A cryptocurrency strip club called “The Legends Room“ has become the first of its kind in Las Vegas, where strippers wear temporary QR tattoos as a wallet to process bitcoin payments. This new feature provides patrons and strippers with an anonymous, decentralized payment solution for transacting naughty services. They usually bought with cash or credit cards that often leaves a money trail.
The cryptocurrency strip club opened in May 2017 by martial arts trainer Nick Blomgren, who dreamed up the scheme to use cryptocurrency payments so patrons can keep their visits secret from loved ones, said Las Vegas I-TEAM.
“We came up with an idea probably about a year and a half ago of how we could turn this Bitcoin into something. So we were brainstorming. First, we were thinking about a fight company because I own a mixed martial arts gym. I was like well that would work better in a strip club. It’s the best place to spend it if you don’t want your wife to know or you don’t want your boyfriend to know,” said Blomgren.
He added that cryptos could be the next big thing:
“Some people had the dot.com era and if you didn’t jump on then, you missed the boat. Well, I don’t feel I missed the boat this time, I got on the ground floor of something that’s going to be huge.”
Welcome to the exciting new world of Bitcoin
Customers, who have a cryptocurrency wallet can directly scan the QR tattoos on the dancers’ body . They can also pay through traditional forms of payment – cash or card.
Blomgren offers a substantial perk for patrons who wish to transact cryptocurrency in his club, that is a 20 percent discount on all club services.
Vanessa Murphy, an I-Team field reporter, had a fascinating conversation with one stripper, who claims to have been in the crypto game for over 5-years. The stripper tells the reporter that cryptocurrency may be the future for adult entertainment workers.
Vanessa Murphy, I-Team Reporter: “How often do customers want to pay with Bitcoin?”
Brenna Sparks, adult entertainer: “Quite often. Like the people that come here, they are like really into crypto. I feel like it’s very smart. It’s peer to peer. It’s anonymous and instant.”
