Bitcoin Making Its Way into Strip Clubs

Those who frequent the strip club, The Legend Room, in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be delighted to know that they can now tip their strippers with Bitcoin. A rather unusual idea that was conceived by the club’s owner, Nick Blomgren.

Welcome to The Legend Room

Opened in 2017, The Legend Room is now aiming to outsmart even the most luxurious strip clubs in the continental USA. According to Blomgren, he wanted to find a way to keep the identity of his club’s clients anonymous and, saw Bitcoin and Blockchain technology as the perfect way to accomplish this.

The idea gets even more unique and once we take a deeper look it’s easy to see how this is a well-thought-out idea for strip clubs. To pay a dancer in Bitcoin, a client simply needs to approach a dancer and scan a QR code assigned to them in the form of a temporary tattoo. Moreover, as an incentive, the club will be offering a 20% discount to all clients who pay by using the new service.


Changing the Game

This new idea illustrates a growing trend in the world of adult entertainment. In fact, it should be noted that the pornographic industry has been at the forefront of many technological revolutions. For decades, adult products and services have encouraged the adoption of new media formats and technologies.

When video cameras were first introduced, the most popular media format was Betamax. The latter was quickly vanquished by the VHS cassette which, for a long time, was heralded as the most used format for adult videos. Moreover, the advent of the internet was also greatly influenced by the world of adult entertainment.

As a multi-million-dollar market, the industry provides a plethora of services which includes prostitution, pornography, strip clubs and adult sex toys, just to name a few. And, if the industry begins to accept cryptocurrencies as a form a payment, this could embody a massive step forward for digital Blockchain technology and the world of cryptocurrency.
