Tel Aviv has recently become the home of a museum dedicated to the world’s most widespread cryptocurrency. A venture called Bitcoin Change will officially open later this month in Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Street.
Besides hosting an ATM, where customers will be able to buy bitcoins using Israeli Shekels, as well as some of the world’s major currencies, including US dollars and euros, Bitcoin Change will also feature an exhibition devoted to the digital currency.
“The idea for the place came to me after trying to explain to my mother how to buy Bitcoin,” Bitcoin Change Co-Founder Avner Ziv stated.
Ziv added that the project is not politically or ideologically motivated and its only goal is to make “buying bitcoin accessible to all.” The store’s co-founder believes the notion of bitcoin is still “too complex for many people to do online” and in Israel it is mostly being done “in a way that is more like buying something on the black market.”
The museum dedicated to bitcoin will be located on the second floor of the building which earlier hosted the Israeli city’s Bauhaus Center. The showcase will feature videos and art installations about the history of bitcoin. Furthermore, the venue will also host a number of lectures about the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
