CoinDesk doesn't work in Opera. At all. I guess I must be the only person using Opera.

I don't understand too why the coffee-prize rises at least 500 percent when freed from middlemen ... I've never seen a coffee so expensive

Perhaps i skimmed to quickly, but I did not find the reference to $50 a pound.

As for targeting the middleman... middlemen are usually playing a role.  I love how up in arms people get with middlemen... if it was easy, everyone would do it.

Now if there is some sort of barrier or holding hostage of the product, well yeah, bureaucracy sucks sometimes.... kind of why we're all using bitcoin, eh?

If bitcoin can help, awesome!
