Dante Ramírez, owner of the Inti Killa pizzeria in Ollantaytambo, Cusco, says that it is not long since he decided to join this system in order to diversify his income. “Tourists come and I offer them these facilities, especially because cashiers here sometimes do not work,” he says. In short, now a good pizza you pay with a few tenths of Bitcoin.
Alberto González, owner of the restaurant Vegetarian Food in downtown Cusco, says he has this payment option since approximately March of last year and has received 40 transactions since then, an average of four purchases per month.
González, like Ramírez, says that at the moment this is just a method of saving and that eventually he could evaluate the way to monetize it, but it is not what he will choose at the moment.
