"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." - Mahatma Ghandi

Eventually PayPal will support BTC as a currency, just like they support USD or EUR.  Then we win.  Smiley

Paypal has just generated lots of publicity for it's arch enemy bitcoin and it is even not bad publicity. They dig their own grave.


They dug their grave along with governments when they cut off Wikileaks funds. Now it's just the last nails into the coffin

I'm a little worried that the anons will catch wind of this little scuffle and initiate an all out war with PayPal, which could end up bringing negative press to bitcoin.

The big problem is non-US Users... for example i actually NEED the money on PP, so i can transfer it to Payoneer card so i can go to the ATM...

Sucks that this had to go, it was so simple to use. I never could get the hang of the ridiculous chain you needed from mtgox to libertyreserve to who-knows-what.

mtgox can do direct bank transfers in EUR though, can't it? I suppose that would be even simpler if it works, since it cuts off paypal as the middleman.

I couldn't agree more with you on that. Although mt.gox has been easy to sell bitcoins, its extremly hard for me to understand how to transfer the USD to my bank lol.

Also, anyone having a problem getting mt.gox to open?

No, it's down here as well. I wish I could see current buy/sell rate, see if it broke 4.0 or if it went back under 3 now.

Thanks to those who have expressed appreciation for CoinPal and CoinCard.  I'll consider all the recommendations made here about PayPal alternatives, etc.  I won't pursue a lawsuit against PayPal.  Whatever publicity might be had for Bitcoin, I won't obtain it that way.

I was reminded of PayPal's blog post about Bitcoin.  It was two days later that PayPal contacted me and suggested ways to improve CoinPal so that I avoided chargebacks and reduced PayPal fees.  I would be intrigued to hear the board room discussions at PayPal that happened then and the ones that have happened this week.  Somewhere along the way, they lost courage in this experiment.

I agree with xf2_org's sentiment.  Someday, when people are depositing Bitcoins into their PayPal accounts, we'll look back at this time and chuckle.  It'll be a fun ride.

I'm more than happy to say nasty things about PayPal on general principles, but I wonder if they see bitcoin as a potential threat to their business.

I was using coinpal and gutted that it is frozen... I would try Alertpay they are used by some adult services etc. and seem to deal more with fringe type business also there is Moneybookers, but think this is mainly Europe, suits me as I'm in the UK

Why don't you allow for sending checks or ACH for people in the USA.  You would make more profit due to no paypal fees on your end.  Sure, not everyone wants that, but it would work for some.

In that context, PayPal's attempted rejection of BitCoin makes an even stronger case against them.

With U.S. maintaining even stricter regulations than most countries, I wonder if overseas currency exchanges might be easier to implement.
