A FairSpot is a physical space for FairCoop-related activities. The first one opened in 2017, in a small rented shop in Exarcheia, a popular, central, and very free neighbourhood of Athens. This was the original idea, but any given FairSpot can differ very much from the others, and in this way adapt to specific local needs or cultures. Overall the idea of creating a FairSpot as a central point for a Local Node is becoming a part of the larger methodology for implanting Local Nodes in many different conditions. In offering an integrated environment, which can serve as a prefigurative demonstration of the various services and ideas present in our ecosystem, establishing a FairSpot is a useful option to consider.

So this article will attempt a general overview of that knotty theme, of all the various implications of the legality of crypto-currencies, what does it mean or imply, both for governments and for people. First we should begin by discussing crypto-currencies in general, and then later moving on to our specific situation at FairCoin.
