Bitcoin 101 Class at Bitcoin Embassy NH

Keene, New Hampshire has already established itself as a world leader in real-life businesses accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at their cash register. Now local area cryptocurrency advocates have taken the next step and opened an educational center to help people learn about crypto – the Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire.

The Bitcoin Embassy NH joins others around the globe, and is the second in the United States. The first Bitcoin Embassy in the US was Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy, which opened earlier this year.

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! Though, donations are certainly welcomed if you find the class valuable. Classes are also available for those looking to learn how to accept crypto at their businesses.

Already the Embassy has received coverage in the Keene Sentinel, NH Public Radio, and a front page feature in the Monadnock Shopper News.

The Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire is open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday and is located inside Route 101 Local Goods at 661 Marlboro St. in Keene, NH.

Of course, the Bitcoin Embassy NH is just the latest development in the area. We already have an active Meetup group with meetings every six days and Telegram chat room, so please connect with either or both of those to join the cryptocurrency community in the Monadnock region.

People spending DASH at NH retail are getting instant rebates, aka “DASH-Back”. Here’s why and how it works.

Chart of USD's fall over 100 years.

The dollar’s not going back up from here.

One of the biggest challenges that cryptocurrency needs to overcome in the market is the tendency of its adopters to hold and never spend their crypto. It’s called Gresham’s Law, the idea that bad money drives out the good from circulation. That means given two choices of which money to spend, the consumer, understandably, will choose to spend the inferior currency. Here, the inferior form of currency is the government money (the U.S. Dollar) and the better form is cryptocurrency. Since crypto users know there is a chance their crypto could go up in value and we all know the U.S. Dollar is sure to go down in value over time (due to politicians inflating the supply of U.S. Dollars), the smart thing to do in that situation is to spend the dollars and hold the crypto.

This is a difficult situation because the more people who hold crypto, the less of a currency it is! Thankfully, New Hampshire-based merchant payment processor Anypay has come up with a solution to overcome Gresham’s Law and incentivize people to actually spend their cryptocurrency in these still very early days of crypto.

What if, when you spent your crypto at local New Hampshire merchants, you instantly received some crypto back into your wallet? No filling out forms. No signing up for a program. No “points”. No waiting weeks or months for the payout. Just an instant rebate, right at the point of purchase – on anything you buy in the store or restaurant.
