Hello All,

   A group of bitcoin true believers, led by foundation member Nick Spanos, is opening a Bitcoin Center on 40 Broad Street in Lower Manhattan. The goal is to have a location in which interested people can come to be educated and integrated into the Bitcoin economy.

The location assures it will get plenty of attention and this could be a huge boon for bitcoin in 2014.

We are having a grand opening new years eve party at the location and all are invited.

Please Come Out, This is Big!

Buy and hold, dummies.

This is fantastic.

It was literally two weeks ago that we were discussing doing exactly this in a smaller, more boutique form deployable in certain fashionable New York and San Francisco neighborhoods... Which is probably still a good idea, by the way!

Frankly yes it is a very cool information that people like Nick are contributing extensively to promote the bitcoins. I wish he succeed in his mission of popularizing the bitcoins and for sure I will visit the place when I have my visit in New York. Probably in February I have to go to New York so will see it with my naked eyes

This kind of news is so great, it really highlights why Bitcoin is destined to crush all other payment methods.  Nothing else has this level of enthusiasm behind it.

Can you imagine any unpaid volunteers donating time and money to create a PayPal Center, a Visa Center, a Dwolla Center, or even a Federal Reserve Note center?

We have relentless in-your-face persistence and martyrs on our side.  The other teams have nothing but mercenaries and traitors.  There is only one possible outcome.

40 Broad St is a building of condos, not a business address. There's an art gallery/event space there, so that's probably where they held the party.

I did see that some bigwig hedge fund guy is opening a BTC fund.  It is becoming mainstream but I think it's just taking a while.

This is pretty cool I wish them success with their center.

I wonder though what is their business model, how will they make enough money to cover the insane wallstreet rents and then some  Huh

It looks like the big announcement wasn't the Fortress thing but the keynote congressman speaker who is running for senator in Texas accepting BTC for donations, and promising to introduce a bill to keep Bitcoin regulation-free in the USA.

ok why is Nick Spanos qualified for this?

doing something like this could mean two things:

1) people are getting together and organizing

2) someone is trying to buy out the community


which one is it?

no reason to naively cheer on obvious press releases.

A group of bitcoin true believers, led by foundation member Nick Spanos, is opening a Bitcoin Center on 40 Broad Street in Lower Manhattan. The goal is to have a location in which interested people can come to be educated and integrated into the Bitcoin economy.

I just found this thread, and I was excited about this when I read about it, but now to find out that it is using the "foundation" name to either sound legit or to be a local chapter disappoints me. As a New Yorker who lives near this area and would have loved to spend a couple days a week in their learning, teaching and just working on new bitcoin stuff. I would have also donated my skills, time and money. The foundation is a horrible organization that just wants to hire scammers to lead it's anti-openness of information, so to be allow myself to be affiliated with such corruption, I just can't. This is a real shame, and I am probably more upset about this. I really hope this place would consider not using the foundation name to promote, or even work alongside it.

Before you write this off, as a troll or something of that sort, remember I been here for over a year, been in bitcoins over 2yrs, I know what I am talking about, and I would have loved to help in anyway.

Get news, I just hope they can do this in every countries. Then a lot more people will use bitcoin.

Do not buy anything from Ninelives or MiningHardware.co.uk. He is running a scam. Ninelives has closed 4 business within 6 years. To avoid tax and his past customers.
