A trendy downtown Las Vegas cafe is slated to trial bitcoin payments on Tuesday in attempts to see if it will be a payment system that ends up working out for them.
This information comes from this Reddit post submitted Monday afternoon.
It’s going down at the Gold Spike on Las Vegas Boulevard. Highly-rated, the business is owned by Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com.
More specifically, the test is taking place during a bitcoin meet-up that starts at 7PM tomorrow evening.
It could pan out to be a good thing for the cafe, and the submitted of the above-mentioned Reddit post urges enthusiasts to bring every one they know.
The question is: will Gold Spike ultimately adopt bitcoin payments? In theory, doing so could save them money on expensive processing fees, but that would require customers to actually use it.
The trial is likely to attract a good number of bitcoin customers (it is a bitcoin meet-up after all), but they key will be whether or not they return to make food purchases.
It’s unclear as to whether or not the trial will continue beyond the meet-up.
Time will tell, of course. We’ll keep our eye on it.
