3D Hubs Announces Collaboration With BitPay

Bitcoin payment service provider BitPay, and 3D Hubs, the world’s largest network of 3D printers, have just announced a collaboration that will integrate bitcoin payments through Adyen into 3D Hubs’ network of over 13,000 privately owned 3D printers globally. The partnership follows the recent news of Adyen’s integration of bitcoin.

3D Hubs is on a mission to make 3D printing accessible to everyone by connecting all the world’s 3D printers. The 3D Hubs model decentralizes production and promotes sustainability by eliminating the need for long distance shipping. Today, the 3D Hubs network is providing over one billion people with access to a 3D printer within 10 miles of their home.

3D printing began in the early 80s as a form of rapid prototyping. The original 3D printer, invented by Chuck Hull, involved using UV beams to solidify layers of liquid photopolymer in a vat. Since then, 3D printing has rapidly evolved, and 3D printers can now create products in a whole range of materials including plastics, resins, metals, ceramics, and even food. In fact, you can now create just about anything you can dream of.

This partnership connects bitcoin a decentralized currency to 3D Hubs’ decentralized manufacturing network, further strengthening the global movement towards decentralized industry.

3D Hubs is world’s largest and fastest growing network of 3D printers. By making 3D printing locally accessible to everyone 3D Hubs is changing the way products are being manufactured and distributed. Today the network is providing over one Billion people with access to a 3D printer within 10 miles of their home.

BitPay is the global leader in bitcoin payment solutions with offices throughout North America, Europe, and South America. The company has raised over $32 million from top investors including Index Ventures, Founders Fund, and Sir Richard Branson.
