Meet Jörg Platzer, co-founder of Room77 in Berlin, the very first bar in the world to accept bitcoin for beer and burgers in 2011. Bitcoiners from around the world met in the Room, and their discussions sparked dozens of projects and ideas. Jörg’s stories and views about Bitcoin and privacy are refreshing and motivating, he says “The future of Bitcoin is so bright, we’ll need sunglasses” and “Freedom of transaction is a meta human right.”
