None of these companies are going to accept bitcoins directly. Payment through a payment processor is not bullish. It indirectly causes selling pressure on exchanges.

The reasons we didn't see much selling pressure after Overstock is because so few are actually buying things with bitcoin. Overstock did 500k sales total since Jan 9. 125k was on the first day... That is a huge dropoff. Bitcoin = failcurrency.

Don't you think you've heard this point quite a few times already but that it doesn't actually add up?

If people pay with Bitcoin then that means they will buy Bitcoin to begin with.

And for all those who decide to buy some Bitcoin, perhaps spurred on by the fact that they learn they can spend it at Overstock, Ebay and many other places, how many do you think will buy some and then immediately spend all of it? Almost no-body.

Merchants adopting Bitcoin will lead to more and more new customer wallets, the owners of most of which will buy more Bitcoin than they need to spend immediately, leading to more and more fiat moving to Bitcoin over the long term.

Why can't anyone follow the merchant-adoption idea to its logical conclusion - More Bitcoin will be bought than spent.


Many Bitcoin users will just replenish their BTC when making a purchase on these sites too, if they are still wanting to hold as much coins as possible.

Did you guys see this already?

http://www.c[Suspicious link removed]m/id/101356642

Ebay and Paypal considering (decision pending) bitcoin for all payments!!!

EDIT: meaning payments for anything

I´ve just read that google is also thinking about bitcoin as payment method. But its not official.

Anybody else waiting for an January 31st price drop because of China?

I´ve also readed that FIAT is collapsing soon and a new crisis will happen. Looks like a good time to get in Bitcoin... Or not, who knows Cheesy

Yes i am waiting for china crash bitcoin b4 buying, but I'm starting to worry that china will not flat out ban bitcoin.

FIAT has been collapsing soon for years now.... where did you read this?


I´ve read it on some conspiracy theory blogs so it is a 50/50 news. It also says that China will start WWIII soon to hide that the government is transfering all their money to foreign countries and such stuff.

EDIT: It´s german

China crisis on January 31

Do they have an exact date when reptiloids are going to take over?

Sometimes they see the future Wink But sometimes it´s panic news and bullshit I know. But I also see a WWIII coming.

I used to think that the moment a company like Ebay or Amazon starts using Bitcoin the price would jump to crazy amounts. But not anymore.
It will only reach crazy highs by mass adoption and not because of news anymore imo. We're past that.

They know that, but some of the day traders here are in full FUD mode going into the weekend hoping to ignite a panic sell-off so they can buy on the cheap.  It's getting kinda hard to dismiss all the good news rolling in daily. Two kinds of traders: the kind that profit from volatility and reduce volatility are good for bitcoin. The kind that intentionally increase volatility so they can profit from it are bad for Bitcoin. Doesn't really matter much. It's a much less fragile system than it gets credit for.

I'm happy to have learned that point and I feel lucky to have been able to pick it up quite quickly compared to many in here.

Of course exactly like that. I'm just saying it won't be the news itself anymore. Either way is fine with me Smiley

You are an exact example of what American politicians wants. Believe only our news. Everything else is conspiracy theory and BS. Sure and true, Irak and Saddam has mass destruction weapons. Assad has chemical weapons. And there are many more examples how wrong the "real world news" were.

I think that merchants adopting BTC won't change the price too drastically.  However, when more funds on Wall Street are opened, that is when the price will skyrocket, IMHO.

Overstock might be surprised at how much new business they get when bitcoin goes up significantly. Buying stuff may be the best way to take profits from a tax avoidance standpoint. I'm planning a whole bunch of purchases myself.

+1 it's fucking annoying that brainwashed tards still use the term conspiracy nuts when if they just took the time to look up some of these 'theories' they'll find substantial proof to a lot of them - they just don't get reported in the controlled media.

It is still a big problem for most people to buy bitcoins. There is a too long way to go till you can buy some. Sent your ID details, sent payment verification, sent money from your bank account (what takes 3 days and on weekends there is no bank transaction). And then there are the hackers... It must first become very easy to buy bitcoins and keep them safe. Then people will use it like money.

That, plus anyone knows how much coinbase/bitpay charge merchants to process btc? If it's lower than 3%? credit cards charge merchants will embrace it with both hands as it bumps up their profit margins. Once wall st sees that there's $ to be made and wider adoption they won't sit on side lines.

There's always 2 things to watch for when a new merchant jumps on the bandwagon:

1. Are they using a 3rd party processor?
2. Are they advertising it on their homepage? Now the Tigerdirect.com one is absolutely huge. But is Tigerdirect.com get less traffic than Overstock? But if you don't take the time to understand the refund policies, you may just stick with credit card if you're not interested in BTC.
