In late April we learned that Europe was slated to receive its first bitcoin center of sorts with the advent of La Maison du Bitcoin, or the House of Bitcoin, in Paris.
Today — as planned — the center has opened.
Located in the heart of the city (specifically 35 Rue du Caire), the center’s overall objective is to kickstart the crypto-currency movement in France.
To do this, La Maison will be host to a number of bitcoin meetups and other events. In addition, the 220-square foot property will be used as a start-up incubator for new businesses in the bitcoin realm.
The pricing for businesses to make use of the office space goes accordingly: 10€ per day, 50€ per week, and 200€ per month.
The center is even home to a bitcoin miner and ATM.
If you’re interested is visiting La Maison, they are open Monday through Friday from 9AM – 7PM.
Of course, this isn’t the first of its kind. At the start of this year, the United States received its own bitcoin center of sorts in Manhattan — a mere one hundred feet from the New York Stock Exchange. Dubbed the Bitcoin Center NYC, the location holds meetups, live trading, and has even become a retail space for bitcoin mining hardware.
