Nashville’s The Bobby Hotel will now accept cryptocurrencies including Dogecoin (DOGE), Nashville Business Journal reported.
What Happened: Guests at the 144-room boutique hotel can now reportedly pay for their reservations in the Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency along with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) among others.
Bobby Hotel’s area general manager Jeff Crabiel said that the cryptocurrency would be accepted through a partnership with BitPay, an Atlanta-based bitcoin payment service provider.
“As Bitcoin and cryptocurrency become more widely accepted forms of payment globally, it was important to find a way to provide our guests with the access and convenience of utilizing these currencies when visiting Bobby,” said Crabiel, reported the Nashville Business Journal.
DOGE traded 11.19% higher at $0.66 at press time while the apex cryptocurrency by market capitalization, BTC, traded 1.68% lower at $57,927.09.
Why It Matters: The hotel will also accept cryptocurrency for event bookings including weddings, meetings, and others, according to the Nashville Business Journal.
Late in March, Lativian airline airBaltic also began allowing flyers to pay for their tickets in DOGE, Cointelegraph reported.
The airline already accepts other cryptocurrencies such as BTC, ETH, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and USD Coin (USDC).
