The Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the famous Las Vegas brothel that was the setting for the HBO series “Cathouse,” is looking to cash in on the bitcoin trend.
Dennis Hof, owner of the ranch, said in a press release that his brothels are currently looking at ways to accept bitcoin as a payment for services.
“We have some of the richest men in the world coming in and out of my brothels” Hof said. “Our high dollar clientele is accustomed to getting anything they want here, so when I started hearing requests from them to look into accepting Bitcoin, I took those suggestions very seriously.”
Hof said that his excessive cash trade has added to the desirability of the cryptocurrency.
“We have guys carrying duffle bags full of cash right up to our cashier’s window, and we’ve had to install a safe the size of Fort Knox to hold it all,” Hof said. “Not that I mind good old fashioned cold cash, but Bitcoin is making it so much more practical for those same clients to live out their sexual fantasies here at the Bunny Ranch without literally having to carry a lot of excess baggage.”
Bitcoin has had a volatile start to 2018. Since the start of the year, it has fallen almost 20 percent, including a 15 percent drop on Tuesday to $11,530.79, according to CoinDesk.
