I'm now a Certified Bitcoin Professional (CBP) and require future staff to have their CBP too
Hi there, Haven't seen anything posted on this yet so I thought I'd go ahead and show off my new accreditation: Certified Bitcoin Professional, CBP. It's a new standard that was unveiled tonight at Bitcoin Decentral, Toronto. I can honestly say after going through the process, it really does help determine if someone understands the trust and decentralized components of Bitcoin. C4 (Crypto Currency Certification Consortium, https://cryptoconsortium.org) has launched two certifications. Only CBP is available now, CBX is coming soon and looks serious. Really, the CBP is a 75 question multiple choice test you have to complete within 20 minutes. Once you pass, you're certified shortly after and become a professional. I was blown away at how it tickled my brain and asked me the intelligent questions I like talking about Bitcoin. You cannot fluke this test, anyone who passes knows their stuff. Because it's so fast, you can't even Google answers. You need to know off the top of your head. There's nothing else that exists like this (that I've seen). Which is why I've decided to make it a required credential for any future staff at QuickBT. For me, it outsources one of the key (and difficult) parts of the screening process: thorough Bitcoin knowledge and understanding. This is especially true for customer service who are expected to be knowledgeable. Anyways, kudos to the C4 team - this accreditation will be global soon. Jamie Robinson, CBP QuickBT Team
Our film "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" reached its crowdfunding goal! Here's our worldwide distribution plan…
First off, THANKS to everyone that contributed, retweeted, liked, subscribed, and helped push this campaign across the finish line. We had such a diverse group of people from across the globe get involved, some giving as little as $0.50 and some giving as much as $1000! You did your part, now here's mine… "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" is partnering with Meetup.com groups from around the world to arrange special private screenings for local bitcoin Meetups. We have 21 Meetups and counting! The first batch of screenings will start on Monday:
9/15 Bitcoin Budapest
9/16 Nashville Bitcoin
9/17 Bitcoin Decentral Toronto
9/18 Bitcoin Vancouver
with additional commitments from: Edinburgh, Zürich, Amsterdam, New York, Austin, South Florida, Washington DC, Seattle, Denver, St. Louis, Houston, Perth, Portland, Auckland, Tampa, Milwaukee, and Raleigh. If you want to arrange a screening for your Meetup.com group get in touch through my Meetup profile. Next Friday, September 19th, we will be offering the film to everyone! Here's how you can see it:
Download it directly from TheProtocol.TV or Vimeo - Pay with PayPal/credit/debit - $3.00
Watch it with advertisements on YouTube - FREE
And…here we go… Download it with Bittorrent and pay what you want -- Listen, someone would have torrented the film anyway. So, for those who are going to get the movie this way, please tip to the public address embedded in the file. At the very least, please subscribe to our YouTube channel and/or follow us on Twitter.
** A SPECIAL NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS ** This is all new territory for us. As such, we didn't really work out this distribution plan until well after the crowdfunding campaign was under way. So, to realign the rewards to your contribution level…everyone is getting upgraded! So that means, if you put in for a Twitter "thanks" then you will still get that AND we're adding the next level which is a digital download. If you put in for the digital download then you will get that AND the special edition DVD. And so on. It's going to take us a little while to reconcile all the contributions, names, and final credits so that is why the film will not be released to the general public until next Friday. Thank you for your patience. What an amazing ride! I have learned so much in the process and I can't wait to get working on our next film. Until then join our newsletter to keep up with everything that is happening with TheProtocol.TV. The next series of video interviews includes Andreas Antonopoulos, former Director of the U.S. Mint Edmund Moy, Dave Babbitt of SWARM, and Adam Draper of Boost.vc Our new beta website will launch during Inside Bitcoins: Las Vegas. If you happen to be in attendance, stop by the panel I'm on: "Tales from the Crypto: Bitcoin Inspired Art" and say hello. Cheers! -v. *EDIT: formatting
My girlfriend and I were in T.O. this weekend to take in Edgewalk at the CN tower, and after dropping our bags at the hotel (paid for in bitcoin via cheapair.com! Awesome!), decided to checkout the ATM at Bitcoin Decentral...which never happened, as we came a bit too late on Saturday! :-( Anyways...to the TLDR; It was impossible to find the street address (64 Spadina Ave BTW!), through google maps, which I imagine is where any tech savvy tourist would likely look first! So...It's Monday morning tomorrow...I'm guessing there's enough bright minds at Decentral with the googlefu that could have a google places page hashed out by about 10:30am if this post gets enough upvotes! :-) Make it happen, and Tuesday's coffee for Decentral HQ is on me!

Seen on the comment section: @adiiorio "I've been receiving messages about how this will impact my current companies and initiatives. Decentral and Kryptokit, along with the decentralized tech (DEC_TECH), Bitcoin, and Ethereum events we host at MaRS Discovery District and at our space will continue on as normal. This position with the TSX is more of a strategic add-on position with them sponsoring our events and vision to push Canada as a top-tier player in financial tech and innovation."
