Having seen the growth of Bitcoin over the past 10 years CryptoBatesGroup think it is time to see a UK location which will help bring together the community on a more regular basis with the aim of helping onboard and educate interested folk and create a space for great minds to connect

CryptoBatesGroups network has expanded rapidly since their first UK event in 2016 and it'll be great to see our dedicated groups collaborating and supporting the new generations of Bitcoiners.
