About Us and our plans

Having seen the growth of Bitcoin over the past 10 years CryptoBates Group 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.

CryptoBates Groups 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.

Read on below to find out more about how Satoshi's Place will operate:

Satoshi's Place Ltd (Company Number 14247826) has been setup to manage our Food & Drink business, with its goal to generate an income to ensure we can keep operating and pay the bills. Currently the founder (Adam) is the sole director of Satoshi's Place Ltd and if Satoshi's Place Ltd does make a profit then 100% of Adams profits will be donated to Satoshi's Place charity to help it achieve it's goals. Satoshi's Place Ltd will seek investment in the near future with the aim to help secure its current operation, to help build its framework for other potential sites and build its roadmap.

Satoshi's Place Charity will be driven with the goals of educating and onboarding users into the Bitcoin space. We hope to achieve this in many ways, but the main focus will be via dedicated onboarding workshops and experiences at our hub. We hope to showcase Bitcoin as a payment system via the Lightning network and IRL use cases.
