Bitcoin Center NYC was founded by Nick Spanos and it is in the financial district of New York City. [1]

Bitcoin Center NYC hosted classes, talks, and a trading floor. [2][3]

In 2015, the center's operating company filed for bankruptcy protection following a dispute with its landlord[4] and in the midst of uncertainty surrounding impending regulation of digital currencies by the New York State Department of Financial Services.[5] Afterwards, the center temporarily relocated to Cleveland Place in Nolita[6][7] and is currently located at 157 Prince Street.[8][9]

Early years

Before 2014, New York's bitcoin community originally met in Union Square and also in a Whole Foods on the Lower East Side.[10]

Notable visitors

Elected officials and political candidates to have visited the center to voice their support for cryptocurrency include former U.S. Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas[11][12][13][14] and Maine State Senator Eric Brakey.[15]

Notable personalities to have spoken at or visited the Center include Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin[5] and Bitcoin educator and evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos.[16] The center was also prominently featured in CNN's Morgan Spurlock Inside Man[16] in 2015 and in the 2016 Netflix documentary Banking on Bitcoin.
