Bitcoin prides itself as a decentralized digital currency, meaning that no single entity controls it. Instead, a community of developers, miners and enthusiasts work in tandemto ensure everything runs smoothly.
But now,a Bitcoin-loving husband and wife aim to take this collaborative community to a whole new level bysettingup a workplace that houses Bitcoin companies. Co-founded by Pamir Gelenbe and wife Gulnar Hasnain, T15B is located near Londons techhub, the Silicon roundabout. Its situated at the corner of Bold Rockets office, a registered trademark of the Capital Markets Company (UK) Ltd, a company that helps technology companies make a difference in todays world.
T15B currently houses companies such as Bitcoin trading platform btc.sx, gold to Bitcoin exchange market Bullion Bitcoin Limited, point-of-sale Bitcoin processing solutions XBTerminal and four other Bitcoin companies.
Though T15B aims to house more Bitcoin companies, its also very strict and does not allow just anybody to join the community.
We dont want to compromise on quality. We have a selection committee and review applications on a rolling basis. We are looking for serious entrepreneurs and individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to the virtual currency space, Gelenbe explains.
So far, those who have been fortunate enough to pass the screening are quite pleased with what T15B offers, as working with like-minded people in the same industryis both inspiring and motivating.
Being surrounded by people working to disrupt the world of finance, through bitcoin, is incredibly motivating, Joe Lee, founder and CEO of BTC.sx, said.
This initiative by Gelenbe and his wife are seen as a step to further put London in the prime spot for cryptocurrency innovation.
We have several of the best bitcoin startups based here now, the Bank of England and government seem to be changing policies to support the growth. We are in a very strong position to succeed, Aleks Nowak, co-founder of XBTerminal, added.
