Here’s what meals in a zero fiat economy looks like:
The way the waitress replied “si” when asked about BTC being accepted suggested it was an everyday occurrence - like asking if the restaurant accepted credit cards.
The payment process was swift and took seconds. The itemized bill came with an iPad, preloaded with a Lightning invoice and QR code. You can pay with any Lightning wallet - I used @bluewalletio
Scanning the QR code pre-populates your bill in sats (100MM sats = 1 BTC) and whichever currency your wallet is set. If you use the @BitcoinJungleCR
app, the currency shows in Costa Rican colones.
And in less than a second of hitting send, the transaction is sent & confirmed.⚡️
