1  Other / Politics & Society / Irishman fighting fighting law on medical marijuana.. please read on: January 25, 2014, 01:31:03 PM
Hello people of the bitcointalk forum..

I'm bringing you the story of one man's legal struggle to have medical marijuana in Ireland.

Mark became blind from Glaucoma 5 years ago, and finds cannabis to be extremely beneficial, and has had bad reactions to prescribed painkillers.
I am from the same part of the world, and avid bitcoiner, and would like to reach out to the good people of this online community,
that if you find it in your hearts to donate a small amount of btc, however miniscule to help this man with legal costs etc, to aid his cause.

Here is the story:

If you wonder what my connection is, and what are my motivations for helping, just read the story. If you feel like supporting, please do.
I, myself have only read the story this morning, and before that i didn't know Mark Fitzsimons. I have since contacted him on facebook (he wasn't hard to find, as we're from the same town and have mutual facebook friends) and i told him that i would like to help. I sought his permission first before i posted anything here. This can be backed up and verified by either me or him.
I would also add that i am not doing this for myself. Bitcoin as you know is fully traceable, all transactions to the wallet can be 100% audited and are 100% public, available to see to anyone and 100% transparent.

If you support this and would like to donate, however small, then please use the following address to contribute:

2  Economy / Economics / A compelling reason for traders to accept Bitcoin! on: October 19, 2013, 11:28:35 AM
I just thought of something.. that makes acceptability of bitcoin for real-world sellers of wares and merchants a total no-brainer.

Say i was to sell something i valued at 1000 - but took payment for it in bitcoin.

Right now 1000 = 7,24.... bitcoin (btc/eur @ 138)

Yesterday that 7,24 bitcoin was worth  only 833.. /BTC @ 115

last month it was only worth around 702,... @ 97

..so i sell something (a ware) today worth 1000 and gladly accept 7.25 btc for it..

and after a week.. month or so.. when i do my accounts.. that 1000 sale is now worth 1350..


Seems like a no-brainer to me anyway...
