BitPay Signs 1,000 Merchants to Accept Bitcoin Payments
It may be getting easier to buy with Bitcoin.

http://www.americanbanker.com/issues/177_176/bitpay-signs-1000-merchants-to-accept-bitcoin-payments-1052538-1.html

BitPay, an Orlando-based company that helps online merchants accept the digitized currency as payment, said Tuesday more than 1,000 merchants have signed up for its service in the past year.
...

BitInstant, a New York-based start-up, told American Banker recently the company plans to introduce a reloadable, pre-paid debit card that will enable users to convert bitcoins to dollars for use wherever MasterCard is accepted.

It seems to me this article has originated as a press release from BitPay...  but as it's been picked up by a few outlets it seems notable.

Bitcoin lets users move money instantaneously to others on the bitcoin network. The virtual tender had an estimated 740,000 users worldwide in 2011. Gallippi estimates the number now stands at more than a million.

Brian saw our press release and called me today for an interview.  The quotes I gave him were from the interview, so the article is a nice expansion upon the basic annouceent.
