Paid for my sushi with BTC… ideas… : Bitcoin
Had a wonderful dinner at Crudos in Wynwood (Miami). Saw the bitcoin accepted right here sticker on the door so I requested to pay with BTC. The server was a bit of nervous and confused, appeared he hadn’t completed that earlier than however was type of conscious of it. He went and grabbed his supervisor’s cellphone (possibly the proprietor?) and handed me the QR code. Sent fee plus tip.. zero affirmation transaction… completed. Got me considering….
1.) Someone talked about the homeowners are Venezuelan. I am unable to verify, but it surely made me really feel good that probably they’ve household again in VZ that might someway profit from BTC. USD cannot go there simply. BTC is all-terrain.
2.) This was my first “meatspace” BTC transaction. It was a bit of bit unusual simply sending BTC to some supervisor man’s pockets on his cellphone (that went into display screen lock whereas I fiddled with my pockets). I imply, its superb and I perceive it’s a uncommon incidence, however are there some branded wallets on the market or one thing that that make issues a bit extra “official”? Also, I anticipated a devoted system/ipad or one thing contemplating the servers take orders with gadgets.
three.) Lightning is required. Realistically zero conf transactions are sufficient for eating places. If I paid with a $100 invoice they would not know if it was counterfeit till I used to be lengthy gone. If I paid with bank card I may dispute the transaction a month later. Etc… But nonetheless, the dood’s pockets did not assist lightning and issues will likely be simply higher when all events know the transaction is obvious.
The pork stomach appetiaer and Crudus roll was glorious
