“The BIT Movie” Visits Keene!

The Bit Movie

The BIT Movie’s Scott Glass with Mark Edge, Darryl W. Perry, and Ian Freeman

Launched just three days ago in Toronto, The BIT Movie crew hit the road on their tour of what will include 40 cities in 30 days. Their goal is to spend only bitcoin while meeting and documenting the diverse bitcoin community across North America.

The BIT Movie crew is well aware of the international renown that New Hampshire has earned as a vibrant, growing Bitcoin community, so they naturally decided to spend time visiting the liberty activist communities in Keene and Manchester. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter for the latest on this exciting production!

Is NH gaining a reputation as a Bitcoin destination?

BitcoinJust a couple of weeks ago, Bitcoin Magazine ran a story about New Hampshire’s lively Bitcoin scene. Prior to that, Bitcoin Magazine filed a video report from the bitcoin-accepting Stone Farm in Fitzwilliam and reported on this year’s Liberty Forum in Nashua.

Now Cryptocoin Magazine has published a story by Evander Smart that asks, “Is New Hampshire the most Bitcoin-friendly place in the United States?” What do you think?

New Thrift Store Hosts Region’s First Bitcoin Vending Machine

Many in the Keene area have read the Sentinel article about local businesses that are accepting bitcoin. Others may have heard about it from word of mouth or other media.  Bitcoin is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, and the word is getting out.  However it can seem confusing at-a-distance. What is this internet money and how do you get some?

The easiest way is in-person, from either another human, or in this case, a Bitcoin Vending Machine (BVM).

101 Deals Thrift Store just opened its doors on Monday at 661 Marlboro St. (NH RT-101) in Keene and on their first day of business, the Skyhook BVM was present, offering to sell bitcoin to anyone with a bitcoin wallet (usually on their smartphone).

If you don’t have a bitcoin wallet yet, there are a couple of very popular ones you can download for your favorite phone operating system: Blockchain or Mycelium. Once you have your wallet installed, drop into 101 Deals (seven-days-a-week!) with some cash and try out the Bitcoin Vending Machine.

You can keep your bitcoin, or when the transaction is confirmed in the Bitcoin network, you can use some of it to buy something you want in the store, since 101 Deals accepts bitcoin for purchases, just as do several other local businesses including Corner News, The Farm Concessions, Moda Suo Hair Salon, Carroll Garden Center in Marlboro, and Stone Farm in Fitzwilliam!

The 101 Deals BVM is the only one in the region, according to CoinATMRadar.com.  What an exciting development for the future of decentralized money in the Monadnock region!  To learn more about Bitcoin, visit WeUseCoins.com or drop in to meet the local bitcoin community on the Keene Bitcoin Network facebook group.
