Berlin Restaurant Experiments With Virtual Currency

[...]
Room 77 is mainly furnished with well-used sofas, vintage chairs and tables, but the restaurant does show some signs of the digital age.

"We accept Bitcoin" reads a paper note at the bar.

"We do call it currency. It's a digital currency. It's the first digital and global currency, and it's the first decentralized currency, meaning that you do not need any banks, bank accounts, or Mastercard to use it," Platzer says

Room 77 is the only restaurant in Germany that accepts the virtual currency.

Bitcoin is also the name of the open source software developed for the currency. It was created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto.

"I would think there is actually a group of people behind the synonym. The idea is very powerful and mighty. The software is also very brilliant. So it's very unlikely that just one person threw it all together."[...]

From the photo:

At Room 77, this cheeseburger will cost you 2 Bitcoin. That's about four Euro or five dollars.

but then later in the article:

Quote
"A Bitcoin- the exchange rate is actually four Euro or five dollars for one Bitcoin, so a cheeseburger would be two Bitcoin here."

TL;DR: math is hard.
