"So what is Bitcoin?" - Our time at #CES2014 in photos

CES week has come to a close, and this year Blockchain was there!

We shacked up with BitPay & Butterfly Labs. Aside from us three, the only other Bitcoin company we know that had a presence at CES2014 was KNC Miner. It was a small space, but we were all extremely excited to speak to newbies and enthusiasts alike. We took photos and have some fun tidbits to share with you! If you couldn’t make it to CES, we hope this gives you a glimpse into how much fun we had sharing Bitcoin with the tech world.

We’d like to thank the folks at BitPay & Butterfly Labs for helping make our first year at CES so awesome. The growth Bitcoin has seen in the latter half of 2013 is only a shimmer of evidence how much it will grow in 2014. Thank you to everyone who came out to say hello to us! The conversations we shared with CESers have us so excited about next year’s event – we can assure you Bitcoin will have a larger presence in 2015.
