Arnhem world's most Bitcoin friendly  city located in Netherlands, you can buy everything with bitcoin in it.

Arnhem Bitcoinstad" ('Bitcoin City') as they call it, came into existence when three Bitcoin enthusiasts decided they wanted to be able to spend bitcoins in their own town. They went on a mission to convince local bars and restaurant owners to accept bitcoin payments. At the opening at May 28th 2014, 15 places accepted bitcoins. Since then, more and more shop owners joined them so you can buy a greater diversity of products and pay with Bitcoin in Arnhem.

What we will have next, Bitcoin Country?
What other Bitcoin friendly places you would recommend?
There is this swiss city Zug, http://www.coindesk.com/swiss-city-bitcoin-payments-government-services/ that will accept bitcoin for government services may be categorized as bitcoin city.
There are other bitcoin friendly cities like San Francisco,New York, Amsterdam etc.
As soon as these cities go full bitcoin, others will follow and we have then bitcoin country.

glad to see there are many more cities that accept bitcoin for the payments and i think soon we can see that other cities or countries will accept bitcoin too. i agree that big country need to accept bitcoin first and then the middle country and small country can follow their step to accept bitcoin and we can see bitcoin is using in many countries.

I do think that with time more country will come up with new innovative ideas.If more states starts accepting bitcoin then we would call them a bitcoin country. I really wanted to see that happening to my country and i am not sure how long i have to wait to see such a thing.

Arnhem world's most Bitcoin friendly  city located in Netherlands, you can buy everything with bitcoin in it.

Arnhem Bitcoinstad" ('Bitcoin City') as they call it, came into existence when three Bitcoin enthusiasts decided they wanted to be able to spend bitcoins in their own town. They went on a mission to convince local bars and restaurant owners to accept bitcoin payments. At the opening at May 28th 2014, 15 places accepted bitcoins. Since then, more and more shop owners joined them so you can buy a greater diversity of products and pay with Bitcoin in Arnhem.

What we will have next, Bitcoin Country?
What other Bitcoin friendly places you would recommend?
This is very enthusiastic news! who is behind all this and how it happened? was it a result of government initiative or was it just a community efforts? I would like to see how it worked so that other cities can follow the suit.
For you, who wondering how it started? Whos behind this? Another user had shared the link https://www.arnhembitcoinstad.nl/
It was started when 3 bitcoiners want to spend Bitcoin as easy as spend fiat money.
"Arnhem Bitcoinstad" ('Bitcoin City') as they call it, came into existence when three Bitcoin enthusiasts decided they wanted to be able to spend bitcoins in their own town. They went on a mission to convince local bars and restaurant owners to accept bitcoin payments. At the opening at May 28th 2014, 15 places accepted bitcoins. Since then, more and more shop owners joined them so you can buy a greater diversity of products and pay with Bitcoin in Arnhem.
An amazing effort and work through years, right?
Moreover, bitcoiners offered special discounts to pay using bitcoin.

When paying with bitcoins: 10% discount on all sandwiches and drinks
Mo Lon: Kortestraat 25
    
10% discount on wine tasting events! Next to that: if you can show your studentcard you'll also get 10% discount on wines in the store if you pay with Bitcoin!
Robbers en Van den Hoogen: Velperweg 23
    
When paying with bitcoins: Second Whopper for free! (excl. bacon and cheese)
Burger King: Weverstraat 4

What's most amazing is that they've achieved this with only 3 people. The idea itself is also very easy for other people to copy, so imagine what would happen if other people try to convince stores in other cities around the world.
Initiatives like this should really be publicized more around the Bitcoin community.

It's also neat that they've included usage statistics on their website, but it also shows that Bitcoin isn't that popular as a payment system, so far less than €10.000 revenue in total per month.

This shows how much power bitcoin enthusiasts have and how much they can achieve.
"They convinced local stores to accept Bitcoin" - it doesn't seem like they needed much convincing. Most business owners don't know Bitcoin and don't know the benefits of using it. Nobody comes to their store asking to pay in Bitcoin and everyone pays in fiat, so why change anything? We need people to educate people and convince them to try it out, just like these guys did.

I live in the Netherlands and I am definitely going to see this town knowing this. And I really like that these guys did this.
I hope that more places do this and that we can have an entire country that accepts Bitcoin as a way to pay.

All of us bitcoin users do really like for bitcoin to be used on our country without the need of exchanging it first to fiat. Dont worry we would really come to that point since adoption is on its way but for now we would still need to exchange our bitcoin before we could able to use it.

Hats off to these enthusiasts who exert so much effort in making such a thing possible. Imagine having over a hundred merchants accept bitcoin in a community. And the good thing is they are not stopping there because they know that the potential for bitcoin to be mass adopted is very promising, all the more in Netherlands which is known as a bitcoin-friendly country. What’s also good to note is that these merchants are continuously offering perks and discounts each time you use bitcoin as payment. That should be enough to encourage bitcoin users to go ahead and spend their bitcoins more often. I wish that maybe a year from now, I could say the same for my own city.

i hope its not too long to see there are other country is applying bitcoin for the payment so we can spend our bitcoin like in that city. i am sure bitcoin user will waiting this and they are really exciting and interesting if there are many store offline out there could accept bitcoin especially if they can see it in their city.
