deCashed is a crypto-exclusive open-bar networking event in New York City. No cash, credit cards, checks, ACHs or wires are acceptable to purchase tickets. The entry fee is a nominal payment in a cryptocurrency, token, or NFT of your choice. Payments can be made in Bitcoin, ether, ethereum-based tokens, SOL, dogecoin, litecoin, Dai, Bitcoin Cash, USD Coin, and more. Meme coins? Sure! Shitcoins? why not!
deCashed intends to bring together fans, users, and innovators that are able to use crypto payment technology for a night of networking at The Refinery Rooftop at 63 W. 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan.
Who are we?
deCashed is powered by the deBanked team
deBanked is one of the oldest media companies to focus strictly on non-bank finance. The company launched in 2010 and deBanked was registered as a trademark in 2014. deBanked filmed a crypto segment at New York’s Blockchain Center in November 2020 and conducted an on-camera interview with Miami’s crypto-loving mayor, Francis Suarez, in February 2021. Both are available on deBanked TV. deBanked has also put on conferences in New York, Miami, San Diego, and Toronto, all focused on alternative finance.
We know crypto
deBanked inked an advertising contract in January 2015 that was priced strictly in bitcoin, making it one of the first firms to ever ink a crypto deal that had no peg to the US dollar. Bitcoin has been an acceptable method of payment ever since. The company also put its own smart contract on the ethereum blockchain in 2021, giving it the ability to mint ERC-721 NFTs. It debuted its own just-for-fun NFT collection in October, viewable on OpenSea.
deCashed founder Sean Murray first turned his laptop into a node on the bitcoin network in 2014. Having enjoyed the olden days of mining with a USB stick and in-person crypto trading, Murray was more drawn to the non-bank payment aspect of the system.
Murray was also in the top 5% of contributors to the ConstitutionDAO, the Decentralized Autonomous Organization that made headlines for raising $43 million to try and buy a copy of the United States Constitution at Sotheby’s. Murray’s participation was noted in The New Yorker magazine on account of his having gone to Sotheby’s dressed as George Washington on the day of the auction.
One thing that has remained consistent in Murray’s crypto journey is his lack of interest in whether or not the value of the coins go up or down. “The price has never mattered to me,” he says. “The ability to operate and move money completely independent of the banking system is what makes crypto so powerful. It’s about being de-banked and de-cashed and still being able to carry on business.”
