Located in the north-east of Thailand, the new café has become home to cryptocurrency traders, with banks of screens showcasing the latest market movement and sharing investment advice.

Customers at HIP Coffee & Restaurant are able to sit at their laptops whilst enjoying a cup of coffee and a cake and also exploring the surging interest in digital assets. Cryptocurrencies have been gaining momentum in Thailand, with as much as $7.6bn in digital asset traded in November, according to the latest official data.

With a crypto makeover in 2020, the HIP café has since doubled its customers and Manager Oakkharawat Yongsakuljinda said that the café provides alternative investment opportunities for people in the surrounding Nakhon Ratchasima province.

Offering free investment consulting, the café is also planning on starting its own cryptocurrency. According to customers, trading in the café offers them the best chance of success in a volatile market.
