting edge exciting about optimizing processes, developed the very first NFC Bitcoin Cash Cards that were able to replace the receivers device. The objective was to offer a low cost solution for bars and restaurants where each bartender could have an NFC card hanging around their neck, to receive p2p non custodial payments to the wallet of the bar manager.

The TRBC always has the user in the focus of attention, so to attract more users to give BCH a try we hosted some parties at local bars and parks. At these parties clients could pay their drinks with bartenders using the NFC cards while listening to the Bitcoin headphones that we had custom designed, thanks to Bitcoin we were able to make an order delivered from China.
There was just one website called marco coino available to display BCH coinmap merchants which would accept BCH merchants but it would never display BTC nor DASH places. In addition 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. Being more focused on accurate verifiable bitcoin places that anyone can verify on Google Maps.
MoveYourBCH 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, having Feliz being unvoluntarily unbanked since fall 2017 when DKB closed his accounts illegally disrespecting german law.
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 bitcoin places accepting BCH and BTC within their own non custodial mobile wallet in Vila de Gracia, we celebrated the first Bitcoin BCH neighborhood on planet earth in a bar. The hip libertarian catalan neighborhood of Barcelona is suffering under spanish occupation still, so trbc thought they would have big interest in a non spanish currency, but most of the attendents at the opening event paid with euros and were mostly interested in investment. So we left Barcelona one month later to enjoy the coast of spain driving it down south in a bus to Tarifa.
The Real Bitcoin Club relocated their offices from the metropole Barcelona to Tarifa, a surfers beach town in Spain, at the most southest point of the european continent. Intensively educating seven bitcoin places in Tarifa on Bitoin Cash - BCH Maps. Also onboarding a few places to Google Maps as we had been doing since the beginning, the review and local guide features of Google Maps are very useful to drive even more Bitcoin customers to these places accepting BCH, DASH or BTC
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 politicians in Europe in 2001 which led to social rent payment obstacles.
After that we realized that the DASH project was also working heavily towards cryptocurrency merchant adoption we added DASH bitcoin places
Onboarding several bitcoin 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 BCH dipped to the all time low since the big cryptocurrency 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 bitcoin 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 finally released a cross platform edition of Bitcoinmap so that even the Coinmap iPhone users could find it in the App Store/. We still recommend to use the coinector.app web variant because it is always up-to-date while apple policies are making it difficult for us to push updates.
Working with DASH Text onboarding some street bitcoin 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.
As all parks in Caracas, Venezuela were closed since three months we moved from Caracas to Maracay to have a better life quality, it was a brilliant decision and we found much more affordable flats to rent with an even better mobile Internet connection.
After that we had moved to Maracay, Venezuela, we added sharing features within all our TRBC apps and BMAP websites. You can go and give it a try, share your favourite place to your friends on social media right now and make an impact on adoption! The following link is an example of what your friend will see: La Pasticceria di Gracia and this is the sharing panel of Coinector of that same place
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 Bitcoin map 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 coin map merchants and biggest bitcoin tourist vacation resort in Cuyagua, Venezuela we decided to release a website for all the bitcoin places of the Cuyagueros that would want to accept Bitcoin Cash - BCH, Bitcoin - BTC and DASH. Also leveraging the power of Bitrefill & Sideshift which had already helped a lot to incentivize local bitcoin map merchants in Venezuela to accept crypto payments, educating locals on how to recharge their phones with Bitrefill
