The New Indian Express reported that Shubham Saini is the tea vendor who is accepting cryptocurrency. He invested 30,000 when he first opened his tea shop in Bengaluru’s Marathahalli neighbourhood.
According to the story, he opened this tea shop after losing a significant sum of money trading cryptocurrencies in 2021 when the market crashed.
After comparing US dollars to Indian rupees for cryptocurrency payments, Saini has posted a sign where he updates the costs.
