Things are slow. People sign up then never sell anything.  Undecided

Yeah...I think the actual amount of money being spent as opposed to speculated with is pretty minimal...unless you count silk road. (And even then not so much)

Sold hundreds of my wares with paypal.  Have yet to score a BTC sale.

I'm not a miner or a speculator.  I am a merchant.

Right now, offering bitcoin payment as an option seems to be a matter of belief in cryptocurrency.  That needs to change into offering bitcoin payment because that is where the money is.

Definitely harder on folks selling specialized items.  For things like dice, it's a small crowd to begin with.  And the number of people in that small crowd using Bitcoin is well, probably quite minuscule.

Thanks for offering your products for Bitcoins though.  The more merchants that do it, the more people we can encourage to start using Bitcoin.

Thanks for accepting bitcoin. Just try and stick with it. Out of curiosity, what are your business's biggest expenses? I think one great way to get more merchants to accept bitcoin is to have what they need available for bitcoin.

Yeah, this was to scratch an itch about going through the process of designing and manufacturing something.  And I am a currency trader. It started before the advent of bitcoin.  So, no BTC symbol.

I'm run a linux cloud server where I'm hosting a lot of paying clients so there is no cost in this little project.

It's already discounted for BTC.  Maybe I can also throw in five dice of the next production run with BTC on it.

200 sets to go.  It's not like that's a promise I can't keep.

So I did actually buy stuff with Bitcoin. With personally minted coins. Feels good man.

I bought Counter-Strike from franco, and a Solar Powered Car from littlegood.
Looking to buy more things, but haven't found much of interest just yet. Other than this cute netbook.

Do you have something I want? Use the bear market to do some real trading. Increase consumer spending!  Grin
