The Miami nightclub is returning after a more than year-long hiatus from COVID-19, accepting bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies as payment.
Luxury nightclub E11 Even Miami announced Tuesday that it will soon begin accepting cryptocurrencies to pay for tables, drinks, merchandise and other services. According to the official announcement, the list of supported cryptocurrencies will include bitcoin, bitcoin cash (BCH), XRP and dogecoin (DOGE).
E11even has partnered with a major cryptocurrency processor to offer the new payment method, but did not disclose the name of the payment processor.
Because of the tremendous growth and relevance of cryptocurrencies, and the fact that Mayor Francis Suarez is leading Miami’s tech boom, we felt it was appropriate to introduce cryptocurrencies as a payment option for our guests at their party. E11even strives to stay ahead, and we believe cryptocurrencies are here to stay, said Dennis DeGorry, founder and CEO of E11even.
According to the Miami Herald, crypto payments are part of the club’s reopening on the 23rd. April, after E11 was even closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision is a no-brainer for E11, even though some of its customers are increasingly getting into the cryptocurrency business. We have a very progressive client base from all over the world, and many of them are already very well known, says Gino Lopinto, himself an operating partner of E11, adding:
We are seeing a growing trend of customers wanting to use their cryptocurrency as a means of payment. We believe that bitcoin-paying nightclubs will soon be the norm in the nightlife world, and we’re excited to be leading the way.
E11 did not even immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.
Miami itself is becoming a major cryptocurrency city in the US, and Mayor Francis Suarez is campaigning to make Miami the cryptocurrency capital of the country. In February, Suarez proposed a formal solution for Bitcoin to be an acceptable means of payment in various parts of city government.
