Inside London’s First Bitcoin Co-working Space

A unique co-working space has launched in east London, offering digital currency companies the opportunity to work side-by-side in an environment designed to promote growth and innovation.

Called T15B, the space is currently occupied by staff members of seven cryptocurrency-focused companies, including bitcoin trading platform BTC.sx and Australian bitcoin wallet and exchange CoinJar.

Co-founded by Pamir Gelenbe and his wife Gulnar Hasnain, who are behind the bitcoin events series CoinSummit, T15B is located close to London’s tech hub – the so-called ‘Silicon Roundabout’.

The space accommodates a corner of the 2,300sq/m office occupied by BoldRocket, which offers support to technology companies.

The décor is very stereotypically east London – exposed brickwork, bare light fittings and visible pipes on the ceiling, paired with clean lines and a few stand-out features such as a ‘green wall’ (an entire wall covered in live plants) and a large orange rocket sculpture.

Gelenbe said he looked at a few venues in the city, but the BoldRocket office really stood out as a place in which creativity would be bolstered.
