Hemingway’s Becomes First Antiguan Restaurant To Accept Bitcoin Cash


(Antigua News Room) On August 8, 2020 it was announced that an Antiguan Company made a small but meaningful step towards the acceptance of cryptocurrency.

Hemingway’s Restaurant in St. John’s became the first restaurant to offer Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in Antigua & Barbuda.

Bitcoin cash is a cryptocurrency created in August 2017, from a fork of Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash increases the size of blocks, allowing more transactions to be processed.

Roger Ver a major proponent of Bitcoin Cash welcomed the exciting news. Twitter users who are fans and skeptics of BCH also had their say on the new development.

CryptoDog said, “the more people directly exchange their services and goods for cryptocurrencies, the more freedom for everyone.”

Captain Bitcoin said, “Lol, I doubt that more than a few people will eat there and pay with Bcash for the next decade!”

The main purpose of Bitcoin Cash is to be used as a payment system. This means that just like the original Bitcoin client, people can send and receive funds. However, it is said that Bitcoin Cash’s technology allows much faster transaction times and lower transaction fees.



  1. No disrespect intended, but who are these White boys on the pictures? Are they Antigua born OR where they come from?

    • Partner! I’m 4th generation born Antiguan, is that good enough for you? My GGG Grandfather is resting at St.Johns Cemetery since 1845! A.J Camacho. Not that you need a reply for such a silly comment.
