Once the Bitcoin flyers were tapped out on late Sunday afternoon, the crowd (there at that point for the demolition derby) continued to flow by. Chris Cantwell, (who is an amazing talent at doing booth outreach) and I handed out a large stack of CopBlock WARNING fliers. After quickly exhausting that supply, we moved on to handing out NHjury.com and Foundation for NH Independence fliers for the remainder of the event. In total, just Sunday alone, we likely handed out 500 fliers of the above-listed sorts.
Naturally, it was a lot easier to hand out the CopBlock, Independence, or Jury fliers. The reactions to those were almost all positive. Getting the Bitcoin flyers out was more of a challenge, mainly because lots of people attending the Cheshire Fair do not have internet! (We live in the woods.)
Giving away the pro-secession Foundation for NH Independence fliers was especially enjoyable as it was fun to watch New Hampshirites’ eyes light up when they heard about the idea of NH declaring independence! People are ready for the idea and the Foundation is doing a great job getting the conversation started! Check them out here, if you have not yet done so.
As you may recall, in 2013, we focused on having people read and sign the Shire Society Declaration and had over 200 people sign it in the five days of the fair.
This year, hundreds of fliers were distributed, several Blockchain.com Bitcoin wallets were created and some were funded with the evolutionary cryptocurrency thanks to the Shire Free Church‘s new bitcoin vending machine! Plus, there are at least two local businesses that are very excited about possibly taking Bitcoin! Stay tuned to Free Keene and the Keene Bitcoin Network on facebook for the latest.
