Hello. I like the idea of bitcoin, and so I want to implement it in Magento store.
I have installed the bitcoin payment method and everything; except for it asks for my bitcoind username and password. Where do I find my bitcoind username and password?, or how do I create it?
Also I am a bit concerned when it comes to using bitcoin, aside from the security risk of getting hacked, etc (I'll be sure to try to do everything that is needed) I need to often buy new inventory; so this means I need to convert bitcoin into USD in fairly large amounts (say, $500 to $2000+?) at a time - what is the best way to do this? What is the best way to convert bitcoin into USD dollars?
Also if you can give me any tips on anything else, such as security/encrypting wallets, etc it would be greatly appreciated. I normally UTFSE on this sort of thing, but I am exhausted from doing everything else I do with my store, in addition to a few other websites (forums) and I've really appreciate pointers right now more than anything. I am very new to bitcoin, and I am probably trying to implement it on a fairly advanced level. (eh, maybe not advanced)
Anyways, thanks for reading, looking forward to seeing some responses!
