The First Bitcoin Shop in Europe Opens in London

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.

Read the rest.
