More and more (young) people have cryptocurrencies in their possession. To attract these people to Las Vegas, more and more stores, restaurants and clubs are accepting these digital coins. Unfortunately, casinos cannot accept the coins as they can online with Bitcoins, for example. This is due to strict rules of the state, which state that only certain payment methods may be accepted in the casinos on the Strip. However, more people may come to Las Vegas if they can hand in their crypto coins in other places, such as shops and restaurants.
Many conferences about crypto coins
Every year many conferences are organized in Las Vegas. This is nothing new. What is striking is that this year no fewer than seven conferences are being held on cryptocurrencies and the associated blockchain technology. These are well-known conferences such as the CES and the Money 20/20, but also less well-known conferences. In any case, it is clear that many people in the city are investigating the many possibilities of crypto coins, given the large number of conferences about this digital money.
First sales with crypto coins are a fact
The Elena Bulatova gallery on the Strip was one of the first stores to accept cryptocurrencies. There were so many questions from customers about paying with crypto coins that the store decided to just accept these digital coins as payment. In March the first product was sold with a crypto coin, namely the Bitcoin.
The owner of the store is very happy with this development. Not only because she finds crypto coins interesting and likes to own them, but also because the digital coins have to attract new customers. This mainly concerns young customers, since it is often the younger people who hold crypto coins.
More and more companies accept crypto coins
Elena Bulatova is certainly not the only one who accepts crypto coins in her store. Other stores, restaurants and clubs also accept crypto coins. The more entrepreneurs accept the coins, the more entrepreneurs will follow. There is a good chance that Las Vegas will become a mecca for people with crypto coins in the digital "wallet".
