Satoshi Square Becomes Gathering Spot for Bitcoin Traders on Wall Street (Video)

Every Monday night, Bitcoin traders holds a meet up called Satoshi Square, named in honor of Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious creator of Bitcoin, in which participants exchange virtual currencies for U.S.dollars. Previously, these meetings took place in a Whole Foods market on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

"I was in college, and now instead of going to college I'm doing Bitcoin," says Louis Parker, an entrepreneur who has set up shop at the Bitcoin Center NYB, cavernous storefront in lower Manhattan's financial district that's fast become a central gathering spot for New York City's cryptocurrency traders, programmers, and enthusiasts. "There's no college class on Bitcoin, except in Cyprus, and I wasn't ready to move there," he says.

Jim Epstein and Naomi Brockwell of Reason.com explore the new Bitcoin Center at a time when more mainstream establishments have begun to embrace the mysterious anonymous cybercurrency as are a number of online gambling sites.
