BitPay is proud to sponsor this event and setup a "Bitcoin" booth.   The PAUL Festival is a large, Libertarian event taking place this week in Tampa

http://www.paulfestival.org/

In addition to talking about bitcoin to the attendees, we have permission to SELL STUFF in the booth.  So, what I would like to gather over the next 10 days, are some different products that can be purchased with bitcoins.

What I have so far:

Bitcoin Magazine
Casascius coins
Butterfly Single miner
BitPantry.com
Beesbros.com
BitBrew
CryptoAnarchy

We have a few samples from each business, and we have 2 iPads where they can order online from your website right from our booth.

UPDATE:  We will be sponsoring the concert performance of Tatiana Moroz http://tatianamoroz.com and have BITCOIN banners on stage during her performance, and at her meet & greet!

UPDATE:  BITCOIN is front and center now on their website!  Check it out!

UPDATE:  Photos from the event - with the bitcoin banner on stage!

Cool, so you have something your booth visitors can use to play bitZino (blackjack and video poker) or SatoshiDICE using real money then!

I'm going to be re-tooling BitBid soon. I've had a bunch of people sign up then never post anything to sell. Kind of frustrating.

Show them Coinabul.com. Or even better, bring an ounce of gold and offer to sell it to anyone who has bitcoins for 10% below spot price. You may not find a buyer, but it's good for conversation.  "See this gold ounce? You can buy it below market price... but oh, wait, sorry... we don't accept your silly monopoly FRN bucks."

It's crucial for them to see that they can buy gold/silver with Bitcoin. Make sure gold and bitcoin are presented as friends and allies to Ron Paul supporters Wink

How about some Shire Silver as well? By the end of this week I might be able to send a silver card as well as a gold card. I do know that many people don't quite get what Shire Silver is until they actually see it in person.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

Would you call investors along the lines of Steve Forbes nut jobs?

Steve Forbes: The only way to recover is to stabilize our money, have a gold backed dollar, simplified tax code and return to a free market.

Nathan Lewis: More people are thinking about gold as an investment. With banks in distress, bonds paying zilch, and “easy money” the operating principle for currency managers around the world, it makes sense.

Unless you want to trade actively, I suggest owning physical gold bullion. ...
