RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK) today announced that Tootsie’s Cabaret and Scarlett’s Cabaret Miami are the first of RCI’s subsidiaries to accept Bitcoin as payment. Guests can now pay using Bitcoin wallet apps on their mobile phones.

Eric Langan, President and CEO of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc., said, “We have watched the rise and broader acceptance of Bitcoin in the marketplace, and the emergence of major, local events, such as the upcoming Bitcoin 2022, the largest conference focused on the cryptocurrency, April 6-9, in Miami Beach.
