Here’s something for our friends in New York City.
The Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling interactive demonstration / exhibition of antiques and inventions that inspire innovation and creativity, eliciting learning from the past to create a better future.
The event will be taking place at the Bitcoin Center on Thursday, June 12th starting at 6:30 pm prior to the showcasing of a Satoshi Square live bitcoin trading session.
According to the Center, the exhibit will feature The Museum of Interesting Things’ History of Money and Invention. This collection is made up of mathematical and monetary themed objects, which will allow visitors to “put finance and economics in context.”
“The exhibition will combine money and math with invention, science, and technology. Visitors to the exhibit will be able to experience what life was like before you could just pull out your tiny mobile phone to calculate and purchase, for example, a cup of coffee or digital currencies like Bitcoin,” says Denny Daniel, curator and founder of The Museum of Interesting Things.
Pieces such as the Otis King Calculator (a type of calculator invented in the 1600s) and the Brandt Automatic Cashier, a 100-key change dispenser invented in 1894.
“We’re delighted that The Museum of Interesting Things has chosen Bitcoin Center NYC as the place to exhibit its custom History of Money and Invention collection,” said Bitcoin Center NYC founder Nick Spanos. “With the center here and many more such firms coming, New York is now the place where the past and future of money intersect. This makes the partnership between The Museum of Interesting Things and Bitcoin Center NYC all the more appropriate.”
Bitcoin Center NYC is located on Broad Street in Manhattan’s financial district, just 100 feet from the New York Stock Exchange.
