Lately whenever a conversation develops with my customers, I steer the conversation towards Bitcoin. While most are interested and intrigued, none have yet been into crypto. If they show enough interest, I help them download a wallet and give them their change in Bitcoin . This St Patrick's weekend, with the city full of visitors, I introduced 23 people to crypto. Hopefully they will go back to their home countries and spread the word. In the last 12 months, I have introduced over 500 people. This is how I want to see Bitcoin grow, as a peer to peer method of value transfer, not as a speculative asset.
He did not take credit card. He drove me to an ATM at gas station, but it was out of order. The gas station and not hotel I was staying at did any have provide cash back so I convinced him to download breadwallet and I paid him his fare in bitcoin. First time I have ever used bitcoin in such a circumstance, but really shows the potential. The driver had heard about Bitcoin before so wasn't completely new to it and he also transfers a lot of money because of family from Africa. Hopefully one more believer.
