Meet Tinas Royal, 25-Year Old Nightclub Owner First To Accept Bitcoin Payments In Mombasa

Tinas Royal is her name. At only 25 years old, she’s taking business & showbiz to the next level. Owning a luxurious night-club in Mombasa, not only is she the proprietor of the first business in Mombasa to accept bitcoin as payment, but she also is a music blogger. According to her Instagram profile, which features content of herself dancing and posing to music of independent artists. Within her Instagram account, many verified users – the majority of whom are American, Indian, and European musicians, models, and actresses – regularly comment under each of her posts.
She clearly is appealing to an international audience of notable figures. One such commenter of her recent posts is a renowned Chinese billionaire. As Tinas Royal gains more international attention, we equally become increasingly interested in what more this versatile entrepreneur will present to Kenya and, ultimately, the world.
A flexible method of payment, especially one that is in alignment with modernized technological advancement, would ideally attract a more expansive clientele within the rapid-growing town.

Next Level Payment.

In October last year, software company Chainalysis reported that their firm conducted research that concluded that Kenya ranked on the Global Crypto Adoption Index as the number 1 country in the world with the highest volume of P2P exchange cryptocurrency transactions, following a 300% increase from the previous year.

Naturally, Tina’s Royal Nights is a direct representation of the recent surge of growth of cryptocurrency usage in Kenya.

Tinas Royal compares the functionality of sending and receiving bitcoins to that of using the de facto Safaricom payment processor, M-Pesa, a familiarity she believes could help facilitate a more widespread adoption among Kenyans.

Systemically comparable to sending cash to a mobile or till number, customers can opt to pay for products offered at Tina’s Royal Nights by sending bitcoin to a scanned QR code that is conveniently printed on the menus.
