The incorporators of the shop are Derrick J. Freeman and Steven Zeiler. They have explained that the visitors of the store can pay for commodities with cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. In a case they don’t have cryptocurrency, the salesman helps them download and finance their first wallet. They check using an Ipad in a Square stand processing New Hampshire-based free point-of-sale software Anypay.

Portsmouth of New Hampshire hasn’t been broadly known as a hotbed of crypto activity. It just may be, and it probably has anything to do with the Free State Project (FSP). Jason Sorens, Yale doctoral student wrote in general about a secessionist movement of the most personal sort. It led evolving into asking 20,000 freedom-loving people to create a political force in the state of New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state.

A large portion of the people who moved to New Hampshire in search of freedom are bitcoin users. Cryptocurrencies affords us the opportunity to not just withdraw our support for values we detest, but to actively support coins whose communities actively embrace certain values we share. It’s amazing, and anyone not yet benefiting from participation in these communities is missing out.

Being an activist and content maker in the liberty world, Mr. Freeman gained a tip in bitcoin after visiting a popular radio program, Free Talk Live.

I liked that this new kind of money was being circulated among my friends. I liked that it afforded me the opportunity to use a money that wasn’t created and controlled by the Federal Reserve. I like that it empowers people like me to opt for a more peaceful world by withdrawing support for empire-building and endless wars.

Launched the last year Summer, the Free State Bitcoin Shoppe is open seven days a week. Although it’s obviously a profit-making enterprise, Mr. Freeman notes it also begs as an educational platform.
