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.

Are you interested in being a part of our development? We have a telegram group to discuss the next steps and ideas for the space. Get in touch to be sent the invite link.

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 our founder is the sole director of Satoshi's Place Ltd and if Satoshi's Place Ltd does make a profit then 100% of Adam's profits will be donated to Satoshi's Place Charity to help it achieve its goals.

Satoshi's Place Charity will be driven with the goals of Showcasing, Creating, Educating & Supporting the world of Bitcoin in the UK and be formed as an Official Charity in the UK (Wish us luck!). More details will be added here once we have filed with the Charity commission.

NOTE: Satoshi's Place Ltd & Satoshi's Place Charity will be separate legal entities.

Satoshi's Place Labs will be focused on delivering workshops based around Bitcoin / Lightning electronics. From nodes to tickers, POS systems, Bitcoin switches (Covering the amazing work by Ben Arc) and more. Some of the workshops will be aimed towards Key stage 2 upwards, these will be co-hosted by the youngest of the Sastoshi's Place Crew (10 Years old).

Fund Raising

Initial fund raising will be focused around Satoshi's Place Ltd with the aim to raise the funds which will help us secure a Central Manchester based location with a 3-year plan in place. We are accepting both Bitcoin & Fiat donations for this:

For Fiat donations, We have chosen GoFundMe to set up the raise, Checkout our GoFundMe page here for more information: GoFundMe

For Bitcoin donations, we will be accepting donations to our address shown below in our Support Us section.

Lightning donations to this address: we will be accepting donations to our address (Shown as a QR code) shown below in our Support Us section.

NOTE: Even if our Raise isn't successful for Satoshi's Place Ltd this DOESN'T affect our plans for / with Satoshi's Place Charity

Once Satoshi's Place Charity has been approved by the Charity commission then more details will be added here on any proposed fund raise.

Before we made the desicion to start a Fund Raise with GoFundMe we were exploring Bitcoin focused Fund Raising platforms and setup a profile on the awesome Geyser platform! This awesome platform is built on Bitcoin and we love it! Our aim with Geyser was to hit some of our smaller milestones with a range of rewards for Contributors. For reference here is our Geyser.Fund page External Link .
