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.

Robinhood Brings Free Crypto Trading App to Alaska and Oklahoma

This week Robinhood, the booming smartphone stock and crypto commission-free trading app, announced it had extended its services to the US states of Alaska and Oklahoma. Effectively, the company is gaining on being available in nearly half of the United States.

Free Crypto Trading App Robinhood Available in Alaska and Oklahoma

Including Alaska and Oklahoma, the 19 other states where users can try the app are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The app features half a dozen cryptocurrencies, but users are also privy to legacy and institutional stock markets, charts, options, as well as up-to-the-minute data from altcoins such as Bitcoin Gold, Dash, Lisk, Monero, NEO, Omisego, Qtum, Ripple, Stellar, and Zcash.

A Year of Growing Into Crypto

The company began 2018 with a blockbuster announcement, suggesting they were moving into crypto. “Trading functionality for BTC and ETH will be released gradually in waves,” they blogged, “to Robinhood residents in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, and New Hampshire. Robinhood Crypto will be available in more states soon.”

By February, users could begin trading bitcoin core (BTC) and ether. Not too long after, the company began to inch their way into California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, and New Hampshire. It has seemed all downhill from then on for the app, as it continued to gain clusters of states.

It also wasn’t too much long ago the company was valued at over $ 5 billion following over a quarter billion dollars in venture capital funding. Some analysts insisted at least part of that eye-popping valuation was due to Robinhood embracing cryptocurrency.  

Do you think Robinhood will eventually expand into all 50 US states? Let us know in the comments below.
