1  Economy / Marketplace / Dragging my artist friend into the 21st century! on: January 31, 2014, 08:48:54 AM
Hi all, i'm fairly new to Bitcoins but I can already see the huge attraction in being able to trade using this. I've been mining for about 2 weeks now (with noddy USB sticks) but loving it.

I have a good friend of mine who is a Wildlife artist living in the UK, he sells prints (and original paintings) and is well respected in his field, but as you can imagine, artists know diddly about cryptocurrencies and computers etc, which is where I can try help (a little).

I think it would be great to set him up as a BTC trader (i.e. sell his work and accept BTC as payment). He's understandably nervous/confused about it all...

What quite frankly frightens me is the amount of scam and the minefield of trying to do this properly, so hoping a few very kind forum members can guide me.

So a few questions:
1) Is this a good idea?

And if so:
2) presumably I can look at the "merchant" tools to try help him embed BTC into his website etc?
3) Presumably need to set him up with a wallet? And a mechanism for exchange BTC for ? Mt GOX?

Want to take this step by step and take advice from the community as I go along.

Thanks in advance
Anis (aka Zangy)
