An adult entertainment venue in Las Vegas will enable its dancers to get payments from clients directly via bitcoin transfers. The use of the cryptocurrency is primarily used as a privacy-enhancing measure as well as an attraction for affluent bitcoin investors.
Vistors to the Legends Room can use the in-house bitcoin ATM to buy cryptocurrency at the club. The dancers can choose to wear temporary QR tattoos as wallet addresses that can be scanned on a smartphone. Besides the privacy concerns of the patrons, the use of bitcoin allows the dancers to avoid explaining to banks where they get large amounts of cash.
Asked how often customers want to pay with bitcoin, Brenna Sparks answered: “Oh, quite often. Like the people that come here, they are like really into crypto. I feel like it’s very smart. They are really into that.” She says she likes checking her balance a lot, “It’s fun though. Once you invest, it becomes an everyday thing.”
“When I first heard about the concept, I thought wow this is really something different, you know,” said DJ Saint Clare who gets part of her salary in cryptocurrency.
