Boycotting merchants that use Bitpay is meaningless.  From the merchants' perspectives it would just be "the 0.5% of our payments that are in Bitcoin has decreased to 0.2%.  It's not worth going through the trouble of having it as a payment option anymore, let's remove it".

Bitpay is in bed with the devil. That chinese money is really powerful, let's not forget Jihad Wu has unlimited PBOC money to bribe everyone in the game. They can print trillions to get everyone on board with the BUcoin agenda.

This does not look good. If the PBOC keeps buying everyone to kill bitcoin via replacing people's nodes with datacenters, it's time to dump.

Let's hope we don't reach that point.

Bad time to boycott BitPay and other payment gateways... Smiley But I do understand the frustration. But we also have to give them a bit of credit for helping to catapult a whole lot of new merchants accepting payments in Bitcoin.

Uhh...no. Fuck them. We can use Coinbase, who, as far as I know have most recently endorsed Segwit and Cores roadmap, unlike promoting shill hit pieces to protect chinese miners and damage bitcoin. Fuck bitpay all the way. Bitcoin does not need toxic shit companies.

You can boycott them if you like but there is not much we can do, your decision to stop using them and even to create this thread is understandable, but in the great scheme of things we are almost completely irrelevant to them.
