I know we like to focus on the "big ticket" users of Bitcoin, but this kind of adoption matters too. Thanks for posting it.

Spurn wild goose chases. Seek that which endures.

Great news. The more of these Mom & Pops accept BTC, the more it gets into the public consciousness as a legitimate payment mechanism. It's an important spoke in the virtuous cycle towards acceptance as current money. Let's have more of it. Smiley

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

I don't know how to feel about "imaginary money".
At least pretend you are not doing it just as a publicity stunt.

Heck, if bitcoin is imaginary money, then MP3s are imaginary music and JPEGs are imaginary photographs Tongue

Nice, but i think they better start to use mBTC for smaller transactions for getting used to it.
Like ... bought this computer in bitcoins for 500 mBTC(0.5 BTC).
