Bitcoin Center NYC CTO Andrew Martin Passes Away At Age 21

The Bitcoin Center in New York City has been one of the most prominent places to discuss and trade cryptocurrency every week. Over the years this location has grown out from a niche crowd to attracting people from all over the city and beyond. Andrew Martin, CTO of Bitcoin Center NYC, was one of the driving forces behind this project. Unfortunately, Andrew passed away a few weeks ago. A funeral mass will be held shortly.

Andrew Martin Passed Away Far Too Soon

The Bitcoin community is filled with people from all ages and strides of life.Young, old, veteran, novice, developers, writers, artists, and the likes, we all share the same passion for Bitcoin. Some of us decide to take things to the new level and help run a Bitcoin Center, such as the one in New York City.

Andrew Martin, a founding member of the Bitcoin Center NYC and Chief Technology Officer of this initiative, came to pass on July 21, 2016. Although the details regarding this event were not disclosed – and we can all respect that – it is sad to see a 21-year old Bitcoin enthusiast taken away from us.

Even though it has been a few weeks since Andrew’s passing, the Bitcoin Center NYC team has decided to hold a funeral mass at the Greek Orthodox St. Ignatius Loyola Church later today. Anyone who is interested in attending the event can do so, although RSVPing through the Meetup page may not be a bad idea.

It is positive to see the Bitcoin community unite and come together in these troubling times. Even though not everyone who attended the Bitcoin Center NYC may have met Andrew, everyone will appreciate him being part of making it all happen. Today will be a day for the local Bitcoin community to come together and show their support for one another.

Anyone who could attend this event should do so. The funeral mass for Andrew Martin will commence at 1 PM, and we can only hope to see some people show up. Albeit we at The Merkle never had a chance to meet Andrew in person, our prayers are with his family, friends, and loved ones during these difficult times.
