Bitcoin Embassies are a new trend we have seen come to fruition over the past few months. Several major cities already have their very own embassy, including Paris, Kiev and Tel Aviv. In two weeks from now, Amsterdam can also be added to that list, when their Bitcoin Embassy opens its doors to the public.
The location for Amsterdam’s Bitcoin Embassy is Zeedijk 43, next to “Hofje van Wijs”. At Hofje van Wijs, customers can sit down for food and/or drinks, and check out using Bitcoin as a payment method. It is interesting to note there is a Bitcoin ATM present at the location as well.
Creating a Bitcoin Embassy in Amsterdam as a way of giving Bitcoin a physical presence in the capital of The Netherlands would not be possible without sponsors. Rubion, BitBay, Blocktrail and MrBitcoin have joined forces in order to make this project a reality.
The Bitcoin Embassy Amsterdam is a non-profit initiative striving to be an approachable platform for all Bitcoiners, whether they are experienced or novice users. The venue can be used for meetups, conferences and even a flexible workplace for everything Bitcoin-related.
Furthermore, Bitcoin Embassy Amsterdam will be offering showcases in regards to newly created cryptocurrency products, both hailing from Amsterdam as well as beyond. These products are then to be sold at the little shop, which can be found inside the Bitcoin Embassy Amsterdam building.
The Bitcoin Embassy in Amsterdam will open its doors to the public on December 12th, and if you are planning on attending this grand opening, or are simply interested in finding out more information about the project, make sure to check out their website.
