“I would take my salary in Bitcoin if merchants accepted it.” The way Bitcoin wins is if WE show demand for the merchants who ALREADY DO accept it. 10,000’s of merchants accept Bitcoin, but we can’t find them online. Screw another website tracking price. We need a website that facilitates trade.

If you think that this ecosystem is too big for you to make an impact, you're sadly mistaken. The guy who started Coinmarketcap.com was a college kid living in Brooklyn.

It's up to us to build the future. It's up to us to drive demand. Many merchants offer a discount for paying in Bitcoin – Fuck it, I'd gladly pay 5% more if you let me pay in Bitcoin.

Create a website. Make a little database search. Email merchants asking if they want to be listed.

Get popular, make a millino bucks no problem.

Microsoft was started in a garage. Coinmarketcap was started by a guy who bought a website domain sitting in his bedroom.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

From 1993 to 2009 Bill Gates invested $1B+ into Encarta the online encyclopedia but was eventually crushed by Wikipedia. This should be a lesson for financial institutions trying to understand Bitcoin. Currently BTC is where Wikipedia was in the early 2000`s. Watch out banks.

Total banking outage at National Australia Bank (NAB) – no ATMs, online banking, nothing. NAB has closed accounts of Bitcoin related customers since 2014. Centralized banking doesn’t work, payback’s a bitch.
