Where do nudists keep their bitcoin?

The following public relations email landed in my inbox this morning:
 
I’ll just paste the first line here: “Bitcoin is now accpeted for payment at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park.”
 
It brings to mind the opening scene in my colleague David Brancaccio’s book from a decade or so ago in which he went to report on the economics of a French nudist colony, and finds himself clutching a a fistful of French banknotes… with nowhere to put them.
 
Think about it.
 
The book’s called “Squandering Aimlessly“.  It’s on Amazon.
