“Cash, credit, or Bitcoin? A Palo Alto cafe is adopting a new payment method.
Within the past several weeks, Coupa Cafe in Palo Alto became one of the only brick-and-mortar businesses in the Bay Area — and in the world — to start accepting Bitcoin, an online, unregulated open-source currency.
Let’s say you want to buy a medium latte: you’ll see the price in dollars, around $3 or $4, and the price in Bitcoin, .048 BC, which might not seem like a lot, but consider that one Bitcoin is currently trading at roughly $90.
That Bitcoin amount can change on a daily basis as the currency rate fluctuates.
The transaction takes as much time as a credit card.”
