A Hub for Crypto Users in UAEA Dubai-based cafe, Bake N More, has become the latest company to add cryptocurrency as another payment option available to customers. Despite taking this step, Bake N More will nonetheless continue to accept cash and credit card payments, the owner said. According to his remarks published in a report by Khaleej Times, owner Mohammad Al Hammadi suggested the decision to add crypto to the list of payment methods was made in order to expand Bake N More’s reach. Al Hammadi also claimed the decision was because they “want Bake n More to be a coffee and pastry hub for crypto users in UAE.” Elsewhere in the report, Al Hammadi is quoted explaining how Bake N More would charge clients that buy a cup of coffee using cryptocurrency. He explained:
Our payment system does the conversion accordingly as it is linked to the price charts. For instance, if a bottle of water cost Dh5 [$1.36], the system divides it by the chart rate, we can assume 3.68, and calculates the cost based on that will be 1.35 UST.
