Mr Wolf's becomes first club in Bristol to accept Bitcoin for a pint

"Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be a bit elusive for a lot of people, but we want to spread the message of how beneficial they can be in everyday trading and demystify the process as much as we can."

Mr Wolf's became the first in Bristol to accept Bitcoin on Monday.

A city centre club has become the first in Bristol to accept online currency Bitcoin as payment for a pint.

Mr Wolfs club in St Nicholas Street opened its doors on Monday to welcome those in Bristol’s Bitcoin community, and allow them to pay for drinks for one night only using just their ‘digital wallet’.

The idea of introducing Bitcoin to the bar came from the Dog and Bird video and media production company, who are based in an office above the bar and are currently in the process of creating a full-length documentary about cryptocurrency, called The Trust Protocal.

Whilst travelling the world researching and filming for the film, Liam Turner and Tom McKerrow of Dog and Bird came across Anypay, a company based in New Hampshire in the United States, who had innovated a new system for allowing customers to make everyday transactions with Bitcoin.

After bringing the technology across the pond, Mr Wolf became on Monday night the first business in Europe to use the innovative new system - encouraging customers to make a real use out of their virtual coins.

Liam said: “It was brilliant to see the technology in action here in Bristol - we had a small crowd come to the launch night and everyone seemed to enjoy being able to make real-world purchases instantly using just their digital wallet.

Dog and Bird IO is a Video and Media production company specialising in content creation in the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain space.

“Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be a bit elusive for a lot of people, but we want to spread the message of how beneficial they can be in everyday trading and demystify the process as much as we can.

“Bitcoin has made the headlines quite a lot recently, but I think there’s quite a misunderstanding about what it is and how it can be used as a real currency. We’ve seen it making real progress all over the world and are hopeful that in the future it can start to become more mainstream in the UK too.”
