Many a liberty activist have made a pilgrimage to Twin Mountain Country Store as it has long been known as the only place in NH one can buy gasoline with bitcoin. It’s also a shrine to liberty – the store is decked out with various liberty propaganda and signage. Looking at all of it would take some time. It’s a fun trip to make when in the White Mountains and now you have one more reason: it’s the third public location of a Bitcoin Vending Machine in New Hampshire! (Keene and Manchester being the others.)
Store owner Bill Bochynski decided to install the “General Bytes” brand BVM, the same type found at Murphy’s Taproom in Manchester after seeing the unit in operation there. He cited the Keene BVM, operated by the Shire Free Church, as his original inspiration for adding a BVM to the North Country. When asked for comment, he quoted Black Swan author Nassim Taleb:
Bitcoin is the beginning of something great: a currency without a government, something necessary and imperative.
Bochynski thinks its important to bring easy access to bitcoin to the impoverished North Country, where the financial freedom bitcoin can bring could have a real positive impact.
You can visit the Twin Mountain BVM seven-days-a-week from 7am to Midnight. NH is still the only place in New England to feature a Bitcoin Vending Machine open to the public – and now we have three! NH’s bitcoin community just keeps getting better – when are you moving here?
