Remember those times when jukeboxes were popular, and were found at every bar and restaurant? Well, they are making a comeback in a digitized form.

By installing the related app on a mobile device plugged into a stereo, users can change the music queue by up-voting their favorite songs – the lineup is made visible to everyone at the venue. The top song picks are also displayed. This Bitcoin hack is a great way for bar owners to let customers create their own song list. Payment options – 0.0001 Bitcoins – are linked to QR codes so people can share music easier.
