BitPay's Amsterdam office.

BitPay’s Amsterdam office.

In a new post on the BitPay blog, the Atlanta-based bitcoin payment processor gave an inside view of their just-finished Amsterdam digs. The company is currently involved in a major push into the rapidly growing European market, having experienced a massive growth spurt in merchant adoption in the last year. BitPay claims to have seen a 1,900% increase in merchant partnerships since 2013, with some 11,000 businesses currently on its roster.

With a rapidly rising profile in Europe, it’s only natural that BitPay have the a professional, upscale headquarters to court new clients. As the post explained:

We can start calling Amsterdam home and are happy to be a part of the ongoing economic revitalization of this neighborhood. Our new 2,500 sq. ft. space on Herengracht includes room for 40 people (and has an indefinite lease). It also includes space for businesses and individuals to learn about bitcoin and our vision for the future. … Our new office has been developed to reflect our company’s culture and includes open plan seating, collaborative meeting spaces, and a glass and steel meeting room with vintage banking furniture. The building is especially important to us because the complex was formerly the seat of power for the Deutsche Bank and similar trust and banking companies. In the very place where bankers decided to charge small businesses the highest transaction fees, we will work to offer all businesses a payment option without transaction fees.”

The office also includes a “dedicated bitcoin workspace” usable by members of the bitcoin community, harkening back to BitPay’s own roots in a shared office at the Atlanta Tech Village. The space will also be used for a variety of bitcoin-related events.
