We are kicking off the new year with a celebration at our new HQ at Katrínartún 4. We moved into the new place in December with the FinTech Cluster, and it is an excellent opportunity to invite you all. It is also a cause for celebration that the first Bitcoin transaction was executed eleven years ago! Tapasbarinn will prepare some excellent food for us, and drinks will also be available. We are looking forward to seeing you on the 31st of January!
