Maybe someone should suggest bitcoins to this guy. He might be able to avoid being fined.

I paid off my car being towed with pennies once, $66.00 in a crown royal bag that I brought over to the tow lot.  The guy was pissed, but I pointed to his sign that said CASH ONLY and said in a nice calm voice......"this is cash isn't it?"  He looked me pretty angrily and said "We're going to have to count them."  I said I was happy to, since my car was there and I had plenty of time.  By the time we were done I was smiling, and he was pretty upset, and there was nothing he could do.  I haven't been towed since, hopefully never will again.

Odd. Isn't the legal tender supposed to be accepted for all debts public and private?

There is a difference between "all debts" and purchasing something at a store.  The gas station by your house has every right to refuse to break your $100 bill for a pack of gum if they declare it so.  But the person you have an official debt with (morgage, car payment, etc) is legally bound to accept your sack of pennies.

Exactly right.

No one is forced to trade with anyone.

This is intetesting though: while a retailer can refuse your $100, as they can simply forgo the sale, a restraunteur cannot. The sale happened when they brought your meal and you ate it. Leaving a debt.

Their choice is then to accept the $100 or not.

Here's the really intrtesting bit: they are not, however, obliged to give you change.

Um, do you think this company gets called out and declines to tow you because you paid in pennies? Maybe I'm inferring an implication that isn't there.

Your suggestion looks quite valuable but in reality I don't thing no such person has the power to do it. If such a single currency system is followed there will be economic outbreak between countries.

One more reason why bitcoin is better then any other currency. I think this is a good thread, it explains how governments can make their work much easier then it is now. Of course everyone will try to trick system and to use something in evil purposes, but even with that I think btc is better. Fiat brings much more bad things on this world then anything else. Facts are around us for people who can see the truth.

We can work and hope for bitcoin to become new global currency, if it rise enough after this halving we can expect miracles in years ahead us. Remember my words!

Bitcoin is going to continue to be a shitty currency as long as we have price spikes like we've had.  The US dollar doesn't jump or drop like that.  There is inflation, yes, but the dollar doesn't lose value as fast as cryptocurrency can and does. 

I hate spending bitcoin.  There's absolutely no reason to, for me.  I've got fiat and a debit card and all the places I want to buy things from take dollars, not bitcoin.  I love it as digital gold, though.

If the bitcoin has a stable price it's good to used as new currency that we can use but now i think that it's not the right time to use this kind of digital money as a currency.

But wouldn't they then have a debt with you?  Which they could pay in any means they wish!?
I don't fully understand why they wouldn't be obliged to give you change, why isn't that always the case then?

I found it interesting anyway, thanks!

Unstable price?it's not a big problem but I prefer and become my priority is legalism for bitcoin so that it's will make a community is easy to receive bitcoin become a part of their community.

Exactly, bitcoins is the new currency and it is also the best of all, and in future it will break all its records and will create a new history in terms of a currency.
