The Bitcoin Center has physical & virtual hubs across the globe for individuals and enterprises to learn about and grow the bitcoin sector.
Bitcoin Center NYC is dedicated to promoting Bitcoin, educating the public, and hosting the local Bitcoin community. In other words, we are THE place for Bitcoin! We have a strong following in the New York Bitcoin community and our events often feature and are attended by prominent figures in the Bitcoin world. But this is not enough. We will not rest until every man, woman, and child has a Bitcoin wallet and is transacting in Bitcoin! Founded by Nick Spanos, an accomplished entrepreneur who cut his teeth in real estate, Bitcoin Center NYC first opened with a kick-off New Year’s Eve party on December 31st 2013. More than ten years later, we are still the premier name in Bitcoin in NYC. Located at 2307 Broadway in Manhattan, we’ve created a place where people can walk in and learn about Bitcoin at any time.
The Bitcoin Center NYC offers a versatile event space for rent, providing a modern and tech-forward venue for bitcoin-related events, workshops, and meetings. The space features cutting-edge audio and visual equipment, including large screens and projectors, and can be configured to accommodate a range of seating arrangements, from theater-style to banquet-style. The space offers high-speed internet connectivity, making it an ideal location for hackathons, pitch events, and other bitcoin-related gatherings. In addition to its functional amenities, the event space boasts a sleek and contemporary design, with ample natural light, providing an inviting and stylish backdrop for any event.
Bitcoin Center hosts virtual hackathons each month to advance the development and drive awareness for the most innovative projects in the bitcoin space. Each hackathon features developer workshops, panel discussions, and project presentations from leading experts and industry leaders.
These virtual events provide a safe venue to meet amidst the coronavirus pandemic and also provide a scalable global setting where anyone in the world can participate or tune-in.
Our Bounties and Sponsorship opportunities foster development and community growth in the bitcoin space. Projects can engage the Bitcoin Center community and network directly through our hackathons and offer incentives for developers to build on or users to adopt a new framework/protocol.
Winning teams during the hackathon can win up to $5,000 in cash prizes plus special prizes from our sponsors.
Our bounties give hackathon teams and additional prize for developing a project for a specific protocol or framework.
Developers can compete as individuals or in teams with a maximum number of 5 members. No development may occur before the official start of the hackathon. In addition to submitting your code, a brief video presentation highlighting what’s been built is required for consideration.
There is no age restriction to attend the hackathon. In case you are under 18, your parents/legal guardian should contact the hackathon to request a waiver authorizing you to participate. We welcome all who wish to participate no matter your skill level as the ultimate goal is education.
