A Las Vegas strip club is elevating itself into the digital age by accepting Bitcoin via the ultra-fast and efficient Lightning Network. 

According to a recent press release, the Crazy Horse 3 gentlemen’s club in Las Vegas, Nevada has started accepting Bitcoin payments through the Lightning Network. The world-renowned strip club claims to be the first major entertainment venue in Las Vegas to accept Lightning payments.

The release says the club has integrated with OpenNode, a Bitcoin payment processor which allows guests to securely purchase “VIP bottle packages” using BTC through the venue’s website. 

Crazy Horse 3 publicist Lindsay Feldman, of BrandBomb Marketing, said the club was committed to a “modern-day” experience for guests, and noted that Bitcoin offered “convenience, first-class hospitality and an added level of anonymity.”

The branding rep continued, 

The club’s partnership with OpenNode allows us to cater to our tech savvy customers’ needs by offering an innovative form of payment that’s both seamless and secure. With the new Allegiant Stadium just feet away from our front door, this crypto power move allows us to give our customers, including global travelers flying in for conventions, concerts and sporting events, more purchasing power.

The club intends to begin accepting Bitcoin for admission, food selections, craft cocktails and the club’s signature “dance dollars” in the near future. 

Of course, this is not the only entertainment venue in Las Vegas to accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. For example, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino was one of the first Vegas casinos to accept Bitcoin and currently says that it can “accept bitcoin for dining, hotel reservations, our gift shops, and at the front desk.” Such BTC payments are processed via BitPay.
