"Why you shouldn't rely on middlemen" or "Why Bitcoin is awesome for business." (self.Bitcoin)

submitted 30 minutes ago * by coinsquare_kits

We accept payments through BitPay - which has been really great so far - nothing against them.

However we reached a transaction limit today because of a surge of sales on Black Friday. We tried to raise the limit but it can take a few days. Orders were bouncing and we couldn't process orders! What a disaster....

....or was it?

Because of Bitcoin, customers could bypass BitPay and send us funds directly. We were up and running in no time - and no cut going to any middlemen.

Bitcoin saved us today. We think it will save a lot of businesses in the future.

Thanks for reading everyone!

- Coinsquare Team

coinsquare is a cryptocurrency exchange. for what possible reason would they use bitpay?

this is great

i love articles like these, almost like anthropological expeditions to some strange tribe. there was another one, about some sort of burning man style libertarian event that was also great but i cant find it in my back log

http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...d6bd_story.html

quote:

Then someone taps him on the shoulder. There’s a kid having a bad trip in the bathroom, and in this hectic, anti-hierarchical festival, Eyre is the closest thing to an authority figure around.

“I am God,” a longhaired 20-something repeats to the people babysitting him in a bathroom hallway. “I am a perfect logical machine.”

Two girls huffing nitrous oxide from a balloon and a guy holding a needle come by. The guy with the needle says he has a chemical mixture that if injected will lessen the effects of hallucinogens. “I have the solution right in my hands,” he says. Eyre decides it’s a bad idea to inject the longhaired guy with a mystery drug — even if it could work in theory — and says he won’t allow it to happen.

“Can anyone refute that it will work?” the guy with the needle asks.

either they actually got hacked or they're desperately trying to shore up the market through supply manipulation

was this the one where it was like 'for every retweet i donate ten dollars' and after like a million retweets he was all 'yes thank you for reaching the 15000 rts goal i never said anything about, please stop retweeting'

no, he would still be under the legal jurisdiction of wherever he was when his passport was revoked, but he'd lose the ability to travel and every other protection that a valid passport confers. it's like the worst of every possible world. he'd be ineligible for virtually everything while totally at the mercy of local authorities.

when Mehran Karimi Nasseri got stuck at charles de gaulle airport without papers that didn't make him immune to prosecution by france if he committed a crime.

i was thinking the other way around, because "they may be rendered stateless and, thus, lack the protection of any government. " makes it sound exactly like the original concept of outlawry which was 'congrats you hosed up so bad we are ejecting you from society. good luck having a giant target on your back because it is now open season on your rear end'
