Las Vegas has the reputation of being a city of madness. The latest will surely lift the spirits of cryptocurrency fans still reeling from the market crash. Crazy Horse 3, one of the city’s famous gentlemen’s clubs, now accepts cryptocurrency for lap dances and tips for entertainers.
Basically, customers can now pay with bitcoins, anonymously.
“Venue becomes one of the first strip clubs in the United States to welcome digital currency exchange for adult entertainment; offering tech-savvy customers an extra layer of privacy and flexibility,” said the club in a statement provided via email by a spokesperson.
Lindsay Feldman, Press Officer, added, “Customers can enjoy all of our animated adult entertainment anonymously and instantly. Crazy Horse 3 has always been at the forefront of the industry and remains committed to providing unique and innovative that enhance the world-class experience that our high-end clientele knows us.
Guests or customers scan a QR code, which will enable a bitcoin payment transaction through their crypto wallet, all without a paper trail, the adult entertainment club explained.
Crypto hits the club
Feldman assured that this payment option will be permanent and not just temporary.
If successful, this initiative could encourage other players in the adult entertainment industry to integrate cryptocurrencies into payment options. Especially since Mastercard and Visa often refuse to handle payments from many entertainment sites for various legal reasons.
Crazy Horse 3, which is open 24/7, is not its first experience with bitcoin.
The Gentlemen’s club accepts the “king of cryptocurrencies” since July 2021 for the purchase of champagne packages. This service, which does not only consist of selling bottled alcoholic beverages, generally includes other extras for customers: table reservation, priority access to the entrance, dedicated servers and additional advantages for VIPs.
Crazy Horse 3 hopes that by expanding bitcoin as payment for lap dances and tips, it can attract new customers seeking anonymity.
How does a Strip Club take Bitcoin?
To make this payment option possible, the adult entertainment club has partnered with infrastructure provider OpenNode, which handles bitcoin purchases through the Lightning Network. The Lightning Network provides an additional layer of customer identity and transaction privacy.
The Crazy Horse 3 bitcoin rollout includes plans in the near future to accept cryptocurrency for admission, food selections, and craft cocktails.
According to CoinGecko, bitcoin prices have fallen nearly 46% from their all-time high on Nov. 10 at the time of writing.
