Be aware that (at least in some jurisdictions) it is illegal not to accept local (government issued) fiat currecy in trades.



Which jurisdictions? Is this US included in this jurisdiction? I've seen a few soap shops that only accept BTC.

Well I am not from the US, but it seems so.

(...)

it's even illegal in fact.

If you offer a service and demand payment for that service you are forced by law to accept government issued currency. At least in most countries. (maybe not for all countries).

I can recall a case where some insurance company refused to accept banknotes (they wanted only bank transfers) and they lost the case. They were forced to accept bank notes.

You can bypass this law by having 1 cash register and plenty of bitcoin registers. If people absolutely want to pay with cash give them the worst cash-out experience possible.

I believe there was a news report on this, where employers were paying in bitcoins and one of the courts ruled that salaries will have to be paid in FIAT only. I do not know the country name and google ain't helping tonight. But it was definitely not US.

As far as trades are concerned, there are some loopholes because of which these BTC exchanges exist.

I believe we should make a list of shops and cities where bitcoins are accepted, will be lengthy and tiresome, but will definitely help spread the word, and if the BTC only stores get visited more often, might as well help persuade their neighbors to join in.

I don't know of any government or commercial lessor who would allow a bitcoin-only store to exist.

I'll stop accepting cash for my hoard (and only accept BTC) if people actually buy it.

I'm pretty sure its possible to have the lastest btc price on a small lcd screen or on a Minitor facing the people coming in. usd to btc pricing also isn't that hard. I'm wondering if anyone will make a crypto calculator that connects via wifi and tells the latest btc prices.

Edit:
And calculator would one like you hold in your back pack or pocket.

Only thing is, what is in it for the merchants to do this? They accepted BTC as a payment method, because it's cheaper than the other options, like debit cards and credit cards. Now all of this profit from the lower transaction cost is absorbed, in giving discounts for people who use this as their preferred payment method.

Only option in my opinion, is to give discount in the first few months, until enough people were exposed to this and adoption of BTC increased. 

If DELL did this, they would have seen explosive sales figures.  Grin
