 Searching "bitcoin" on Amazon every time we visit it April 06, 2013, 03:40:42 PM

Let's commit ourselves, in army spirit, to always search for "bitcoin" whenever we visit amazon.
Even better. Whenever we see a search engine.

shiuuu!!..

This sequence from a simple integer count of contiguous irrationals and their logical decimal expansion of the first decimal place is called the 'main irrational stream.'

Trust me, Amazon knows about Bitcoin ;-) I am pretty convinced the also want to implement it. However, the one thing they fear the most is their conversion rate. Adding a new payment method will, unfortunately, confuse some people.

Till Bitcoin is more known, I doubt we will see it on Amazon.

Trust me, this would soon bring attention to publishers and make them more interested in publishing books about bitcoin

i went to amazon just to search it

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Of course they want to implement it if possible, as it will hurt one of their main rivals in the long run (paypal/ebay) but they are probably still concerned about the legality.

The way I see it is this would be one of the tipping points.

1. Amazon starts accepting bitcoins as a payment method.
2. Amazon starts paying vendors in bitcoins.

Do I see it happening? Maybe.. But this would drive some demand for the coin that's for sure.

Considering that Bezos prefers to dive the seas in his spare time, it is probably highly likely he does not even know what Bitcoin is. I am not going to even speculate how difficult it would be to set up a Bitcoin based payrol for a such a big company as Amazon (about 35000 employees). Amazon + Bitcoin ain't going to happen, sorry...

I would literally masturbate to that.

This is how i will look for a top. Ignore the price, the price is almost meaningless for assessing these things. the day amazon starts accepting bitcoin you will know we are near the top. after that id give it 1 more week for new excited capital to flow in then i would cash silver out.

Couldn't they just have prices adjust either when items are added to cart or in realtime?  Our ticker APIs do it, the exchanges do it, couldn't vendors do this too?

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

i noticed more people on ebay seem to accepting bitcoin, price speculation is going to inhibit it for a while yet i think
