Two start-ups working in the cryptocurrency realm in Omaha, Nebraska are aiming to put together a fun and educational experience for bitcoin enthusiasts and newcomers on the 15th of September in the Old Market neighborhood of the city.
Dubbed Bitcoin Day Omaha, the event was organized by Alpha Bitcoin and BlockchainIO. At the event, attendees will be able to learn about this emerging digital currency, get a bitcoin wallet established, and perhaps even go on a scavenger hunt around local businesses, where they can win prizes, according to Silicon Prairie.
That’s not all, though. The half-day event will also feature a bitcoin mining demonstration and a cocktail/social hour. And if you’re in the market for some new wheels, there’s a 2014 Kia Soul that you can have a chance at winning.

The event runs from 2 pm to 9 pm on the 15th (a Monday). Educational sessions/seminars begin at 2 pm, and the aforementioned scavenger hunt begins at 5 pm.
At the social hour, the first bitcoin ATM in Omaha will be revealed.
All in all, if you’re in the area and don’t have a terrible lot going on that Monday night, you may want to consider popping in. The event is open to all.
Nebraska hasn’t quite been a hot spot for bitcoin activity over the past year, but this event could possibly get the ball rolling in the area.
The location of the event is Blue Sushi Sake Grill on 416 South 12th Street.
