Webcam strippers have been accepting Bitcoin for years, but now the currency has finally made it out of the digital word and into the nightclub.
Legends Room, a gentlemen’s club near the Strip, will let you use Bitcoin, Etherium, and its own digital currency LGD, during your night out. It’s fittingly promoting the new payment method, which reads like a big PR stunt, alongside the boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor set for Saturday. Anyone wanting to watch the fight at the club on Aug. 26 can take out their smartphone and pay $150 worth of Bitcoin for the cover fee.
All services paid for after entry—drinks, tips, and dances—can also be purchased using crytocurrency. If you’ve benefited from Bitcoin’s remarkable turnaround, you might be able to afford a spot in the members’ area. That will cost you 5,000 LGD tokens, which can be paid for at the door with cash, credit card, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and LGD. As Mashable points out, the current price of an LGD token is $2.15.
If that isn’t futuristic enough, dancers will have temporary QR codes tattooed on their bodies. This will let patrons wave their phones over the dancers to tip for a lap dance. If all this makes you feel uneasy, well, welcome to the future.
