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.
