Not that I fully buy into the concept that until we start using Bitcoin to pay for milk the currency is doomed, mind you. There are plenty of examples of currencies and commodities which aren't used to transact in day to day life, and do quite well, thank you. There are entire areas of the world where the currency used for day to day transactions is PRECISELY the one that's in trouble, and people prefer to use other currencies as a store of value, or to purchase larger things like cars and homes.
But still, if you're going to pay someone who takes BTC, then just buy whatever BTC you need to pay them and transfer it... at least you'll get the exchanges moving.
I said we were doomed as a joke,
actually, I am bullish hoarder,
and quite happy with the new options btc has brought
for example, now I am able to sell software,
before, there was so much bureaucracy in my country
that I just did not want to waist time and energy.
to get the online merchant accounting, banks require prior volume of my sales, which was zero,
then my country requires that I employ myself and pay all healthcare and pension fund and on and on...
now there is no one racketeering me
