Bored & Hungry Pull the Plug on Fake Crypto Payment News

After news recently surfaced that Bored & Hungry, the world’s first NFT restaurant, had stopped accepting crypto as a viable method of payment, its owners have taken to Twitter to put the speculation to bed.
Bored & Hungry first opened in Long Beach, California, back in April, wherein it was proud to coin itself the first physical restaurant to accept cryptocurrencies (Ethereum and ApeCoin that is) as payment methods, along with credit card and fiat payments.
The false reports were born on one specific day, wherein a reporter from the Los Angeles Times decided to visit the restaurant. Here, evidence of a lack of crypto payment came through the fact that prices were only displayed in dollars, and apparently an employee explicitly confirmed that for an unknown reason, the establishment couldn’t facilitate crypto payments on that day.
The subsequent reporting of the incident pointed at the ongoing bear market as the cause of the restaurant’s abandoned crypto policy, as well as rumours that crypto payments in the restaurant hadn’t been as prevalent as first envisioned.
To end the speculation once and for all, which was quite hastily being reported as fact, Bored & Hungry’s Twitter account responded to the LA Times’ reports by stating that the establishment’s constant upgrades were the reason behind its momentary inability to accept crypto payments.
Its owner Andy Nguyen, the man who was initially reported as a comment dodger, then took to his own personal Twitter account to call the story ‘fake news,’ whilst also reinforcing the fact that Bored & Hungry will always accept Ethereum and ApeCoin as payment methods.
