Six years ago it was a figment of a geek's imagination. Now the bitcoin is on the cusp of mainstream use, with a  growing number of shops accepting it as easily as cards and cash.

Last September, Garry Pasfield ushered in a new digital era at the Old Fitzroy pub in Woolloomooloo, when he began accepting the virtual currency.

I think the payments in bitcoin for such things will really pick up when all the shops would be able to accept payments instantly via some mobile app. Has anyone thought of creating a bitcoin debit card? where the balance would be in bitcoins only?

That's sweet we might get a few more female adopters
Because you can now use bitcoin to buy facials, I guess that works for guys to but like shoes there are certain merchant products that are more demographically targeted.

Also woot female Bitcoin users ^^


I have a feeling that next year these numbers will fee micro but thanks for sharing.

BIG NUMBERS

$US509 - the current value of a bitcoin

$US2000 - average worth of a bitcoin transaction worldwide

70,000 - the number of daily bitcoin transactions

$US250 million - the worth of daily bitcoin transactions
