ha-ha-guy: Parkanzky: Let's say that I want to buy $50 worth of pizza at a pizza shop that takes Bitcoins.The other thing is, if you're the pizza shop what is your incentive to take this? The guy hands you the bitcoins to pay for a pizza and 5 hours later Bitcoins drop a 100 dollars in value. The real reason to take Bitcoins is to avoid the money trail and/or having to deal with the IRS. If you're a brick and mortar store selling a physical product, there isn't much reason to take bitcoins. Better off taking gold coins or something as barter than the bitcoin.What are they thinking here? You hit up the ATM before you go buy your drugs from the guy at the corner? All that means is that the cops will start camping the ATM.aevorea: I'm waiting for the article where the 'president' of the Bitcoin bank closes up shop and absconds with the money sitting in the various Bitcoin accounts. They're not FDIC insured so they'll be litlte recourse for the account holders.Considering a lot of the account holders are supposedly criminal organizations, I'd imagine it's mob style car insurance "You whack our car, we whack you."
