The Park, a local coworking space powered by Access Ventures, is proud to announce that it will begin accepting bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment for memberships. The Park is the first coworking space and the first business in Louisville to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency payments.
Located in Shelby Park, The Park is a members-only shared workspace and coworking community in Louisville. The Park is dedicated to ending all of the frustrations of working the old way in an office. It is a space that caters to passionate people and is an open place for people of all kinds. Working in community inspires innovation. The Park is a place for change-makers to find community with others that desire to impact their community around them and was created to support people building a better world.
As a way of continued support and innovation,The Park is now happy to offer its members a new way to pay. Park members will now be able to pay to purchase an annual membership in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin or Bitcoin Cash. “We are excited to offer our members more options and lead the way for coworking spaces across the city and country,” says Dani Harris, Community Manager for The Park.
“We are the first coworking space and, as far as we know, the first business in Louisville to accept cryptocurrency,” says TJ Abood, Investment Partner at Access Ventures, the organization that owns The Park. “Blockchain technology is changing the way business is done all over the world and we believe it has the power to improve lives. This is an easy win for The Park and for our members.”
Members will now be able to receive a 10% discount for an annual part-time or full-time membership when they pay in cryptocurrency. This would be a savings of over $75 for a part-time membership and $125 for full-time. “We want to be a space that is known for innovation and doing things a little differently. Whatever we can do to help serve our coworking community better and push the ball forward on accessibility and innovation in the space, we are happy to do,” says Dani Harris.
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to begin paying for my membership using cryptocurrency. It sounds mundane, but it is a powerful feeling when you are able to purchase something digitally without having to rely on a third party such as PayPal or Stripe,” says Ari Blum, Park member and founder of RadTech Boot Camp.
The Park has also been a continual host to the monthly Louisville Bitcoin Meetup which has the goal of fostering an environment that will help individuals and small business get started with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The next Louisville Bitcoin Meetup will be held next Wednesday, March 21 at 7:00 pm at The Park,1229 S. Shelby St. Anyone interested in learning more about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is encouraged to attend.
