How lazy are they, they even didn't take down that sign. I bet few bitcoiners already doomed by that sign before you.
Maybe other store which accept bitcoin through bitpay could stopped accept bitcoin in future Sad

I think other bitcoin companies such as Coinbase or Xapo should replace BitPay

Is this really a solution? It still won't be direct p2p bitcoin trade. You still can have company which could be attacked by hackers or worse discredit itself like bitpay did. And I thought that bitcoin community is aiming to be independent and free from 3rd party payment processors.

After hearing op's story I wonder now how many of these "Bitcoin accepted here" signs are in reality fake useless piece of cardboard.

I think it's a clever ploy to attract business. You draw Bitcoin users attention to your business and when you want to pay, they tell you that they do not accept BTC

anymore, and you have to pay with another payment option. It has happened to me before, so I now ask them before I use their service or buy their products.

They are not too lazy to take the sign down... It's just marketing gimmick to pull more customers.

Humble Bundle used to accept bitcoin too, until they stopped accepting it. Disappointing.

I am a post MtGox guy, but it seems it hurt badly.

I am yet to see any Bitcoin accepted here sign (I am from Spain), either really accepting it or not.

True, this tactic its called bait and switch, while I haven’t seen this tactic used with bitcoin, I have seen this used with other products.

Which is funny because I think quite a small number of customers would be brought in by such a sign.

I think this is happening everywhere.
I think the business owners got excited about "get-rich-fast" potential, but then realized the bubble has burst. So they just abandon the idea of collecting bitcoins.

Is the OP sure it wasn't a street theatre 'piece'? Sure sounds like he was an unwitting participant.

I wonder why do they put the 'banner' (?) there if they dont accept Bitcoin anymore. In movies and dramas, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency was most mentioned in crime. This is why people thought Bitcoin is only for criminal and is bad. I hope the public will change their thinking on Bitcoin and start using the new world's currency.

If bitcoin price can show stable value and increasing trend, I'm sure that bitcoin will attract more people and more trust for bitcoin.
For who that still believing on bitcoin, just keep in that way because without us, bitcoin might be more untrustworthy

I agree. As long as we have a trend of going upward... it will be easier for Bitcoin to go mainstream. However, the problem here is that most people dont trust Bitcoin and this result the price to drop almost everyday for the past six months.
