New York, NY – Bitcoin Center NYC, the city’s only brick-and-mortar institution dedicated to the further adoption of Bitcoin, announced today that it is partnering with Coinality and Plug and Play Tech Center on the first East Coast Bitcoin Job Fair .
The event will occur on Saturday, June 28th from noon to 5:00 p.m. at the center’s 40 Broad Street headquarters in the heart of the Financial District, 100 feet from the NYSE. Admission for jobseekers and visitors is free, and media are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served.
Bitcoin Center NYC and its external partners seek digital asset, fintech, and ancillary business employers from in and outside New York to exhibit in the 4,500-square-foot space. As a service to leading edge innovators of all sizes, special pricing is available for employers from startup level to marquee businesses so that all talent seekers may interface with the workforce’s best and brightest.
For information on Platinum, Gold, and Silver sponsorship-level exhibition space, please contact Austin E. Alexander using firstname.lastname@example.org for businesses of six or more employees and Alex Gallagher using email@example.com for businesses of five or less employees.
“We’re grateful to Coinality and Plug and Play Tech Center for the opportunity to partner on a project that employers and jobseekers will find invaluable. The fintech marketplace is quickly evolving and Bitcoin is a key catalyst in that rapid transformation. A determinant of how viable the industry will be a month or a decade from now is available talent and this event will set in motion many new employer-jobseeker relationships,” said Bitcoin Center NYC founder Nick Spanos.
Mr. Spanos also praised Bitcoin for its economic development potential.
“Absent from the often-colorful storyline on Bitcoin is the technology’s job-creating potential and by definition this event will help alter that narrative,” added Mr. Spanos.
Event details are as follows. Time is Eastern.

Coinality is a job board where employers and job seekers can connect for job opportunities that pay in digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, and yes, even Dogecoin. Jobs range from one-time to full-time and negotiations are handled independently between the two parties. Since launching in September 2013, well over 2,000 qualified candidates have applied for jobs that pay in bitcoin on Coinality. We have also received over 750 submitted jobs and more than 250 resumes from high-quality talent who want to work for coins. Coinality is self-funded and supported entirely by donations. All submitted jobs are reviewed by humans of reasonably sound judgement to ensure that job opportunities on Coinality are real. Coinality was a key figure in organizing the world’s first Bitcoin Job Fair. The event featured over 30 bitcoin employers and over 400 jobs seekers. Fun fact: the Coinality.com domain name and hosting account was paid for in Bitcoin, thanks to NameCheap.
