One Bitcoin Dev was detained for 12 hours at a US airport after telling them he was there to attend a Bitcoin conference (Scaling Bitcoin last year.) After a shift change, nobody knew why he was being detained and then he was released.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I run a airport shuttle bus in Australia and put a ‘Bitcoin accepted here’ sign in the bus. This is what most people think.

I have had the sign up for about 8 months. My passengers are mainly 35 y/o +

85% of passengers make a remark about the sign and are suprised to see it. They say I am the first person they have seen that accepts Bitcoin as payment.

Nearly all of those passenger have heard of it prior to seeing the sign but are confused about it and have been wrongly informed. Common remarks are "how do you give me change from a $ 10,000 coin?" "It's easy for hackers to steal all the coins" "how do you even pay with Bitcoin?".

As a Bitcoin/crypto supporter I feel I need to do my part in educating people and keep spreading the good word of our Bitcoin overlord.

The sign is a great conversation starter and even though no one has paid me with crypto (yet) I look forward to the day it happens.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

DEA regularly mines Americans’ travel records to seize millions in cash. DEA has a network of airport ticket agents, bag handlers, others who feed it info on travelers so it can seize cash. It has been carried out largely without the airlines’ knowledge.
