A DUBLIN PUB has become one of the first pubs in the country to accept the digital currency Bitcoin.

The Baggot Inn took in its first Bitcoin payments for drinks last night, with customers paying BTC 0.0093 (€4.40) per pint.

It’s not a one time deal – the pub plans to accept the digital currency from now on, and are also installing a Bitcoin ATM so customers can exchange their Bitcoin for cash.

BUT it appears that the Baggot Inn may not have been the first pub in the country to accept Bitcoin – Healy’s Pub in Ballycastle, Co Mayo took in Bitcoin for two pints a whole month ago on February 4.

Here’s the proof:
