In some ways, this California-Mexican cafe — a hangout run by an American expatriate who believes in new ideas — sits at the center of the Bitcoin universe. The digital currency was created by an anonymous computer programmer who many assume is Japanese, and the first big Bitcoin exchange — the web service where so many people bought their first bitcoins — is operated out of a Tokyo office not far from this wonderfully quirky bar and restaurant in the city’s Roppongi district.
But when the Tokyo Bitcoin Meetup Group holds one of its weekly gatherings at the Pink Cow — bringing together Bitcoin enthusiasts from across the city and beyond — only about a third of them actually pay for dinner and drinks with bitcoins.
