Inaugural Bitcoin Fair in San Francisco Sees High Turnout

(CoinDesk) Hundreds of curious people recently descended upon San Francisco’s Japantown to have a relaxing few hours learning about cryptocurrencies and their potential at the first ever Bitcoin Fair.

The inaugural event was held at the Japan Center eatery, Ramen Underground, last Thursday night. The restaurant has been accepting Bitcoin for some time, making it an appropriate venue to host what organizers believe will be the first Bitcoin Fair of many.

In keeping with the spirit of the event, Ramen Underground was offering food and drink specials payable with Bitcoin via the use of QR codes on its tables.
