Bitcoin in Chicago

Chicago is a city of rapid growth. From its early days as a humble trading post to becoming a major commercial center and one of the most well-known cities in the USA, Chicago is a massive city with a lot of opportunities.

Chicago is the third largest city in the country by population and the second most significant financial city after New York. With each new decade, new technologies arise to innovate and change the way we interact and do business. One of these technologies is cryptocurrency.

The Windy City has many perfect conditions for cryptocurrency to develop. Illinois supports Bitcoin technologies and is optimistic about the future of cryptocurrency in the state. The advancement of Bitcoin ATMs in Chicago have contributed to the positive atmosphere surrounding Blockchain currencies. Many cryptocurrency conferences are even being held regularly in Chicago.

Since trading has been such a huge part of Chicago’s past, it only makes sense that it would advance into cryptocurrency trading in the future. That’s why cryptocurrency conventions and start-ups are abundant in the city.

For instance, the Chicago Blockchain Center was founded to connect the city’s Blockchain community and to host talk shows and lectures from Bitcoin industry leaders. Bloq is a Chicago cryptocurrency startup that helps companies build Blockchain applications and test new Blockchain technologies in their lab. Then there’s Omega Grid, a fascinating company that uses cryptocurrency to let utility companies manage peer-to-peer energy sales while homes that have excess energy can sell that power on their Omega Grid Market to consumers to buy at rates far below wholesale price.

There’s a whole world of technology opening up with cryptocurrency meaning Chicago has a wildly exciting future within the financial technology sector. So, if you live in the city, or you’re in Chicago for a visit, now is the time to jump into the digital currency world and all it has to offer. Cryptocurrency doesn’t have to be confusing. At Bitcoin Depot, we want to show you how easy it is to access.
