Plans are underway for the opening of a UK Bitcoin Hub based in Bury, Manchester. After years of ideas and plans CryptoBates Group think it is time to see a UK location which will help bring together the community on a more regular basis with the aim of helping onboard and educate interested folk and create a space for great minds to connect
CryptoBates Groups network has expanded rapidly since their first UK event in 2016 and it'll be great to see the dedicated groups we work with collaborating and supporting the new generations of Bitcoiners.
Goals of the Hub: ON-BOARDING, EDUCATING AND SUPPORTING.
Some of the main areas which the hub will host include:
BUILT AROUND CRYPTOBATES GROUPS NETWORK WHICH HAS GROWN ORGANICALLY VIA OUR UK EVENTS. THE HUB WILL HOST A VARIETY OF WORKSHOPS INC SOLIDITY, LIGHTNING, NFTS, BITCOIN BASICS, CRYPTO TAX AND MORE.
