IRC (Internet Relay Chat) was created in 1988. As such it is considered one of the granddaddies of chat networks. There are thousands of IRC networks in the world that are administered by various groups of IRC operators but the protocol exposed to IRC users is very similar and all IRC networks can be accessed by the same IRC client software.
#bitcoin-nl, the discussion generally heats up from around 18:00 to 21:00 CET
#bitcoin-nl on IRC is one of the oldest IRC channels in the Netherlands about Bitcoin and was created by two IRC users named Zusje and Phedny on june 3rd 2011. It has been online ever since. During the day it can be rather quiet but the discussion generally heats up from around 18:00 to 21:00 CET. There are some noteworthy bots available, one of them is called Arbitron that is not just handy for interest rates but can be hilarious in his responses at times.
