I've just posted the second list of businesses accepting payment in steem.
The number of businesses accepting steem is growing but the number of food selling businesses is particularly small.
Being able to purchase basics like food with steem will really help to cement its place in alt-commerce.
If I were to attempt a round the world in 80 days trip just eating steem-purchased food I might be a bit lean by the end.
[Note to self - The Steem Powered Diet - only eat what you can buy with steem and watch the pounds fall away.]
Although it would make a fantastic travelogue... Around the World in 80 Steem-Fed Days.
The itinerary would go something like this...
Fly from Cardiff to USA - remember to take a packed lunch.
Get a flight down to Guatemala and head straight for Atitlan Organics run by @squdsi1 .
Gorge myself silly in the wonderful organic restaurant at Atitlan Organics.
Fill my suitcase and my hand luggage to bursting with the wonderful produce from Atitlan - chicken, coffee, eggs, goats cheese, pork, salad leaves. The next leg of the journey is going to be long and hungry.
Well rested and amply fed its time to head across the sea and over Africa all the way to Port Harcourt in Nigeria. @Greatness96 's shopping mall and grocery store is the destination.
Amply stocked up in Port Harcourt it's time to head north to Europe. There are no flights to Germany at this time, but the there is a last minute deal to Gothenburg.
Landing in Sweden I meet up with @reko for a bit of dumpster diving. No steem involved, but no fiat money either so I think that counts.
Well sated at the bistro I hop on a flight to Cardiff. Back home just in time for tea.
So there are places selling food for steem all around the world - but they are rather few and far between.
We need more.
Are you a homesteader or small farmer? Could you follow the lead of @mnhomesteader and exchange some of your surplus produce for steem?
Are you a grocery or food store owner? Wouldn't you like to have a nice shiny 'steem accepted here' sign in your window?
Do you run a restaurant, cafe or bistro? Fancy adding steem payments to your menu?
If you are interested in taking steem payments but unsure about the technicalities do get in touch with me. I am currently researching and gathering information on the various payment options.
On a side note, for anyone in the UK who would like to buy their baked beans with steem check out this post...
