Bitcoin's popularity is already exploding within the libertarian free state project.

The Free State Project is a group of 20,000 liberty lovers who are all moving to the freest state in the USA, New Hampshire.
They are all working together to make it even freer than it is today.

Some examples of Bitcoin taking off in NH are:

Free State Project home page:
http://freestateproject.org/getinvolved/donate.php

Free Keene news website:
http://freekeene.com/contribute/

Free Talk Live (based in NH)

And I am sure many more.

If you are aware of other NH based businesses accepting Bitcoin,  please post them below.

Nice! Just keep on building critical mass and even the non-libertarians will accept bitcoin.

I lived in New Hampshire when I first heard about Bitcoin last may. I have recently moved to North Carolina.

Unfortunately, bitcoin has not reached a "critical mass" in that state. I knew of only a few people that had even heard of it, and they were all friends.

One day, just not today.

I was just thinking the other day where to go on vacation this year. New Hampshire is one of the few states I've yet to visit, along with Vermont and Maine. I'm now penning it on my calendar to coincide with the fall foliage. Thanks, Roger!

To paraphrase Leonard Cohen: First we'll take New Hampshire, then we'll take Berlin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvmt2TeI_2w (excellent cover by Jennifer Warnes)

Quote
They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I'm coming now, I'm coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

If you're planning on going to NH, Porcfest is the best time to go! Basically, 2000 libertarians go camping, and do what libertarians do. Smiley

Roger is absolutely right that there is a lot of synergy between the FSP and Bitcoin. I had so many people come up to me last weekend, I couldn't count. Sold enough Bitcoin to them to give the local economy a little boost. The coolest part about that is that they're already using alternative currencies (see http://shiresilver.com/) within NH. Bitcoin is an easy, logical step, and many free staters recognize that.

most of those pages are for donations, which do nothing towards building an economy for bitcoin. the only thing you can actually buy is baklava. i think thats even better than alpaca socks  Wink

So, what you're saying is that New Hampshire is secretly going to change its motto to New Hampshire: The Donate Your Bitcoins to Me State?

This just in:

Every single organization in the world now accepts Bitcoin donations, well over 100 million of them.

No effect?

But yeah, early to call it 'critical'.

I'm also a Free Stater living here in NH. I'll frame the OP differently - Bitcoin has no "critical mass" within NH as a state, but is very close to gaining critical mass within the FSP movement here. Relative to the global Bitcoin economy, even all FSP members using BTC would be a tiny effect on the market, but would certainly serve as a proof-of-concept, demonstrating the currency being used for in-person and local exchanges. I've already paid people here in Bitcoin for random things (I owed a guy money for hotel room, paid in BTC. Owed for dinner, paid in BTC. Etc).

Speaking of the Bitcoin <-> FSP relationship, the FSP is doing a donation drive today, and they accept Bitcoin! I encourage everyone to donate, and show them just how awesome Bitcoin is.
