Meetup Growth Summary December 2015
Power Ranking for Nov 20th – Dec 19th 2015
I’m a day late posting this month sorry. There are 11 months of data to summarize now so next month will be the end of the first year. Every month adds more clarity and shows us which meetups are doing the best work and attracting new members. We can’t say anything about the quality of events they hold, but maybe next year I will look at attendance at all the meetup events as well.
Here is the link to the spreadsheet on Google docs: (the filtered tab is probably the easiest to view, set the date at the top and sort by growth % Z→A for best view)

There are 41 groups on the list however 4 have been removed for inactivity. This month saw mainly the regular top meetups grow quickly again and a couple surprises as well. Bangalore India Bitcoin Meetup
held top spot from last month adding 85 new members for 8.72% growth, this was after adding 118 members last month. Bitcoin New Hampshire
was 2nd with 7.25% growth and Seoul Bitcoin Meetup
came in 3rd with 6.20% growth thanks in part to the Inside Bitcoin Conference held in Seoul earlier this month.
Mentions go out to Israel Bitcoin Meetup
for passing 2000 members this month andBangalore India Bitcoin Meetup
for passing 1000 members.
The largest move up the rankings was by one of the smallest group,Bitcoin New Hampshire
, going all the way from 35th to 2nd. As a side note, I am only going to be adding groups to the list who have more than 300 members from now on. Another big move up was from Bitcoin Hong Kong
recovering from last months 29th place finish to end up 9th this month. Nice work. Other improvements came from Free State Bitcoin Consortium
31st up to 8th, Bitcoin Meetup Switzerland
up to 7th spot from 17th last month. Barcelona Bitcoin Community
came storming back, up from 25th to 6th place and finally Seoul Bitcoin Meetup
moving up from 10th into 3rd spot.
A lot of moves up also means a lot of fails for others, Bitcoin London fell out of the top 10 from 6th to 16th, and Bitcoin Stockholm fell to dead last with no new members last month. Bitcoin Munich also fell from 4th spot all the way to 25th. Other groups to drop lower were Portland, Argentina and Austin Texas.
If you would like your meetup added to the list just ask. Good luck to all you meetup organizers this month. If you have any big events coming up post them below. I also post this to /r/bitcoin and the Bitcointalk.
