Wednesday. Booked a haircut, got more bitcoin. Started Hopstock
For those not following, this is a crazy experiment explained in this post.
So I need a haircut, and I decided to find a place. The usual barber I go to didn't want to accept sadly... Google here we come! Seems a salon by the Basin Reserve accepts! Mane Salon is the place I call and make a booking for tomorrow. They confirm they accept bitcoin :D
I'm also running low on bitcoin, so I get some more off the friend I get it from. Purchased at the same price as the start of the month, so price is reasonably stable it seems!
I also started an event called Hop Stock run by Craft Beer Capital. You go to several craft beer bars over a few days and get stamps for trying some beer. Problem is ... most of them only accept NZD! I go along with a friend, and ask if they accept. Asked Fork and Brewer (got told I should get out of bitcoin, it's "dangerous"). Asked Bru Haus, the staff knew what it was, but the manager didn't know enough at the moment. I left a tip. I asked Tap Haus and got a negative response. I asked Goldings Free Dive Bar, and got another negative response. I then went to Rogue and Vagabond and used my month long tab. Cheated! So far only 1 stamp, probably won't get the tshirt this year...
If you can offer assitance, just do it! I'm on twitter as haquaman, on reddit as haquaman, on IRC as aquaman (no h), and email at hugh AT davenport DOT net DOT nz.
