Introducing Bitcoin to Merchants & Customers


Saturday, April 27th, 2013 8:00PM
Location Unknown

the first order of business would be to make a list of people that would like to spend their bitcoins in Montreal. Please write a post below if you live in the greater Montreal area and would like to spend your bitcoins there. Also include an idea of what type of business we should go after.

I'm thinking a small no-name restaurant that delivers good food would be a good place to start.

Bitcoiners in or around Montreal

-Brunic
-br00t
-knight22
-Murphant
-tac12345


Bitcoiners in or around Toronto

-Vitalik Buterin
-impulse
-teflone
-betafall



We have a hairdresser just of the island of Montréal that accepts bitcoin, but now we want more merchants saying: Tabarnack, bitcoin c'est l'avenir!

The thing with these early adopters is we shouldn't try and convince them to adopt Bitcoin because of what it does but why they should care about Bitcoin in general. The early adopter probably will not see an immediate benefit to offering this payment option, hell it might even be an extra cost they absolutely can't afford right now.. But they might want to adopt it because they believe in the reasons for why one should use Bitcoin and maybe in time, with enough early adopters they'll start seeing some benefits of extra customers ect..


So I guess what I'm trying to get a cross is don't focus on the financial benefit for these early adopter businesses but rather on the value of innovating their business to themselves with a potential of a benefit far off in the future..

i agree with you,

but i think restaurants will see a huge benefit for taking bitcoins...

look : http://en.restoboom.com/intro?redirectUrl=home.action%26ref%3Drestomtl-top&useDefaultCategory=true#

many business are willing to give 50% off simply for buying their product or service online using Groupon.

I'm sure their is some hassle involved with working with Groupon. it might actually be more of a hassle then dealing with pit-pay.

The free publicity aspect can be a selling point.

That thread alone was looked by more than 280 people.

Local media will surely wants to write a story about a restaurant accepting a new digital currency.

Anything existing or coming up for Toronto?

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.

We're all about the coin :-) I am definitely interested in seeing Canada take a leadership position vis-a-vis digital currencies in general and Bitcoin in particular. In order for this to happen I think there needs to be some clarity regarding the various legalities. I have started talking to people in government (FINTRAC, OSFI, etc) about this issue and I hope others will do the same. I am starting to think that an organization like openmedia.ca might be a partner to the BTC community... but I digress. I like many others here am fascinated by the idea of Bitcoin as a standalone currency but I also am very firmly convinced that the underlying technology will lead to ancillary uses of the coin (or some variation of the current blockchain) that are extremely compelling. People far smarter than me have expounded on these ideas and I think we can all agree they have quite a bit of merit. I would like see this amazing technology and the associated ecosystem move out of the "shadows" and ease into the mainstream. Is the coin 100% ready for the masses? Probably not by a longshot but I think we are at the stage where we either start thinking of pushing for mainstream acceptance in the legal sense (if not actual adoption as a currency) or accept being relegated to the status of novelty item for the forseeable future. My two cents.

Also I think the idea of a Montreal meetup is really cool ... seems like there are probably at least 5 - 10 of us who are pretty active? I'm down if people want to meet up...

Bump.

Any new bitcoiners in or around Montreal?

If all goes well, we will have many merchants waiting to take our bitcoin in exchange for goods and services, next spring!

In Florida I plan to open a general convenience (feed/dog tags/ convenience items, and plenty more, tobacco, beer,etc) and will accept Bitcoins. If I manage to get the oil contract again I'll also be able to buy gasoline from me in Bitcoins on the spot, in the physical location.
