One coffee? That'll be 0,00984 Bitcoin.

In a country where cash is king and dollars are scarce, Bitcoin (a virtual currency)  is making inroads. In spite of certain drawbacks, the Bitcoin is increasingly being used in Argentina by entrepreneurs, tourists and shopkeepers as an alternative payment method. Peter and Remi had a coffee in Latin America’s first bar that accepts Bitcoins. Peter’s article for Dutch daily Trouw can be read here (Blendle, € 0,25). Remi’s interview for Dutch radio programme EenVandaag can be listened to here.
