Japan is currently the third densest region of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) accepting merchants. In order to keep the adoption ball rolling, this week an avid BCH supporter talked the owners of Tokyo-based luxury lounge Mezzo into accepting BCH at three more popular nightclubs in the Tokyo district. The owners revealed that the Japanese clubs V2, Ele, Villa, and Mezzo’s food and beverage cafe Ruby will be accepting BCH for drinks and services this April.
Bitcoin Cash Joins Tokyo’s Nightlife
Thanks to a passionate BCH enthusiast, four of the hottest nightclubs in Tokyo will be accepting bitcoin cash for drinks and amenities. Since Japan legalized cryptocurrency payments in April 2017, the country has become a hotbed for digital currency accepting merchants and businesses setting up exchange operations. Japan is also known for being the third most popular region for BCH-accepting retailers. At the time of writing, there are 57 different merchants in Japan who welcome BCH for payments. Now, one of the organizers of the Tokyo BCH meetup, Akane Yokoo, has gotten the owners of Mezzo to extend their BCH acceptance to four other establishments (three nightclubs and one cafe). Mezzo is a luxury lounge in Tokyo which already accepted BCH for meals, drinks, and services.
Yokoo explained that the BCH meetups in Tokyo are sometimes held at the Mezzo luxury lounge in Roppongi and the club is considered one of the hottest bars in Gaien Higashi-Dori. Additionally, the club uses a Bitcoin.com wallet to accept BCH, which means the owners are accepting the cryptocurrency directly, rather than immediately selling it for yen with a payment processor. Yokoo told our newsdesk that the Mezzo owners will now accept BCH at four other establishments they own: V2, Ele, Villa, and Mezzo’s cafe called Ruby.
“We are really excited to see some of the biggest clubs in Tokyo accepting bitcoin cash payments,” Yokoo detailed during our discussion. “It would be good for foreign tourists who would like to use bitcoin cash when they come to Tokyo and want to go to nightclubs as well.”
BCH Supporters Push Merchant Adoption Relentlessly
V2 Tokyo is a well-known nightclub located in the center of Roppongi that sits atop a very large building. According to reviews, the club has “killer views” and hosts some of the most popular DJs in the industry. Ele Tokyo is another connected club which was created to provide the “world’s highest quality entertainment.”
The Ele nightclub is considered a “high-class sophisticated” establishment for adults. Last April, Villa Tokyo became the latest addition to Roppongi’s nightlife scene, a block away from the main Gaien Higashi-Dori drag. The club was formerly known as Feria but since the new owners took over, the place has become regarded as an “exciting new option for a night out in Roppongi” according to reviews. Mezzo’s Ruby cafe will also accept BCH for food and drinks, the owners explained to Yokoo.
Mezzo’s owners have detailed to Yokoo that the four businesses will begin accepting BCH this April. Yokoo is super pleased to onboard another four establishments, having already convinced numerous Tokyo-based businesses to accept the digital currency. The story follows in the wake of another persistent BCH supporter who convinced the popular website Chess.com to accept bitcoin cash for membership services. BCH proponents are convinced that real world adoption begins by getting lots of merchants onboard with decentralized currencies. So far in regions such as Japan, Slovenia, and North Queensland, the idea seems to be working.

In this edition of The Daily we cover a trading competition and giveaway promoting Binance’s new platform, new mining plans from Bitdeer and the merger of cryptocurrency wallet startup Ethos by the digital assets brokerage Voyager.
Binance DEX Trading Competition
Popular crypto trading platform Binance has announced that to increase awareness of its upcoming decentralized exchange (DEX) within the community, it will sponsor a simulated trading competition on its DEX testnet.
All users who hold at least 1 BNB token in their Binance account will be eligible to participate in this simulated trading competition. Each account is able to register a maximum of 20 addresses and will receive 200 virtual testnet BNB tokens to each address to use as their starting funds before the trading competition begins. It will officially start on March 7 and last until the 21st, with rewards promised to be issued within two weeks after the competition ends.
Bitdeer Launches BCH Mining Plan
Computing power-sharing platform Bitdeer has announced it is now supporting mining for bitcoin cash (BCH) as well as litecoin (LTC) and ethereum (ETH) in response to client demands, giving its users a variety of options to utilize their rented hashing power. The company explained that it added support for these cryptocurrencies as they have remained relatively stable among the leading coins, showing their popularity with the crypto community.
The platform claims to have secured partnerships with some of the largest mining pools in the world including BTC.com, Ant Pool, Dpool, and Viabtc. Users of Bitdeer can choose to be connected to one of the supported pools while switching between different duration plans (short, mid, and long-term), miner hardware models, and coins (BTC, BCH, LTC, and ETH).
Voyager Merges Ethos
Digital assets brokerage Voyager has revealed it will be merging with Ethos, a cryptocurrency universal wallet and service provider. The wallet software will be integrated into Voyager’s retail and institutional businesses, allowing its customers to self-custody their crypto assets with a brokerage solution for efficient trading.
Shingo Lavine, founder and current CEO of Ethos, will be joining Voyager as chief blockchain officer and will also maintain a seat on Voyager’s board of directors. The deal will reportedly cost the brokerage 7 million of its common shares, worth about US$ 4 million. The company started trading its shares on the Toronto Ventures Exchange through a reverse takeover earlier this year.
