Merchant Spotlight – Cheers Bar & Grill

If you’ve been following the news, Bitcoin is a pretty big deal all over the world.  The largest banks to the smallest shops can benefit from faster, affordable, and purely digital payments.

The Linkou District in the western part of New Taipei is home to Cheers Linkou Bar and Grill.  Thanks to our web form, I recently learned that Cheers was a Bitcoin merchant previously not listed on our Merchant Map.  The folks at Cheers wanted to be an early adopter of Bitcoin but they also wanted to do more than just let people spend their funds.

My favourite hangout in Linkou!  Great people, good food & drinks and a comfy location. Often has live music and DJs on the weekends and there’s a dart board for entertainment. Environment is simple but casual and cosy. – Ra T., Taipei, Taiwan

Dealing with new technologies and alternative digital payments is innovative, but Cheers is taking it a step further.  The management keeps their incoming bitcoin and use them to pay some of their suppliers or at other merchants who accept bitcoin.  By implementing this closed loop of Bitcoin payments, Cheers hopes to see a significant growth in Bitcoin adoption and awareness in the future.

Support Team Tips: Why your wallet recovery phrase is so important

A major asset to wallet security and ownership is the ability for users to back up their funds.

The process and utility behind making a backup has changed since our legacy wallet. It’s also a lot easier. To refresh your understanding of how our new wallet works under the hood, be sure to check out this post.

Your Wallet Recovery Phrase (or seed) is a random string of words that you write down and store somewhere safe. It acts as a saved copy or backup of your funds. You can find it in the Security Center, or by going to Settings -> Security. For guided assistance on how to set up and store your phrase, check out this tutorial in our Support Center.
