 The Bitcoin Embassy is a non-profit organization that seeks to accelerate and facilitate the adoption of Bitcoin. Located in the heart of Montreal, Quebec, the Bitcoin Embassy offices are spread over 14,000 square feet and three floors:

● On the ground floor, the Bitcoin store (currently under construction) will sell Bitcoin related merchandize and services, and will feature an educational hub.

● On the second floor, the space includes a small event venue for Bitcoin related gatherings, networking events, industry related conferences, and educational sessions.

● The third floor holds our administrative offices, including the incubator and start-up space for Bitcoin related ventures.

Ultimately, the Bitcoin Embassy will help to grow an integrated ecosystem, allowing Canada to become a destination of choice for international crypto-currency users.

Budget implementation bill would require digital currency businesses to play by FinTRAC rules

April 2nd, 2014

By: Jillian Friedman,(@jillfriedman) counsel, The Bitcoin Embassy 

In the 2014 federal budget, the Canadian government made unequivocal its concern that virtual currencies, specifically Bitcoin, are an emerging risk that threatens “Canada’s international leadership in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing”. The Government promised to introduce anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing regulations for virtual currencies and to provide FinTRAC up to $10.5 million over five years to implement these changes.
