Ultraclub E11EVEN MIAMI announced Tuesday that it will now be accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment - making them the first major nightclub in the U.S. to do so.
Now, when paying for tables, drinks, or merchandise, guests have the option of seamlessly paying with cryptocurrency.
"With the tremendous growth and relevancy of cryptocurrency coupled with Mayor Francis Suarez leading the charge for Miami's tech boom, we felt it made sense to introduce cryptocurrency as an option to our guests to pay for their night out," said Dennis DeGori, creator and CEO of E11EVEN MIAMI. "E11EVEN is dedicated to always staying ahead of the curve, and we believe Cryptocurrency is here to stay."
E11EVEN MIAMI has partnered with one of the largest cryptocurrency processing companies to implement a system to process cryptocurrency purchases using Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Dogecoin, among others. The system in place enables businesses to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment without having to buy, own or manage crypto.
