A Las Vegas news show has featured a segment on an adult entertainment venue in the city which enables its dancers to get payments from clients directly via bitcoin transfers.

Well I guess these developments had to happen. I just hope the tattoo is accurate. Smiley

If it happened, it simply translates to using bitcoin for all entertainment services
in the environment.People may now do hotel booking also, watch matches, go to clubs,
and other entertainment varieties.I see a tomorrow when bitcoin shall use its decentralized
feature to gain relevance in all fields of life than the centralized counterpart fiat money
controlled by the laws and constraints of policies.

My comment when I saw this is that they should really have the QR code point to a redirectable URL.  If their address was compromised for some reason, it'd be a pain in the ass (perhaps literally) to have it changed.

Hey, realsteve, here's a pic for you:

I wonder how many punters use this as a pretence to take photos rather than donating coins.

Now when will we see a bunch of strippers chained together, and calling themselves the blockchain.

This is indeed good news!

I imagine a world where commercials on TV will have bitcoin QR codes that you can simply scan with your phone (like using a remote) and purchase things on "TV discount" promo.

If anything, this shows the potential bitcoin and crypto can offer to the vast industries because it shows how you can get more "call to action" purchases via many media -- TV, internet ads, mobile videos, in-game ads.

Heck, even a poster near a subway/bus stop can have a crypto QR code that consumers can swipe with their smartphone!

It actually furthers the agenda America has of "wanting it now!" So people can simply swipe at the sky with their phones to pay for things they'll get that instant. No logging into PayPal, no credit cards, no visiting websites! Just swipe, and voila, the product is yours!

It's instant gratification on both sides. Companies get an irreversible payment, consumers (hopefully) get instant delivery or the promise of such of their purchase.

As security precaution, they will need to use different address for every transaction. That sounded painful. So they need to change tattoo every day after every night of a transaction. Painful.

Vegas was a great city and to have this adds to the Vegas life experience. I was wondering what will happen if they need to change the address for some reason?. I think they need to do the tattoo again. Even the greatest tattoo artist won't be able to edit QR code on skin. Looks good on the strippers though. It adds personality and attracts customers. Great idea but the stripper should look also.

This is actually a genius idea born in Vegas!
Hear me out:
- Spending just got a lot easier, scan the QR code and the money is there;
- The gratitude of money gets diminished because there is no objective feel of dollars (much like credit cards);
- That is a whole lot of promotion and marketing at itself, media just grabbed the story like crazy;
- Now it became impossible to clear the floor for guys or rethrow the papers -> more money for strippers.

But:
- Less shabang;
- Looks cool at first because its new, but later on it will get boring;
- Strip clubs get cyber-played - that is - weird;

Final answer: It wont hold for very long, a great way to promote though

I think these are one of the problems the Strippers will have to face but qr codes could be printed on their clothing too as a temporay solution to this, hope cashing out will not be a problem for them.

In the article it says that they are using temporary QR tattoos. Changing them is not a problem.

But it is always great to see new and innovative ways to use Bitcoin. There are dangers too. When you are doing the payment with your phone, someone could take your phone and empty your wallet.....

Well, the same thing can happen when you get your wallet out of the pocket. Someone can steal it and run away. That's why you don't carry around all the money you have  earned during your whole life.

I'm guessing they would use their ankles so that they can hang them over the stage.  Or, you might see them on either side of your face  Wink

But, this could actually be a pain for the guy/girl just waiting for a lap dance if the network is slow.  Imagine just sitting there waiting on the block confirmations...there is never a better time to implement the lightning network fully  Grin

Incredible idea. Simple yet revolutionary. This alone is why crypto will innovate and reach mainstream adoption eventually. Might take a hundred years, but when society is ready to evolve financially from its current slavery, it will.

This post alone make my day! But hey, is that a real woman?

Saw the news through one of the post in 9gag and I'm speechless. How many patrons of that strip club that goes often and are requesting to pay with Bitcoins which prompts them to take such action?

Yes, payment through debit or credit cards can be trace. But, spreading this kind of news to the public? It will make wives more suspicious on their crypto enthusiast husband. Banks will tighten their KYC. Why not just pay and stick with cash? It's not traceable and they can just bury their income on some stash or better buy a safe vault.
