Route 101 Local Goods To Teach Crypto And Open Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire
Bitcoin and virtual currencies are very interesting assets. However, it is very difficult to learn all about them and how they work. And those who feel intimidated by Bitcoin’s intricacies have a new organization that aims to make bitcoin more friendly and acceptable.
A shop in Keene’s southwest corner known as Route 101 Local Good will be working as the Bitcoin Embassy in New Hampshire. The place is property of Christopher E. Rietmann of Alstead, and he hopes to launch it in September this year.
Rietmann started to work in order to upgrade Route 101 Local Goods and offer a space for seminars and workshops. But teaching about Bitcoin was not an easy task to start, even when he has been accepting bitcoin for payments since 2015.
He said that different customers that enter the store and saw the machine did not have enough resources on how to learn about Bitcoin. In order to allow individuals to start learning about it, he decided to give lessons about it.
Indeed, he explained he was not able to deal with all the requests, so when there was a harder topic such as programming, he had to contact other experts on the matter.
About it he commented:
“When we get into more advanced topics like programming, we hope to pull in other crypto enthusiasts for those courses. I think we can offer something that a lot of people aren’t going to find just by browsing the web.”
One of the most important Bitcoin leaders, Gavin Andresen, lives close to the shop, in Amherst, Maas.
Rietmann noted that the new Bitcoin embassy does not have a structure yet. He mentioned that he did not arrange whether it will work as a business, as a nonprofit organization or as something else.
At least during some time, he is planning to accept donations for the classes. Those attendees that want to learn about Bitcoin can pay for their initial workshop with traditional forms of money. However, donations will only be accepted in virtual currencies.
