We often forget that we can actually spend Bitcoin. We all know, though there is always a fluctuation in price, bitcoin has been steadily rising for the past few years. Knowing that 0.0025 BTC for a 15 dollar omelette brunch might be worth 150 dollars at the end of this year, we become hesitant in spending our BTC.
I often see “Bitcoin Accepted Here” stickers at local grocery stores or bodegas so it is definitely not something new but was still very surprised to see how many restaurants accept BTC in NYC.
