How Super Currency Bitcoins capturing the world...



After a lot of push and praise to bitcoins by bloogle01, finally Indians are starting to get learn about it and believe me its giving them goosebumps, that's not all even some people are opting it, a recent example of it was recorded in Bengaluru, where a small food joint namely "Suruavanshi Restaurant" gained the historical position of first ever retail store to accept bitcoin in India.
In Indiranagar, a posh neighbourhood in Bengaluru dotted with upscale pubs and theme restaurants, is located an eatery that serves Maharashtrian cuisine. It is not big and if you don’t look closely, you might miss Suryawanshi Restaurant.
The Misal Pav and Mutton Thaali at Suryawanshi get due credit from food lovers. But what most Bengalurians, fintech gurus and startup junkies seem to have missed is the fact that it happens to be the first restaurant in the city — and, likely, in all of India — that accepts Bitcoins in payment.
“We started accepting Bitcoins almost a year ago,” Kailash Suryawanshi, the owner of Suryawanshi restaurant told. It accepts payment through Bitcoin wallets like Coinsecure, Unocoin or Zebpay

The restaurant came to notice when Pravin Jadhav, chief product and growth officer, Servify, recently posted the picture of a “Bitcoins accepted here” sticker at the restaurant on Twitter.


“I’m not a tech savvy person at all. I’m the opposite,” said Suryawanshi. But then, how did Bitcoins happen? “A friend of mine introduced me to it. I bought a lot of Bitcoins last year when it was priced around Rs 35,000,” said Suryawanshi, a Marathi businessman who now runs two of these eateries in the city.
When his quest to find authentic Marathi food failed, he decided to start a restaurant of his own in 2013. Besides the Indiranagar outlet, Suryawanshi operates another one in Whitefield with a full kitchen. The Indiranagar restaurant was opened because he realised there was a scarcity of good Marathi cuisine in the area.
“Not a single person has paid in Bitcoins until now” — Suryawanshi  
For all the geek cred that Bengaluru boasts of, Suryawanshi’s little experiment hasn’t found many takers yet. “Not a single person has paid in Bitcoins until now,” said Suryawanshi, who has been in Bengaluru since 2004. “We wanted people to know what Bitcoin is. Those days it was just taking off but it’s now mellowed down a bit.”
A handful of businesses in India have started accepting Bitcoins as payment, including books seller Sapna and Dharwad International School.
