We have some leftover copies of the nice color laser brochures for bitcoin and bit-pay.  If you would like me to mail you some, send me a pm with your address.  They make a great tool when talking to people face to face. They aren't designed to be plastered around as ads, they have too many words on them for that.

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

in fact, now that i think about it more, i think future Bitcoin Conferences should be piggybacked onto other major conferences like CES or the Apple Conference.

attendees and sponsors could contribute to the cost of a booth which would provide major visible publicity for Bitcoin.  the interaction with other non Bitcoin attendees would be an opportunity to educate and expose large numbers of newbies to the concept.  Bitcoiners could even hold strategy meetings at the beginning of each day to coordinate "The Message" and be sure everyone is on the same wavelength.

certain Bitcoiners could be assigned to "Manning the Floor" spreading out to all corners of the conference floor with flyers, handouts, stickers, laptops, Androids, etc to demonstrate the various clients.  we could go out in pairs and and demonstrate the speed and ease of sending and receiving a few Bitcoins.

the comradery and spirit developed amongst Bitcoiners sharing a Mission and Purpose would be highly beneficial as well.

the Bitcoin Conference would be held next door in another facility and attendees could track back and forth btwn talks and attending the booth.

what a great way for Bitcoiners to meet each other and begin networking with each other and newbies.

edit:  booth workers could don Bitcoin T shirts.  perhaps Bitcoin merchants could bring their wares to sell altho this would require rules and a coordinated plan.

the key thing is matching the numbers of CES attendees with numbers of Bitcoin volunteers.

edit:  who knows, the Bitcoin conference could even get some spillover effect from CES attendees.

You've been reading too many of my posts. You're beginning to post like I do.  Smiley I like how you think, cypherdoc.

Yes, the square, no they don't support bitcoin.  It was merely mentioned they had a booth at CES.

I havnt gone through all these comments, but after looking through the pictures one thing came to mind that bothered me.  Who's brilliant idea was it to put skanky women on these cards...seriously?!  How does that make bitcoin look serious in any way?

More serious than barely dressed beautiful women? I gotta tell you, make wife makes the most serious faces when I'm looking (ahem, staring) at those, so I'd say that's pretty serious...

I agree , but i think they were specially made for the CES. Mostly guys and in vegas... so...
They have "standard" cards as well...


"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

that makes sense.

after thinking about it it became clear that it is rather ingenious.  i think bitcoin and the adult industry have a lot to gain from each other - think paycom in the 90s.

Quote
Visa, MasterCard and American Express aren't especially enthused that their products have become the common currency of Internet porn. Never mind the image issue; the sector is rife with fraud, defaulting cardholders and chargebacks associated with contested bills. Last year AmEx banned the use of its card for online porn purchases, while the other two companies charge vendors discount fees of as much as 10% of the purchase to cover losses.

Making virtue out of necessity, CCBill, Internet Billing and Paycom have since become the biggest middlemen between the banks and the porn operators, effectively serving as the handmaidens to the business by weeding out fraud and the operators who stretch the boundaries of obscenity.

  • no chargebacks
  • horny husbands can keep their anonymity
  • super low fees

cam girls would love this too... i think a bitcoin adult cam website is ripe for the picking, if you agree lets talk!

Yes, we are working with a few now.  But if you find one, let me know and we will absolutely help get them setup to accept bitcoins!  Anyone who owns bitcoins as a long-term investment will profit from wider acceptance of bitcoin.
