Teaching the Basics of Bitcoin
Located on Route 101 in Keene, New Hampshire, is the Bitcoin Embassy. The aim of it is to provide a place where people can learn about cryptocurrency in a fun and easy manner, in addition to delivering network opportunities. It will also bring Bitcoin 101 lessons to individuals and businesses.
This is the second Embassy located in the U.S. The other is situated in Atlanta, Georgia.
The addition of the Bitcoin Embassy to Keene brings the total to 11. The remaining ones can be found in Amsterdam, Helsinki, Kiev, London, Montreal, Perth, Stockholm, Tel Aviv, and Warsaw.
In a report from the New Hampshire Public Radio, Chris Rietmann, executive director of the Embassy, said:
For regular everyday people who have heard about Bitcoin and they are intrigued by the idea, we can basically get them up to speed without throwing lots of technical jargon at them.
He adds that Keene was the ideal fit due to the high number of people who accept Bitcoin in the area.
Other areas in New Hampshire, which are embracing the crypto space include Portsmouth and Merrimack. Both of these places are also seeing a rise in the number of Dash payments.
New Hampshire Embraces New Technology
The state of New Hampshire has taken an open arms approach to cryptocurrency and the blockchain.
So much so, that last June, Chris Sununu, the Governor of New Hampshire, signed a bill into law that removes digital currency traders from the state’s money transmissions laws. Receiving support from grassroots organizations, the bill has paved the way for New Hampshire to be seen as a crypto-friendly state.
To also promote that New Hampshire is embracive of the space, the state-based newspaper, Monadnock Shopper, published a front-page article, last year, about Bitcoin in Keene and the businesses that accept it. These include Route 101 Local Goods, Liberty Lobby, ThinkPenguin, Keene Website Designers, and LocaCopia.
Even though other countries and governments are taking a hardline – such as China and India – about cryptocurrency, states such as New Hampshire are showing that while the technology is still new there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Instead of cracking down on it, why not embrace it to see where it may lead?
