wow Subway? Surprised by that one, I thought big companies would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into accepting Bitcoins.

Subway is a franchise, every Subway is its own buisnes with a licensing contract.

Hope more company's will see the bright future of bitcoin.

This is really good news, even though it's only small and local, if more people pick this up it will mean a wider adoption of bitcoin !

Given Russia has had not one but two currency crises in the last 20 years, this makes eminent sense

Unstable nations with poor track records of managing inflation are the core use case for BTC after all

"BTC 0.01953 Footlongs!" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

You sure of that?

ETA: In case you can't read the Cyrillic alphabet - Москва is Cyrillic for Moskva, which is the Russian name for Moscow.

"Footlongs now only 1.95 nBTC!"

People will change denominations. Houses will likely not be referenced in price as 22BTC, more like 220,000 nBTC (nano). We love big numbers and hate decimals.

Wherever you live, you lack reading comprehension, even in your own language, because I think a chain of restaurants knows where their own franchises are.

As Lollaskates pointed out, this isn't a Bitcoin problem, it's a marketing one.

Try "20 mil footlongs!" where mil is short for millibitcoin(s)/mBTC.  The market may prefer "millies", "millibits", or "bitmil" instead but a popular name for the unit will emerge.

I maintain that BTC has been a horrible unit almost all year and have only used it myself to explain what mBTC means.  Indeed people seemed to be much happier with the BTC unit in early 2010 than they are today which suggests that even uBTC would be friendlier than BTC at this point.

Also, google streetview seems to have managed to photograph a Subway near Moscow.

There is some suggestion this may be the Subway branch in question, but whether or not it is, surely you're not going to claim that Google is somehow in on this fake?

Ok, I stay corrected. Do you suggest I visit that place and try to pay with Bitcoin?

Well, I'm not sure if anyone has confirmed that this really is the right Subway (assuming this is real).  I got that from this article: http://www.coindesk.com/subway-sandwich-russia-bitcoin-payments/

Should I start a BTC collection campaign to find out exactly?
