Sats/Bitcoin Merchants Directory Saigon

The Bitcoin Community in Saigon has these days thanks to the dedicated work of some people within the community been able to expand the reach of Bitcoin Merchants in Saigon.

Not only can you wine & dine at your pleasure at a variety of venues - our long-standing community supporter David Watson of Future.Travel (the first merchant in Vietnam to implement Bitcoin payments in 2015) will also get your flights, hotel and visa arranged - all for a handful of Sats.

With the self-given goal of “offering the most authentic Mexicali experience in Saigon” Tacos Fuego has established itself as one of the front-runners in the Tex-Mex scene in Saigon.

Established since 2019 in Bình Thạnh, the Tacos Fuego team built on their success and the growing demand to expand their offering also towards the Thao Dien crowd across the river.

“We’re just doing our part to fill that tiny void that you might have if you’re familiar with Socal Mexican spots. (…). Whether it be street tacos, nachos, or Mexican fries, we put all our effort into satisfying that craving for Mexican fare.”

Tacos Fuego is one of the newer spots on the meetup roster - with a melting hot Habanero spicy hot sauce & melting fast Lightning payments for your quick Taco fix!

Healthy fast food?

Yes, that’s possible with Pingu’s Burger.

The newly established Burger Joint in Thao Dien is priding itself on its 100% beef patties cooked in real butter.

Pingu’s Burger is a small family business with people behind who care and are looking to provide their customers with food that is healthy, hearty and prepared with ingredients sourced and selected in true P2P fashion from Vietnamese farmers.

None of the artificial crap modern corporations like to stuff in their offerings to chase that extra penny on the bottom line. Getting your Burger fix at Pingu’s, you support your local community and people who actually do care about having a positive impact on their direct environment.

And yes - you can pay for your beef patty burgers with Bitcoin / Lightning.

Good food for good money.

If there is one person in Saigon and possibly all over Vietnam who deserves the title as the doyen of Bitcoin merchant adoption in Vietnam, then it is Future.Travel’s General Director David Watson.

An entrepreneur from head to toe and with business operating experience across 4 different continents in his long career, back in 2015 they were the first merchant to accept Bitcoin for service offerings at the travel agency.

He and his firm have been a steady supporter over the years of the local community - be it the efforts around Bitfilm Festival 2015; BlockFin Asia or sponsoring the Bitcoin Lightning Node of the local community.

David himself is also a regular at the local Bitcoin meetups and probably the person who has set up the most people with wallets and their first Sats all across the country.

Style: You don’t go here to load up on calories - but to burn them!

Health is wealth.

Your daily dose of exercise is to be seen in the same way that saving capital is - you do the work today, to have a better future tomorrow.

Since Bitcoiners like to work, you can sweat out toxins & reset your hormone balance on a 24h basis at all current two (and soon more) locations across Ho Chi Minh City.

With more locations in the pipeline - so watch out.

This page is purely for informational purpose. As for the matter of the current legal status of Cryptocurrency payments in Vietnam we recommend to reach out to the following Vietnam-based Bitcoin companies: BitcoinVN (Bitcoin Exchange Service) / Neutronpay (Bitcoin payment processor)
