“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

One year ago my manager said “No way in hell this investment firm will trade bitcoin”. Today my manager said that we will start soon!

I don't want to disclose any names, but I am really happy! I can finally understand something at work! A company came in to educate directors and management about digital asset trading and they agree'd to start by testing the waters on bitcoin. I know its not a big deal because there are bigger players in the game but the more the better! Its a small-mid investment firm with $ 1 billion capital. I loved how it took one year for my manager to change his mind.
