Red Arrow Diner Nashua Adds Bitcoin Vending Machine + Keene BVM Moves

New Bitcoin Vending Machine at Red Arrow Diner in Nashua

New Bitcoin Vending Machine at Red Arrow Diner in Nashua

Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire has launched another Bitcoin Vending Machine (BVM), this one in Nashua at the brand new Red Arrow Diner.  Located at 149 Daniel Webster Hwy, the Red Arrow’s Nashua location is just the latest opening in the New Hampshire family of diners that stretches back nearly one hundred years to its founding in Manchester in 1922!  The small NH-based chain recently opened restaurants in Concord and Nashua in addition to its downtown Manchester and Londonderry locations.  However, Nashua is the only one with a Bitcoin Vending Machine on-site.

Earlier this year, during the COVID-related crackdown on freedoms that attacked local businesses and continues to harm them, the Embassy’s long-running BVM at Murphy’s Taproom in Manchester became very hard to access. This was due to Murphy’s shutting down as a result of the insane restrictions and threats against restaurants from the governor’s gangsters.  It looked as though Murphy’s was going out of business as its owner, Keith Murphy had posted a goodbye note to his social media.  Sadly, I immediately started looking for a new venue to house the Bitcoin Vending Machine and the first place I thought of was the Red Arrow.  Pre-COVID it was always a highly renown 24/7 diner with locations across the most populated areas of New Hampshire.  Lots of people are familiar with Red Arrow’s friendly brand and their humongous menu.

As it turned out, Red Arrow’s co-owner George Lawrence had heard of Bitcoin and was interested in taking on the machine at the just-opened-in-May Nashua location.  Located just across the border from Massachusetts, the Nashua restaurant is an ideal spot for a BVM.  It would be even better if Red Arrow was 24/7 again, but unfortunately due to the fear being perpetrated against the populace by the government gang and its media sycophants, it’s hard for Red Arrow to find the workers needed to return to 24-hour operation.  That said, the Nashua location is open as early as six am to late-night seven days a week and hopefully will eventually get back to it’s once-prominent position of being New Hampshire’s premiere 24/7 diner.

Thankfully, Murphy’s was able to re-open in Manchester and so instead of moving the machine from there to Red Arrow, we upgraded the machine in Murphy’s to a newer model and installed another brand new General Bytes BATMTwo unit at the Red Arrow in Nashua.

In other New Hampshire BVM news, the top-of-the line unit that was located at Thirsty Owl in Keene has moved across Winchester Street to Campus Convenience, which has even better hours as it opens in the morning all seven-days-per-week.

Car Detailing, Vietnamese Food, and Cleaning Now Available for Crypto in Keene Area

KD Prestige Detailing

KD Prestige Detailing – Now Accepting Cryptocurrencies

Businesses now accepting cryptocurrency in the Keene area had a major expansion last month, with a professional car detailer “KD Prestige Detailing“, a rendezvous Vietnamese Pho chef “EuPHOria“, and professional cleaner “Pure Bliss Clean” all set up to accept multiple cryptos from customers. 

Labeled “Crypto Mecca” in articles at Forbes and, the little college city of Keene, New Hampshire continues to be remarkable in its community adoption of various cryptocurrencies and boasts one of the highest concentrations of crypto-accepting businesses-per-capita on the planet.  Now, that concentration is even higher with three new businesses onboard.

Businesses in New Hampshire are empowered to accept more cryptocurrencies than just Bitcoin (BTC) as the Portsmouth-based “Anypay Cash Register” app easily allows local owners to accept multiple cryptos at their point-of-sale, like DASH, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and even Bitcoin SV (BSV).  Anypay was the first crypto payments processor that allowed businesses a choice back in 2017 when they launched with BTC and DASH.  Anypay has since become the best real-life crypto payments platform, and they are located right here in New Hampshire.

The acceptance of multiple cryptocurrencies is one thing that sets New Hampshire’s businesses apart from many around the world.  Many businesses globally were set up to take just one crypto, usually by someone who is a fanatic of that one particular crypto.  However, we understand that businesses need to be flexible and that there will never be just one crypto, so business owners are encouraged to take the top few cryptos that are focused on payments, like DASH and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).  Bitcoin (BTC) these days is just too expensive for most small purchases due to its large fees by comparison.  Businesses want to use what works best for their customers and customers want a choice, not a crypto cult that only promotes “one true crypto”.

With her new business, “EuPHOria”, the founding chef of Keene’s “Pho Keene Great”, Isabelle Rose, has struck out on her own and is now regularly meeting customers in Keene with hot Vietnamese food cooked-to-order. Another recent addition is Pure Bliss Clean, a professional cleaning service that handles home and small businesses.  Also, Kenzy Dietz of “KD Prestige Detailing” recently won our radio giveaway contest we ran for months on 92.7 Bratt FM and decided to set up Anypay Cash Register shortly thereafter.  Dietz had already been introduced to cryptocurrency by someone close to her and was elated to be the winner of the $500-worth-of-crypto giveaway.  When asked what her reasons were for accepting cryptocurrency at her car detailing business, Dietz said, “Cryptocurrency is the currency of the future, so I am delighted to be a local business that accepts it as payment. Not only is it easy to accept, but it’s a great way to broaden my businesses acceptance of alternatives to paying with just cash, checks, or debit. The future is coming.”

One legitimate objection to accepting cryptocurrency at one’s business is that it’s subject to wild swings in price.  When a business needs to pay its vendor quickly and that vendor’s not yet onboard with crypto, that means some of the crypto needs to be converted to the dreaded government “fiat” currency – the US Dollar.  Central Bank money like US Dollars do not go up in value by design and only lose value over time through inflation. While crypto can be wild ride, it does have the potential to go up over time, and in fact has. For those business owners who need quick crypto-to-dollar service, Anypay recently made it possible with their new ACH service that deposits the day’s cryptocurrency purchase dollar value into your bank account, within 1-2 business days.  If you’re in the Keene area and want to explore how you can begin accepting cryptocurrency from your customers, it’s easier than you think.

Bitcoin Embassy NH Launches in Keene, Offers Free “Bitcoin 101” Classes

Bitcoin 101 Class at Bitcoin Embassy NH

Bitcoin 101 Class at Bitcoin Embassy NH

Keene, New Hampshire has already established itself as a world leader in real-life businesses accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at their cash register. Now local area cryptocurrency advocates have taken the next step and opened an educational center to help people learn about crypto – the Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire.

The Bitcoin Embassy NH joins others around the globe, and is the second in the United States. The first Bitcoin Embassy in the US was Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy, which opened earlier this year.

With the goals of education, networking, and inspiration, head ambassador and instructor Chris Rietmann opened the doors to the Bitcoin Embassy NH in October and has already created a “Bitcoin 101” class that is free to take! Though, donations are certainly welcomed if you find the class valuable. Classes are also available for those looking to learn how to accept crypto at their businesses.

Already the Embassy has received coverage in the Keene Sentinel, NH Public Radio, and a front page feature in the Monadnock Shopper News.

The Bitcoin Embassy New Hampshire is open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday and is located inside Route 101 Local Goods at 661 Marlboro St. in Keene, NH.

Of course, the Bitcoin Embassy NH is just the latest development in the area. We already have an active Meetup group with meetings every six days and Telegram chat room, so please connect with either or both of those to join the cryptocurrency community in the Monadnock region.
