Congratulations to my Rothbardian friend, Akin Fernandez, who is making headlines after opening Europe’s first bricks and mortar Bitcoin shop, Azteco. Writes the Daily Mail:

An entrepreneur has opened the first shop in Europe where Bitcoins can be bought over the counter.
Normally it can take weeks to set-up an account and purchase the digital currency over the internet – but Akin Fernandez simply prints off a voucher so they can be accessed immediately.
The user then enters a 16-digit code and the Bitcoins are transferred to the designated virtual wallet within 70 seconds.
