Just want to know if this bounty is still good since it says that it would end New Year's Eve of 2011.  The time was very short as most businesses at that level would take almost a year to make a final decision.  If it is still good I have been talking to my store director at Best Buy as well as on their suggestion DB and they seem interested.  In fact they have asked me to write up a presentation which I just completed and will submit sometime this week to the store director and/or corporate leaders.  Let me know if I will qualify for the bounty because I would like it. Cheesy

Sorry, the bounty is closed already. Hopefully someone else would be willing to donate for the cause.

Looks like it's too late QK

From Linode's Lee Matos:

Quote
I do not know of our plans to accept bitcoins as payment. I think that it is safe to say that we will not be accepting bitcoins until they widely used across the public sector. I hope this helps!

I presume this type of hesitation to accept bitcoins until bitcoins are 'widely used across the public sector' is prevalent excuse across many businesses, and without any of them taking initiation and instead preserving hesitation, then there will never be an established 'wide use across the public sector.'

I don't expect that the government will ever accept bitcoins.
governments with strong currencies wont accept bitcoins

governments with traditionally weak ones like simbabwe will

I doubt that any business with 100 millions USD of revenue would accept bitcoins right now. Do you realize how much a 1% shift in Bitcoin price (which happens everyday) would affect the company? Million dollar companies don't play the roulette with their revenues. Every dollar is accounted for.


the main problem of companies is less bitcoins volatility but its dividability, how can you liquidate, bitcoin when you have to pay 1000 employees?

I'm offering a 1000 BTC bounty for getting a major business to accept Bitcoins as payment. Conditions:

  • The business should have at least tens of thousands of customers and a revenue of at least 50 -100 million USD.
  • The business must accept Bitcoins as payment for the most of their services.
  • The business must provide a reasonably convenient way to pay with Bitcoins. If it's an internet business, they should process the Bitcoin payments automatically.
  • The bounty recipient(s) must prove that they convinced the business to start accepting Bitcoins. Contact Sirius by a PM or IRC when the business has shown interest in accepting Bitcoins.
  • The bounty will be paid when the business has accepted Bitcoins as payment for 3 months. If they accept Bitcoins for less than 3 months but at least 3 weeks, the bounty will be 200 BTC.
  • The bounty expires on 31.12.2011. The business must make the decision to try out Bitcoins before that.
  • These terms are subject to change.

Ask me if you're unsure if your business qualifies. Feel free to contribute to the bounty amount.

Suggestion: Try to get a poker site to accept BTC Smiley

Is this still up for grabs? :-)
