What’s the problem?

On 24th February 2022, Russia launched a full-scale military invasion on Ukraine. The conflict has the potential to be a humanitarian catastrophe. In the 48 hours since Russia launched a full-scale invasion on Ukraine, the UN reports 120,000 people have already fled their homes. Neighboring countries are receiving refugees. Poland, for instance, has estimated that it could receive up to 1 million refugees. In response to this crisis, we are donating $10 million USD to major Intergovernmental Organizations and local NGOs on the ground to help provide emergency relief to refugees and children to support logistics on the ground such as food, fuel and supplies for refugees in countries bordering with Ukraine and more.

Dubai Café Accepts Cryptocurrency As Payment, Owner Hints At Paying Employee Salaries In Crypto

Bake N More, a Dubai-based cafe, has become the latest company from the region to add cryptocurrency as a payment option. According to the company’s owner, Mohammad Al Hammadi, Bake N More hinted at possible plans to pay employee salaries in cryptocurrency as well.

A Hub for Crypto Users in UAE

A Dubai-based cafe, Bake N More, has become the latest company to add cryptocurrency as another payment option available to customers. Despite taking this step, Bake N More will nonetheless continue to accept cash and credit card payments, the owner said.

According to his remarks published in a report by Khaleej Times, owner Mohammad Al Hammadi suggested the decision to add crypto to the list of payment methods was made in order to expand Bake N More’s reach. Al Hammadi also claimed the decision was because they “want Bake n More to be a coffee and pastry hub for crypto users in UAE.”

Elsewhere in the report, Al Hammadi is quoted explaining how Bake N More would charge clients that buy a cup of coffee using cryptocurrency. He explained:

Our payment system does the conversion accordingly as it is linked to the price charts. For instance, if a bottle of water cost Dh5 [$1.36], the system divides it by the chart rate, we can assume 3.68, and calculates the cost based on that will be 1.35 UST.

Converting to Fiat

Meanwhile, Al Hammadi revealed that his company is currently storing digital currency and will only engage the relevant exchange platforms when it needs to convert to fiat. He also hinted that his company may in the future pay employee salaries in crypto.

As different authorities in the UAE continue to open up to cryptocurrencies, more companies are embracing them as well. For instance, Bitcoin.com News recently reported that the hospitality brand Stella Stays now accepts cryptocurrency.
