New Hampshire Bitcoin Embassy Offers Free Bitcoin 101 Classes
Cryptocurrency and libertarian activists from Keene New Hampshire have been steadily pushing digital currency adoption for a while now. This past Monday the group of advocates from the region, who also run the city’s active cryptocurrency Meetup group, revealed the launch of the Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire. The embassy will be an educational center dedicated to teaching people all about digital assets, explained the creators. Further, the organization now joins the other state embassies located in the U.S. like the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy operated by the Austrian economist Jeffrey Tucker.
Additionally, the group from Keene have explained the new embassy will offer free “Bitcoin 101” classes for visitors. “With the goals of education, networking, and inspiration, head ambassador and instructor Chris Rietmann opened the doors to the Bitcoin Embassy NH in October and has already created a “Bitcoin 101” class that is free to take,” explained the Free Keene blog. “Donations are certainly welcomed if you find the class valuable and classes are also available for those looking to learn how to accept crypto at their businesses.”

Spreading Cryptocurrency Adoption Across the Free State
The crew from the Free Keene blog and members of the community have been spreading cryptocurrency adoption relentlessly lately on all fronts. Recently, the group got a number of merchants to accept digital assets in the city such as a dentist, Indian restaurant, hair salon, and vape shop. Then, this past August, news.Bitcoin.com reported on the group creating Cryptotip.org, a platform that allows users to create simple paper tips funded with bitcoin cash.
The Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire has received positive media coverage within the region as well. The embassy’s members have explained that the story has been covered by NH Public Radio, the Keene Sentinel, and a front-page story in the Monadnock Shopper News. Additionally, the embassy had a discussion and presentation concerning Bitcoin’s first hash war that started on Nov. 15.
The creators of the embassy state that the organization has more development plans for the future and people can discuss the embassy using Telegram. For people who want to visit the new Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire, the center is open Tuesday through Sunday and is located inside Route 101 Local Goods in Keene, NH.
