"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."
Alvin Toffler

The primary goal of the Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire is education; to help individuals, businesses and developers better understand this new and worldchanging technology.

At our Embassy, there is no need to spend hours researching Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies via the Internet, only to get conflicting information, spin and confusing information.  Quite simply, we boil it down to the basics for you in an easy to understand classroom format.

Is this expensive?  No.  This is a project to help everyone realize the potential of a world changing technology.  All classes are funded by your donation, and if you can't afford anything today, take a class and keep us in mind when things are better.

Our offerings will continue to expand - be sure to check back often for new opportunities.
