The Lunlun Zou Guzheng Studio in Hong Kong put out a press release today noting they are the first Hong Kong business to accept the digital currency, which can be used to purchase Guzheng lessons.
The Guzheng is a 2,000-year-old Chinese instrument with 21 strings, and teacher Lulun Zou (who has performed around the world) is hopeful that accepting Bitcoin will make it easier for students to learn how to play Guzheng.
“We represent a very old tradition but it does not mean we cannot use the most modern technology. We intend to use whatever legal means is available to us to spread the word and the music,” says Zou. “Our interest is simply in giving our students and customers another way to pay that may makes it easier for them.”
thecaa cannot independently confirm the Studio’s proclamation that they’re the first to accept Bitcoin in Hong Kong, but if so, it’s certainly a notable moment.
