Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

Maybe you're here because you've received a tip on social media, or maybe you've just been hearing a lot recently about Bitcoin and are wondering what the big deal is? The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little bit about its long term potential:
For lots of additional video resources check out the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV . Peer-reviewed, research papers can be found here.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (from as little as $1 worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank account. A good list of exchanges sorted by region can be found on the exchanges wiki here.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Here are a couple useful sites [bitkoin.io, preev.com] that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The friendly folks at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.
If you want to contribute to the bitcoin network by hosting the blockchain and propagating transactions you can run a full node using this setup guide. You can view the global node distribution here.

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use established companies such as Coinbase and Circle which have secured wallets where they hold the bitcoins for you and provide insurance.
If you prefer to "be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many options in the wallets wiki. If you would prefer easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor, Ledger or HW-1 is recommended.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:
If you want to use 'bits' exclusively, just remember that there are 100 satoshis in 1 bit, and 1 million bits in one bitcoin. For more information check out the Bitcoin units wiki.

Welcome to Bitcoin!

Maybe you're here because you've received a tip on social media or from /FreeBits, or maybe you've just been hearing a lot recently about Bitcoin and are wondering what the big deal is? The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little bit about its long term potential:

What are Bitcoins worth and where can I buy them?

Bitcoins are valued at what market price people are willing to pay for them. Here is a useful site that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".
You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (from as little as $1 worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank account. Top recommendations include:
US & Europe
China
Also exchanges such as those listed below can be used with bank transfer in most of Europe and US
For even more bitcoin exchanges by country location, review these exchange country listings.

Where can I spend Bitcoins?

A comprehensive list can be found at TheBitcoinPage.com but some of the key ones are below:
There are also lots of charities which accept bitcoin donations, such as Wikipedia and the RNLI. You can find a longer list here.

Merchant Resources

If you operate a business and want to accept bitcoin as a payment method, there are several options available:

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun hobby but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The friendly folks at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can be your own bank and personally secure your bitcoins or you can use trusted companies such as Coinbase and Circle which have secured wallets where they hold the bitcoins for you and provide insurance. Be sure to only deal with reputable companies, if you have any concerns about a company's trustworthiness just ask or check their consumer reviews and ratings.
If you prefer to have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party you can use personal wallets for desktops / laptops, android and iOS where you alone hold your private keys. Electrum, Mycelium and breadwallet are popular, but there are many options.
Find a wallet that works best for you
For increased security use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email! (2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access). Google Authenticator and Authy are two great apps for handling 2FA.
Additional security systems such as Mycelium Entropy (for printing multi-signature paper wallets) and the Trezor Hardware Wallet are great ways to easily secure your coins. Or, you can opt to secure your bitcoin using cold storage.
Note: Do not use brainwallets unless you are an expert, they are known to be vulnerable to theft unless set up correctly.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. There's lots of discussion about which unit is the most appropriate so you might see people using different ones until people agree:
Unit Value Info
mBitcoin / mBTC 1,000 in a bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (ml) or millimeter (mm)
μBitcoin / μBTC 1,000,000 in a bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μl) or micrometre (μm)
bits 1,000,000 in a bitcoin Colloquial term with the same value as μBTC
Satoshi 100,000,000 in a bitcoin The smallest unit of bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:
Assuming the worth of bitcoin continues to increase, it will become easier to work at these lower divisions in day to day life.

Apart from Mycelium Gear and Coinsimple, what are other methods that don't rely upon a TPSO (third party settlement organization) for getting bitcoin payments direct to one's wallet?

In the U.S., a TPSO (third party settlement organization) is required to report payments made to a merchant on a Form 1099-K, Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions, if, for the calendar year, both (1) the number of transactions settled for the merchant exceeds 200, and (2) the gross amount of payments made to the merchant exceeds $20,000.
Coinbase is an example of a TPSO which reports its users.
Apart from Mycelium Gear and Coinsimple, what are other methods that don't rely upon a TPSO (third party settlement organization) for getting bitcoin payments direct to one's wallet, particularly in situations where one is getting paid to render a service or provide a good? Please avoid obvious answers like "OpenBazaar," as I am curious if there are now more decentralized processors (similar to Mycelium Gear, for example) to handle this need.
I am also aware there are only certain wallets that will provide a reasonable level of security (e.g.... not web wallets, instead, using wallets such as Mycelium, Electrum, Core, Trezor, etc) so that anything you do in having something sent direct to your wallet in this way will not be compromised and / or so that you can avoid having the private keys in someone else's control. I'm simply interested in knowing if there are more decentralized processors out there.

New user to bitcoin

I am going to start out slow. I have signed up for coinkite, and have added every level of security to my account (two-factor authentication, multiple recovery emails/passwords).
I think for now I am just going to earn free bitcoin through survey and video offers, and maybe build a few USD worth of bitcoin while I try to research exactly how I can participate.
So, I ask all of you: I've read through the bitcoin wiki's and FAQ's, but what is YOUR anecdotal and serious advice for an extremely green bitcoin-er?

The Demons and Angels of Progress: BlackCoin Ecosystem, Industry, and Evolution

Having newly taken up the mantle as head of the BlackCoin Foundation, I thought it a good moment to step to the podium and offer something of an overview - where we've been, what's brewing lately, what's imminent, and, broadly speaking, what kind of vision is building for the year to come. A 'State of the Union' address, as it were, with a few revelations, a smattering of history, some personal reflections, and a good dose of encouragement about the months ahead.
At 8 months of age, BlackCoin is stepping into a new phase of its existence. I'll call it 'Phase 3'. Phase 1 began with Rat4 triggering a kind of decentralized Big Bang, sending a massive shockwave through the primordial soup of Altcoin. Therewith, a strangely huge, bright cluster of matter, energy, money and mind-power began its rapid expansion, leaving a 1500-page trail of btctalk thread, no small degree of ideological gang warfare, wild price chart action, and a barrage of POS aftershocks throughout the cryptosphere.
Then came Phase 2: the quest for order. We saw the inception of the Blackcoinpool, the BlackCoin Foundation, CoinKite integration, the new btctalk thread, the /blackcoin reddit, and Blkfeed where I am writing now. We saw well-organized initiatives like L'Isle sur la Sorgue in France. We saw rat4's implementation of POS 2.0, and a progressive mitigation in price volatility. We saw the release of the BlackCoin Music Video and its immediate rampage across social media. And then two things happened. Two 'Phase 2' explosions: David Zimbeck birthed his magnum opus, BitHalo/BlackHalo, and Joshua Bouw went to China. These two monumental steps, combined with all the other incremental developments mentioned above, have planted the seeds and set direction for where we are now.
Phase 3 as I see it is about two things: The creation of value, and the full arrival of BlackCoin technology on the world stage of business and finance. These go hand-in-hand.
While Bitcoin has begun to step meaningfully beyond the embryonic isolation of its first few years as a strange new tech experiment, Altcoin can scarcely be said to have done so. It functions mostly as a developer playground/sandbox on the one hand, and a zero-sum game on the other, where traders (and some thieves and bullies), hang out and try to take each others money. Such value as there is, is mostly in forward-looking potential. The price-action on our markets, however, is little more than the daily scorecard at a poker game. There are only so many chips on the table. They change hands. That's it. And while this game is intrinsic to all markets, even the most mature ones, it is not the basis of industry. Value is. And BlackCoin is now on a mission with all guns blazing to make that happen. For some indications about how, read on.
A large part of my work since wrapping up the BlackCoin Music Video (and even before and during production), has been in outreach to the business world, outside crypto. Persistent efforts over many months have yielded results, not least of which has been a great deal of steady buying. Many new players are at the table now. And many old ones have withered and are gone, often to the tune of 50-100K BC at a clip, and most especially during periodic heavy sell-offs. But the new hands are not like the old ones. They are not the cynical, coin-hopping P&D sleezebags we know all too well. They are established businessmen, buying-in with an intent not only to hold, but to build. They are a new breed, and a new brain-trust. I am amazed by the flow of fresh ideas they generate, and by how ready, willing and able they are to facilitate new contacts and connections across a multitude of industries. And not only to suggest but also back new initiatives. Including a new tech start-up of my own, about which more will be said in coming weeks and months. The new network is growing. This is life in Phase 3.
I'll bring this post to a close by recalling the great industrialist, Henry Ford. He did not invent the automobile (just as BlackCoin did not 'invent' crypto). The Stanley-Steamer had come into existence already a decade earlier, as the ultimate in turn-of-the-century 'personal-tech'. What Ford did was to provide a series of catalytic design and production moves that resulted in a mass-scale paradigm shift. He pushed the automobile through that watershed moment, to that click-point where suddenly everyone just saw that the automobile was no mere tech-toy for the idle rich. It was the future of transportation.
I'll leave it to the master-debaters, quibblers and hair-splitters to argue over the merit of my analogy. I'll even spice it up by stating my opinion that BlackCoin's PoS 2.0 is to Proof-of-Work what the internal combustion engine was to the steam engine. Now go have a field day. For additional entertainment and history lessons, have a look at the FUD campaign waged against Ford by the Stanley Motor Carriage company: see the sub-heading, 'Obsolescence' in the Wiki here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Motor_Carriage_Company
Now, onward and upward for BlackCoin!
And PS: my motto going forward is: "You can have any color you want, as long as it's BLK."

FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to Bitcoin!

Maybe you're here because you've received a tip on social media or from /FreeBits, or maybe you've just been hearing a lot recently about Bitcoin and are wondering what the big deal is? The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little bit about its long term potential:

What are Bitcoins worth and where can I buy them?

Bitcoins are valued at what market price people are willing to pay for them. Here is a useful site that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".
You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (from as little as $1 worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank account. Top recommendations include:
US & Europe
China
Also exchanges such as those listed below can be used with bank transfer in most of Europe and US
For even more bitcoin exchanges by country location, review these exchange country listings.

Where can I spend Bitcoins?

A comprehensive list can be found at TheBitcoinPage.com but some of the key ones are below:
There are also lots of charities which accept bitcoin donations, such as Wikipedia and the RNLI. You can find a longer list here.

Merchant Resources

If you operate a business and want to accept bitcoin as a payment method, there are several options available:

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun hobby but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The friendly folks at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can be your own bank and personally secure your bitcoins or you can use trusted companies such as Coinbase and Circle which have secured wallets where they hold the bitcoins for you and provide insurance. Be sure to only deal with reputable companies, if you have any concerns about a company's trustworthiness just ask or check their consumer reviews and ratings.
If you prefer to have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party you can use personal wallets for desktops / laptops, android and iOS where you alone hold your private keys. Electrum, Mycelium and breadwallet are popular, but there are many options.
Find a wallet that works best for you
For increased security use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email! (2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access). Google Authenticator and Authy are two great apps for handling 2FA.
Additional security systems such as Mycelium Entropy (for printing multi-signature paper wallets) and the Trezor Hardware Wallet are great ways to easily secure your coins. Or, you can opt to secure your bitcoin using cold storage.
Note: Do not use brainwallets unless you are an expert, they are known to be vulnerable to theft unless set up correctly.

Tipping

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. There's lots of discussion about which unit is the most appropriate so you might see people using different ones until people agree:
Unit Value Info
mBitcoin / mBTC 1,000 in a bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (ml) or millimeter (mm)
μBitcoin / μBTC 1,000,000 in a bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μl) or micrometre (μm)
bits 1,000,000 in a bitcoin Colloquial term with the same value as μBTC
Satoshi 100,000,000 in a bitcoin The smallest unit of bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:
Assuming the worth of bitcoin continues to increase, it will become easier to work at these lower divisions in day to day life.
Still have questions? The friendly folks at /BitcoinBeginners would be happy to help you out. If you decide to post a question in /BetterBitcoin, please use the search bar to see if it has been answered before and remember to follow the community rules outlined on the sidebar to receive a better response. The mods are busy helping manage our community so please do not message them unless you notice problems with the functionality of the subreddit.

Why Increased Transaction Fees And Off-Blockchain Services Are Not The Answer

It seems like most people agree that most Bitcoin transactions should occur off blockchain through third party services. The development team of Bitcoin also seems to think increasing transaction fees dynamically as demand increases will help keep the size of blocks under control.
The thing is, don't these 2 solutions completely go against what Bitcoin is about? By dynamically raising the transaction fee on Blockchain transactions, it becomes too much of a burden for people to use it for any form of purchase. People will continue to use the blockchain until it becomes too unreasonably high for purchases- it will still get flooded until it becomes impractical for anything except huge transactions. We'll probably still use it whether the fee is $0.10 or $1, but eventually it will become much too high for anything. If people are forced to use a third party service to pay with Bitcoin, then what makes it any better than Paypal or credit/debit cards? The service can still keep track of everything you buy, deny service to some markets, charge fees on your purchases, and you have to trust them with your money.
If we go with these 2 solutions instead of raising the maximum size of a block, Bitcoin will lose most of its values as a payment network. If I need to send $500 to a blockchain service at a time to avoid high fees on my $10-100 purchases, what is the point? It defeats the purpose of Decentralization since i have to trust the service not to scam me, track me, or prevent purchases. I can't send purchases without transaction fees since these services will likely charge something(and the blockchain would be worse). The security would not be good either, as passwords/cards/accounts can be compromised, so it would require the same protection that credit and debit cards require.
Transaction fees exist to:
  1. prevent malicious spam
  2. pay miners once mining rewards diminish
The current fees already accomplish this as most transactions with fees we see are legitimate and not intended to flood the network. Miners currently do not need more fees as most of the incentive comes from the 25 BTC block reward.
Please do not force most transactions to occur off blockchain with the burden of high fees. It completely defeats the purpose of Bitcoin and makes it no better than what we currently have. Doing this turns Bitcoin into a system that requires trust, has significant fees, and is no longer secure. Raising the block size limit when necessary is a much better solution. Thanks.
edit: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Scalability
The Bitcoin network itself can easily support much more activity, so I don't see the point in limiting it. I feel like people being able to control their money is more important than being able to run a node on a home computer on a slow internet. With Gigabit internet spreading rapidly, Bitcoin can easily support thousands of transactions a second.
edit #2: I'm not against off blockchain services that make Bitcoin easier(ie coinkite cards) or provide services like escrow, I just don't want them to be the only way to work with Bitcoin in smaller amounts.

Coinkite, NEO & Bee will end up like Mt. Gox, transparent or not, or, why centralize bitcoin?

Amid the wash of praise these companies are receiving for their proof of reserve support, I'm left wondering why anyone would think that "it will be different this time."
Here's some food for thought: Stuxnet was a computer virus of military origin that spread to many Windows machines through multiple vectors, but did nothing until it encountered Siemens Step7 industrial control software on the infected machine, at which point, it began to manipulate the software in an extremely specialized fashion...
The end result? It infected machines at an Iranian nuclear material refinement facility, took control of centrifuge motors, and spun them too fast, reducing their lifetime, all while avoiding detection by officials at the facility by replaying sensor data recorded before the attack started. The kicker: analysts are 99% certain this virus was created by the U.S. or Israeli military.
I'm not waiting for the Stuxnet of bitcoin to steal millions, possibly billions of dollars, from centralized exchanges or consumer wallets. I know the potential is there, and I'm sure someone is working on it right now... Even if an exchange supported proof of reserve, there is nothing stopping a smart person who knows how the exchange works from writing malware targeting their own exchange, stealing customer funds, and getting away with it.
I think it's time to get serious about bitcoin security. There is a reason Satoshi made the private key system, the key to control of your bitcoins, simple and easy. Consumers don't need a company like Coinkite or NEO to hold their private key for them. As a matter of fact, this is a really bad idea. They just need a small device (NOT A PHONE) that has a simple input/output function: input an unsigned bitcoin transaction, display it for verification purposes, enter your pin number, and output a signed transaction. It doesn't even need to connect to the internet, as a matter of fact, it needs NOT TO for security reasons. The signed transactions it outputs can be relayed by any internet connected device, such as a phone, PC, POS, ATM, etc.
Personally, I'm holding my bitcoins in cold storage until better options for bitcoin security start to pop up.

Questions Answers
How has your staff taken to accepting bitcoins? Do the number of decimal places freak out the staff? Do you have a minimum purchase requirement for use of bitcoin? My employees are simply awesome. They have dealt with all of this with a smile on their faces and have actually shown a lot of interest.
They don't have to deal with decimals because I have set it up so all they have to do is input the total dollar amount into a tablet at the register. The app automatically generates the code that the customer scans. It pops up on the screen when they receive the payment.
We don't have a minimum purchase requirement.
Hi. How many bitcoin customers have you had so far? Are you a bitcoin investor as well? I can not disclose exact sale figures or numbers, however I can say it has steadily been growing. We have a couple bitcoin paying customers almost every day.
I am indeed a bitcoin investor myself.
How many times a week does someone ask you what a Bitcoin is? 4 Zillion.
Plain and simple.
I thought bitcoins were worth about 1K each. How would it work if I forked over a bitcoin for a Footlong Tuna Fish sandwich? We calculate the total sale amount (i.e. $10.53) and convert that to the equivalent Bitcoin value (roughly 10.09 mBTC or .01009 BTC). We generate a QR code with an address and the amount. The customer scans that code and sends us instant payment.
You can take a look at preev.com to see what I mean.
Don't sell yourself short, 10.09 milli would be .01009. roughly 10.09 mBTC or .001009 BTC. Would be $1.13. You are correct- I changed it..thank you :)
Do you immediately sell the bitcoins for cash to take away the currency risk or are you keeping the bitcoins in your account? This has been one of the most complicated parts of the process. Since I started accepting Bitcoins, I have switched my Merchant Services Processor 3 times. I am actually looking for a longer term solution. Until I find a more permanent solution that is fully integrated with our bank account, our Bitcoins are remaining as is.
Since this has been relatively new we are still working out all the kinks in the process. I am not worried about the currency risk at all.
How have you been keeping records of sales? I'm planning to accept Bitcoin but am unsure how to do so legally as a business. So you convert to USD and simply keep record of those earnings? Link to en.bitcoin.it
I thought it took like an hour to confirm a bitcoin transaction. I remember reading that it was too slow for most consumer transactions like this. Am I completely misinformed? In our case, we have not had a payment take longer than 2-3 seconds. The merchant services take care of everything on the back end. A transaction has never taken us 1 hour to process.
Would you be able to pay an employee in BTC if they desired? There are no Bitcoin Payroll Services to my knowledge. I'm not sure how feasible this would be.
Is your store a franchise? - what do you do if the value of bitcoin drops? Does the company you go through for scanning take care of that? - what company do you use? - what kind of training did you give your employees? - if i wanted to start getting my local business owners in on this, what do you recommend i show them? Subway is indeed a franchise. We are currently using Coinbase to process our payments and I have personally walked all of my employees through the process.
I have found this page to be the most helpful if you want to show other small business owners: Link to en.bitcoin.it
It was most helpful for me.
Was really excited to see the fact that more brick and mortar stores are accepting bitcoin, of course even more so when it was a more well known chain store (compared to a mom and pop place) Has the news coverage about this given you more business from local bitcoin users? Whats you're current process for accepting bitcoins (how do you go handle payments, exchanges and such)? I hope more businesses will begin accepting Bitcoin!
Ever heard of Coinkite? and if so would you consider using them as a way to accept bitcoins (and Litecoins?) *They're like a wallet service with a credit-card esque terminal where you get a bitcoin debit card and can make payments through that (or the traditional way of QR Codes works too) I did consider Coinkite. They were very nice and responsive, just not the right match for us at this time.
How can I persuade other Subway Owners to accept Bitcoin at their stores? This is a very good question. I think it is entirely up to the owner if they want to start accepting it or not. There is definitely a learning curve involved along with some risk and doubt.
A good start would be educating them about what a Bitcoin is. Even if you ultimately can't persuade them, at least you have taught one more person about Bitcoin.
The second thing maybe to show them some articles or videos about me accepting it. Tell them I have been accepting it for over a month. If they see another franchisee accepting it, they may be more willing to try it out.
Many may be deterred by the initial costs involved. Perhaps eliminating those costs would help to convince many to come on board. You could also try telling them it is non-binding, they don't have to sign a contract and there is no catch. Print out a sign and set it up for them. Tell them to try it out for a week and if they don't like it- ...nevermind, I doubt that will happen.
Can you write a little FAQ for Subway patrons to convince owners in their area to accept bitcoin? Would love a little list of hardware, software, which accounts to create with which companies, etc. Most of the equipment used in Subway's are fairly standard. I have a Nexus 7 next to my register with the POS app on there. They would just need to tweak some settings on the POS.
If you draft up some questions I might be able to help you out with an FAQ
I'm most curious about the things that would encourage or discourage a small business owner who is less knowledgeable/enthusiastic about bitcoin from accepting them. I've thought for a while that there is a need for somebody to create a well-executed, hard to screw-up, system for small businesses to accept bitcoins for in-person transactions. As far as I can tell, nothing like that exists on the market today, and most businesses accepting BTC are mostly rolling their own solution, at a high cost in time for whoever is managing it. Would you buy such a system, if it was available? I set up most of my system by myself. It took a little bit of technical knowledge (and interest). There are people available that can come in and set everything up, I just wanted to keep it simple and easy. I doubt other business owners would want to pay start up costs in addition to take the risk of accepting a new form of tender.
About how much time a week do you spend dealing with Bitcoin processing related issues? What was your worst week? What are the biggest pain points in accepting bitcoins right now? Training staff, integrating with existing POS systems, getting reliable conversions back to USD, something else? I don't spend too much time dealing with Bitcoin Processing related issues too much. They go fairly smoothly.
I'm from Plymouth Meeting, which is really close to Allentown! I think this is awesome, I should come buy something with Bitcoins sometime. Also, what was the most difficult part about integrating Bitcoins into your store? There have been so many challenges from the start. I think the biggest one has been trying to explain to everyone what a Bitcoin is. For example, in order to train my employees, they needed to fundamentally understand what a Bitcoin was. I had to explain it over and over again answering the same doubtful questions.
We would love to have you at our store!
Hey, you run the Subway by Dorney Park? Wow, I used to live right near there, worked at St Luke's in Bethlehem. Nostalgia. Not related to BitCoin, but what do you think of Allentown and LV in general? How long have you been there? Where are you originally from? Yep, Subway Dorneyville. I was born and brought up in Allentown!
Do you have any BTC for yourself? Also, what do you think about altcoins such as Litecoin, Namecoin, ect. I do have BTC myself. I do not have any plans to start accepting any Alt. currency at my store. I think they are very interesting and we may see many more in the future.
Hey there Sapan, I'm located in easton and I was just wondering which subway it is that you run so that I can possibly stop by and say hello?! Absolutely! Link to local.subway.com
I spend a lot of time in Allentown. Where is your store located? I'd love to stop by and buy some subway with bitcoins. Link to local.subway.com
Allentown resident here. Which Subway? Link to local.subway.com
Hey, I go to Lehigh. I'm literally in the building across the street from you. I was also your 2nd bitcoin customer. If I happen to see you, I'll say hi. Do say hi if you see me. I'm always there.
No questions, but thank you from the Dorney Park team for making lunch for us on many occasions! You guys are Awesome. Can't wait till everyone comes back in the Spring.
You're a very smart man according to the fever going on in bitcoin. Thank you, I'm not that smart. Just a man with a Sub...and a Bitcoin.
According to them, you are going to be a millionaire by accepting bitcoin right now. According to me. They all are probably millionaires. I've gotten to meet some of them in my store. Great group of people. on bitcoin.
