The BTCitCoin BTCirdsNest


i live quite far outside of London and it is VERY hard to find places that accept BTCitcoin. i had heard of a stall in near Silicon Roundabout but when i went up to London i couldn't find it. Sad  once i had given up i went to visit some friends in deptford and they suggested we went to get some food at the local Pub. As i went to pay my friend said to me "shame you cant pay with BTCitCoin eh!" the teller overheard and replied with "OH! WE ACCEPT BTCiTCOIN HERE"
 i rushed for my mycelium wallet, and i couldnt be happier to say i have made my first NOT online transaction with BTCitcoin in the UK and the food was amazing too.

The Birds Nest Pub

The Lovely pub in deptford, London

Amazing food cooked by a real chef and live music all the time Smiley and of course a great attitude towards us BTCitcoin heads.

They Launched with a BTCitcoin party last week,  and is now i expect one of the very few pubs in London to adopt the digital currency and I am proud to say I have sampled their jalapeño burger and avocado burger and also their Sunday roast as well as a few to many beers . And I paid with BTCitcoin which made me very happy.

its a step in the right direction and i hope more businesses catch on soon. and i don't doubt that they will with the emergence of more BTCitcoin ATMs in the UK (which i have yet to visit). i think its just a matter of a year or so before we start seeing it much more widespread.

anyway i thought i would share my experience with you all as i am sure there are some UK BTCitcoiners like me who would love a BTCitcoin BTCurger Smiley

That's a nice story, I'm sure that this will happen more often in the future.
I find this map very useful if I want to spend my coins somewhere: http://coinmap.org/ .

america got on the bitcoin train very early and has 10's of thousands of merchants on the street. UK is like 2-3 years behind, but is starting to gain its momentum.

if you have a couple friends in your town, or know of a few people that are into bitcoin. get together and find places of interest that you would all enjoy to see accept bitcoin.

im not talking about random places where you think the place may only get 1 customer a week spending just £10, im talking about places where you think that there would be a regular bitcoin flow.

then either become the exchanger for that place by giving them a £200 upfront tab, and ask them to accept bitcoins up to that limit using a price value from your own website (so you control the price). that way they already have the ££ upfront and they simply hand you the bitcoins as they come in, due to your website giving them the QR codes/addresses to deposit to. this has had more success in acceptance, but the other option involving setting up the place with bitpay.

please do not be back seat passengers, whining that retailers near ou don't accept it. do not get angry or frustrated that th place says no when you simply mention bitcoin. do try to take a front seat and give options to places that they cant refuse

again
if you are thinking about buying £200 of bitcoins over the next month. and you know of a merchant that bitcoiners frequent enough then give that merchant a 'bartab' and ask him to simply give customers asking to pay via bitcoin, a qr code that relates to an amount. which is basically a proof of purchase. help them set it up on their phones. make simple API, or html GET forms etc.

remember bitcoin is not a company, bitcoin is every single one of us. so relying on other people just letting yourself down.

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at
