Bitcoins Traded on Wall Street to Usher In 2014

Spontaneous trading erupted earlier this evening at the official launch of the NYC Bitcoin Center. Hundreds of eager cryptocurrency enthusiasts gathered to usher in the New Year and celebrate the grand opening of the center, the first of its kind in the world. Keynote speaker Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas shocked the crowd by taping a QR-code to his suit, accepting Bitcoin donations for his 2014 Senate campaign, the first U.S. Senate candidate to officially embrace the cryptocurrency.
Veteran New York entrepreneur Nick Spanos, one of the center’s co-founders, rose to address the crowd shortly after midnight, and was greeted by the boisterous shouts. “I’ll pay $700 for one Bitcoin!,” yelled an enthusiastic twenty-something. Within moments, similar cheers rebounded throughout the hall.
Within moments, dozens of individuals were holding up their smartphones, their QR codes poised to receive Bitcoin. “$800!” shouted another. “I’ll pay $850 in Dogecoin,” screamed to another, to laughs. And so, a mere 100 feet from the doors of the New York Stock Exchange, where since 1817, traders have gathered before the Big Board to trade US dollars for stocks, tonight, at 40 Broad Street, hundreds of Bitcoin traders brought that tradition into the 21st century.
The NYC Bitcoin Center, located at 40 Broad Street, is the premier educational institution dedicated to promoting awareness of competing cryptocurrencies and aims to be a hub for innovation in the financial tech space. Founded in 2013, the center’s board consists of leading entrepreneurs, policy makers, and thought leaders.
