The association is a non-profit organization (Verein) that was founded on October 3rd, 2013 in Zürich with the purpose of promoting digital currencies.
Educating the public about Bitcoin, providing answers to common legal questions and to form an active community of enthusiasts with regular meetings and events.
Bitcoin has the potential not only to revolutionize online payments, but also to give control over their financial transactions and assets back to individuals, and to serve as an asset with exceptionally strong property guarantees. Furthermore, its technology has the potential to serve as a platform for countless other services that can benefit from decentralized consensus and cryptographically secure tracking of property. As an Association, we want to pave the way for Bitcoin to flourish and unfold its full potential.
