Eating Crypto for a Week in LA – Day 6
Another less-interesting update because I didn’t leave the house. Food-wise today was awesome. I used the leftover veggies (paid for with bitcoin) with the eggs (paid for with dogecoin) to make an omlette. I call it a dogelette. Lunch and dinner were more leftovers from Smokehouse. Snack was candy from Meltdown Comics, paid for in bitcoin (kinda like Japanese M&M’s in a cool box). The candy was really cute- I’d buy that again (with dogecoin!).
Eating crypto-only takes a lot of planning. I missed a few birthdays at busy bars that I knew wouldn’t be open to taking crypto. Super wishing I’d left Foodlr and more bartering in my challenge rules, so I’d have more variety to write about.
One of the reasons I wanted to do this challenge to see how feasible living on bitcoin would be in Los Angeles, if I were to someday take an income in cryptocurrency. There aren’t nearly enough places here that accept crypto, despite some major bitcoin companies being based here: GoCoin and expresscoin, both housed at an incubator space called Bitropolis in Silicon Beach. I posted a question on Zapchain about bitcoin paychecks, and a handful of people (mainly at bitcoin companies) were in fact pulling paychecks in btc. I think those people probably do a lot of gyft. I was surprised that a San Diego company, Airbitz, was able to pay their office rent in Bitcoin. http://www.zapchain.com/a/mfZ52AMTsp
Even though I didn’t go to any new crypto places, I was super glad that I have a bunch of leftovers. I will probably have to figure out a food tomorrow though.
Total Spent: 0 btc
