In Case You Missed It: Bitcoin Center NYC Featured In CNBC Documentary "Bitcoin Uprising"

Bitcoin Center NYC, New York City’s only brick-and-mortar local bitcoin trading institution dedicated to the further adoption of Bitcoin, is prominently featured in CNBC’s online documentary “Bitcoin Uprising” including its allied segment “Behind bitcoin: An avid group tries to spread word.”

The informative 30 minute long segment takes an objective standpoint to the Bitcoin revolution by placing the focus on the heart of the revolution - New York City's Bitcoin Center.

Wether Bitcoin is a digital gold rush or a tool empowering dark web, the question of its future as a leap forward in internet technology has yet to be answered.

CNBC's Mary Thompson takes an in-depth look at this emerging digital currency by speaking to the bitcoin faithful, a close-knit group of tech geniuses, finance gurus, and free thinkers from all walks of life converging at Bitcoin Center NYC.

The Bitcoin Price Falls due to Concerns with China
