Bitcoin Bar ‘Room 77’ Shuts Down

Bitcoin Bar ‘Room 77’ Shuts Down
![img](fqh92c5eabu51 " Room 77, first one to accept Bitcoin payments. ")
Room 77, the German bar and restaurant that claims to be the first retail outfit in the world to accept bitcoin payments, has shut down. Cypherpunk Holdings chief economist Jon Matonis broke the news on Twitter. Bar owner Jorg Platzer later confirmed it on Reddit.
“Room 77 is closing for good,” Platzer revealed in a rather futuristic, celebratory post on Oct. 18. “We think our mission is accomplished and it is time to go back to our home planet. Thanks for all the fish and the generous tips!”
No official reason was given for the closure of the Berlin-based joint. But there’s suspicion this may have been related to the coronavirus pandemic. Lockdown restrictions linked to Covid-19 have hit the global hospitality industry hard.
In Berlin, strict restrictions on the sale of alcohol remain in place, with bar operators banned from selling the product from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. The measures have badly affected profits.
Located in Kreuzberg, Berlin, Room 77 began accepting bitcoin (BTC) as a means of payment in 2011, becoming the first bar, and most likely the first private retail outlet, in the world to do so. Since then, the drinking spot has developed into something of a pilgrimage site for bitcoiners, who patronize the place for its BTC payments and more.
“Before we did that (accept BTC), all media coverage about bitcoin was about hackers stealing credit card details and selling them on the black markets,” Platzer said in a 2018 interview, highlighting how the establishment had changed media perceptions and coverage around the top cryptocurrency.
In the crypto community, people responded to Room 77’s closure with fond memories of the past.
“End of an Era: Room 77 in Berlin closes doors permanently!” tweeted Jon Matonis, the Cypherpunk Holdings chief economist. “Blame it on Covid or blame it on gentrification. Either way, this Kreuzberg landmark has served as a Bitcoin watering hole for over 10 years, with thousands making the obligatory pilgrimage. Thx for the memories, Joerg!”
Redditor u/etrnetm said: “Thanks for providing the unofficial embassy of Bitcoin in Berlin to us earthlings. We shall meet again.”
In his Reddit post, Platzer concluded:
"It is clear by now that nobody will stop bitcoin anymore. Sound money on a global scale will soon make it unfeasable to wage wars and it will create economic equality amongst mankind. We estimate it will take you less than another century to rise and join the intergalactic community."

**PSA: The Scaling Debate is over.** At the Berlin Lightning Hackday this weekend some #reckless people implemented a POS solution on mobile devices that allows us to accept Bitcoin via the lightning network at our bar (ROOM77).

Stuff just got real. Real as in applied in a real world business in a real world usecase recklessly using real money.
People opened channels to our node and paid their bill and other people did not open channels to us but their payments were successfully routed and arrived in literally microseconds as well anyway.
I am herewith declaring the end of the scaling debate. This problem is solved. We can now refocus on the actual challenges like fungability and privacy in Bitcoin.
I wanna throw out the biggest thanks to Rene and all the other guys who I cannot possibly name who have contributed. Also to Jef, Christian and Josh of fulmo who did an unbelievable job bringing the people together here and making this development possible.
This kind of innovation feels like the early days of Bitcoin all over again.

PSA: if you send bcash altcoins – or any other fake Bitcoin – to a Bitcoin address at ROOM77 (as has happened) we will not only NOT honor that transaction as a payment but we will also NOT recover your altcoins for you.

In order to recover your altcoins we would need to install software we cannot trust on our system and expose our private keys to that software. This is never gonna happen.
In case you are a victim of the bcash scam we are sorry for your loss and recommend you complain to the people who scammed you into buying fake Bitcoin.
In case you are one of these scammers trying to trick merchants into installing untrustworthy software this way: go fuck yourself!
Update: I did not make this post to discuss the blatant censoring in other "btc" subreddits.
I wanted to make the point that it is nobody's responsibility to accept any altcoin being sent to their Bitcoin address as an actual payment. If we go down this road Bitcoin will be unusable. I therefor want to suggest the following guideline:
No retailer has to honor whatever you send to their bitcoin address as long as it's not Bitcoin.

I've pinged Jörg Platzer, owner of Room77 in Berlin, to see if he wants to be the world first physical merchant to accept Bitcoin Cash!

ROOM77 is closing for good. We think our mission is accomplished and it is time to go back to our home planet. Thanks for all the fish and the generous tips!

We are people from a solar system not yet discovered by humanity and have been watching your species for the last 30.000 years. We had reason to believe that Homo Sapiens will go the same way as Erectus, Neandethalensis and the Denisovans. However, when we discovered that the Nakamoto guy invented Bitcoin, we realised that you do have a future.
Once a civilisation has developed a planetary hard money system it usually does not take long until its members become peaceful and start putting their resources into developing longevity and space travel instead of governments and weapons. The first ten years of such a money are crucial, as there are always forces who want to hold back development and keep you in chains. We therefor stopped by, occupied that little joint in Berlin Kreuzberg and started promoting and explaining the importance of this step to the unaware public and offering a place where the development of the technology is being driven forward. And we had a great time doing so, having a lot of fun and making many friends.
It is clear by now that nobody will stop Bitcoin anymore. Sound money on a global scale will soon make it unfeasable to wage wars and it will create economic equality amongst mankind. We estimate it will take you less than another century to rise and join the intergalactic community.
So see all you sweet people out there soon, thanks again for all the fish and the generous tips!

PSA1: ROOM77 does NOT have a Bitcoin atm anymore. PSA2: owners of an atm please secure your location!

In short: we have made a lot of headlines beyond the Bitcoin community in the early days for accepting bitcoins at our bar / restaurant as the first bricks and mortar business anywhere. Three years ago we installed a Bitcoin atm which we took away again as the German central bank was not too happy about that. The atm also made it into the media. Still today people ask for the machine almost every day.
On the other hand: for the last years we suffer a series of strange burglaries: the intruders invest a lot of time and force (for example to dismantle a heavy steel door in our basement) and risk jail time and then they literally take nothing with them (not even expensive whiskey or a laptop we use to play music) and do not even bother to search through anything (like shelves and drawers) which any burglar in their right mind would do to find our wallet or money. So they obviously are in search for something specific that would be in plain sight and cannot be hidden anywhere (police is of that opinion too).
Now connect the dots, secure your location in case you have an atm and please tell everybody we don't have one anymore! ;)

Nachdem das Lokal Room 77 nun geschlossen hat, kommt die Frage auf, welche Bitcoin (BTC)-Akzeptanzsstellen es in Berlin noch gibt.

Remembering Room77, Bitcoin’s Favorite Bar Amid the seemingly nonstop flow of wild events in 2020, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the next bitcoin bull run and copycat bacon cheeseburger token scams (more on that later), the legendary Room77 has now officially closed for good. During the 2013 bitcoin hype, there was a Bitcoin ATM in Room77. It was frequented by many and, after the Mt.Gox dump, the regulations around ATMs in Germany were not very euphoric. The ATM was removed and life went on in Room without it — as if bitcoin needs ATMs anyway. In late 2018, there was a Berlin court decision that said that, since bitcoin is not officially money, that the law ... Room 77 originally opened as a side project, until Bitcoin came and made it an icon. Now, the first bar to ever accept bitcoin is closing.
