3 minute segment.

A pub in Hackney has become the first to accept cyber currency.

It's called the Bitcoin.

It's usually used on the internet. So how can this virtual money buy a real pint in the real world?

Thankfully, Nick Thatcher can explain:

Very cool article.  I have an idea.  First inter-continental "buy a round " on BTC.  If you're outside of the UK, post here an amount you'd be willing to spend (maybe 2 pints?).   Set up a pool wallet and when we have enough, get a time and date and send it to the pub.  Extra points for a live video feed and the patrons holding up a "Thanks, bitcointalk.org!" sign.  

I'll start it off with whatever the cost is for three pints at that pub.  Could JohnK or someone make a wallet for this?

Here's the pubs Facebook account.  I don't have FB but maybe someone here can contact Luke Parker to set this up.

Nice initiative, I think you might want to start a dedicated thread outside the press forum (and also on reddit) in order to have more visibility and participants.

Good idea on all counts. I'll watch for a new thread and I'll commit for three pints also.

Started a thread in the "Services" (where else?) section.

Lets post a "pint" count there.  When we're ready we can do a "board name / location / pint amount" list.
