Pleb Lab & OSHI presents 'Bitcoin Block Party' on December 2nd: A Bitcoin Standard Austin, Texas.

Be apart of history, as Austin takes the first step into moving onto a Bitcoin standard. We are throwing the biggest Bitcoin Block Party ever assembled on historic Rainey St. all powered by Oshi.

Started by the Plebs for the Plebs.

The "Austin Bitcoin Club" "KeepAustinPleb" "Pleb Lab," founded by Kyle Murphy, Keyan Kousha and Car Gonzalez in 2021, are redefining the idea of what a Bitcoin Club "monthly meetup" can do for its own city. What started with a couple Plebs looking to hangout out with Bitcoiners once a month has turned into a selfless driven purpose to assist its city in building out a thriving Bitcoin community. Austin Bitcoin Club hosted out of Capital Factory and its mission to be the center of gravity for entrepreneurs in Texas, has turned into the largest social gathering of Bitcoiners in a matter of months in Austin. #KeepAustinPleb events churned out bitcoin centric events focused in and around Bitcoiners in Austin. Pleb Lab which came out of a need to further Bitcoin, Lightning developers and projects working in Austin. Created a workspace among other brilliant Bitcoin developers at Pleb Lab. Its first Pleb Lab cohort of projects were provided startup advisory, mentoring, business development, networking, marketing and strategy. They were given a couple years of growth in the span of a few months. A rapid Bitcoin accelerator for Bitcoin wizards. Pleb Lab has grown to be the first of its kind.

Meet Oshi

Taking advantage of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network and processing payments instantly and near-free, without the middlemen, saving businesses time and money, while creating a Bitcoin Standard in every city.

Together with one of its projects out of Pleb Lab, "Oshi," founded by Michael Atwood, look to move Austin businesses onto a Bitcoin Standard. Oshi is helping local businesses and consumers leverage the bitcoin network to empower their community.

When you show business owners the above image, take into consideration the inflationary measures governments around the world have taken since lockdowns. Business owners run the numbers and they understand earning Bitcoin through Oshi is an absolute no brainer. To date, Oshi has onboarded a total of 12 businesses here in Austin and 1 in Houston. A total of 47 businesses are on Oshi and its rapidly evolving. We are now seeing a compounding trend where businesses and other parts of the food supplier chain are onboarding themselves onto Oshi.
