Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] to be accepted at UK pub, extra perks offered

Sat Oct 06, 2018 4:53 pm

The mass adoption of cryptocurrencies is taking a new step with latest reports stating that Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] will be accepted at a popular pub in the United Kingdom.

BrewDog Canary Wharf, which is set to open towards the end of October 2018, released a statement to confirm that they will be accepting Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash for their products, mainly beer. The company has also stated that the first hundred customers will be given the added bonus of a cryptocurrency wallet top up. The company said:

“To celebrate, the first 100 people through the doors will score a Bitcoin Cash wallet loaded with anywhere from £12 to £100!”

This is not the first time that Bitcoin will be used to buy beer, a feat that was earlier achieved by a bar in Berlin called ROOM77.

The rapid adoption of cryptocurrency in the United Kingdom comes in the wake after Margot James, the Digital Minister of State for DCMS, spoke about Theresa May–led government’s stance on blockchain technology and its use cases. James cited the example of UK’s Financial Conduct Authority [FCA] that had an eye on blockchain technology.
