An out-of-town customer who claimed to be involved in cryptocurrency left Mariana Lambert, a server in Pennsylvania, USA, a gratuity of about 3,000 dollars on a restaurant order for USD 13.25.
Eric Smith visited Alfredo’s Cafe, and manager Zachary Jacobson was there when he did. According to Jacobson, Smith was “simply trying to give back to the community” because he is “originally from the area.”
The enormous tip, which Jacobson claims “truly helped out” Lambert, who has been working at the Scranton eatery for around two years, has brought tears of pleasure to the waitress.
Similar to their counterparts in many other nations, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe negative influence on the US restaurant industry, costing many of them their employment and considerable amounts of income.
Even if the tip was given in fiat money, cryptocurrency investors use tips given in bitcoin (BTC) and other coins to spread awareness of crypto worldwide and encourage others who have not yet begun using and investing in cryptoassets.
After a video of a cryptocurrency fan tipping an Argentinian waitress in bitcoin went viral in March, he gained notoriety.
The customer carefully explained to the perplexed waitress how she could receive a bitcoin tip of USD 20, or approximately BTC 0.00524 at the time, in a matter of seconds.
What should I do with this now? It was her.
The clearly hodler friend of the customer responds with some financial guidance, “You hold it for 20 years.”
