“Many tourists do not carry cash with them, and people from developed countries do not handle cash at all. Although they have been in circulation for 60 years, cards are still a high-tech thing for us, and we are afraid to embrace the novelties,” says Ivan Vuković, a tourist guide of Dubrovnik.

Paying with cryptocurrencies is very simple – you can have a card or a mobile option, which converts all payments into currency. “Simple, contactless – which is important for covid regulations and one more way of paying,” says Sasha Lusic, the owner of D’vino wine bar Dubrovnik.

Book a trip and pay with crypto or order your favorite wine and pay for it in the same way – life has become simpler. These two entrepreneurs are also targeting the younger gadget clientele because, as they say, it is sometimes difficult to change the habits of the older clientele.

Ivan and Sasha say the pandemic has given them a chance to reset and turn to slower and more sustainable tourism. “Why not offer something sustainable while letting people know that we follow trends,” say these entrepreneurs, adding that cryptocurrencies are gold today.

“Unfortunately, it is easy to be successful in Croatia because people are passive. Sad but true,” says Ivan. “Sasha and I are constantly exchanging ideas, thinking, putting things on paper. We are not passive; we follow trends very closely.”

After considering the idea, they made a few calls about whether it is possible to charge in that way. When the software engineers confirmed that is possible to do that, they just went for it. Some hotels and gas stations already have this option, but in the circles of wineries and tourist guides, payment in cryptocurrencies does not exist.

Ultimately, they are hoping for a more significant inflow of money, precisely because many people keep their money in various cryptocurrencies. They have to spend the money they earn by trading cryptocurrencies.

“Of course, everything depends on the season, but with this, we are doing a long-term story. Also, we are the first to remember,” concludes Ivan.
