With all due respect, what planet are you living on that Television commercials are "old" to you?  Are you serious?  Do you know why they cost so much?   Because they reach tens of millions of people, all at the same time, and they are effective.  

Bitcoin has been nothing but "social media and memes" for the last 5 years and look where we are today with consumer adoption.   ZILCH.  

Nobody knows a damn thing about it *because* its just all of us circle jerking on YouTube and Discussion Forums.

The real advertisers advertise on television.  Anyone who thinks advertising on youtube is more effective than a prime time television ad ... well ... holy crap how out of touch can you get?

-B-

I understand you point, but there are a growing number of people that just don't watch TV anymore.  Well.... not traditional TV.  They might have Apple TV or Netflix. 

I am kind of an outlier because of my position, but I stopped watching TV years ago.  I think there are not many of us, but we are growing. 

But yes, definitely TV is still the best medium for advertisement.  I think that might change in 10-20 years


yeah that's me. i barely bought a new tv after ten years about three months ago. and all i have is netflix .

I feel like Circle.com is the first step of making bitcoin much more publicly accessible and with ease. BEing able to buy BTC instantly with just my cc is a godsend. No more waiting for bank deposits to complete, etc.

U feel this because u have not yet seen the scammers jumping on Circle to exploit the CC advantage. I wonder why people in Bitcoin dont understand that Bitcoin and CC cant go hand in hand. They are not supposed to handshake by design.

surely circle has security measures in place to help combat cc fraud. iof course there will be ppl using stolen ccs to buy BTC but thats why they have lower limits for new users starting out. i am not sure exactly what security measures they have in place but if they decide to go big on this, surely they will invest in good security or else they'll just lose money each day. they wont risk it.

I agree with the OP. It should be advertised. Not wishing any offense, but seriously how many Buicks would be sold without TV commercials?
TV commercials are usually absorbed without thought. It would make BTC feel "normal". So that when they come across BTC away from the television, they would feel comfortable and familiar with it, and readily accept it.
It is a great way to counter the fact that many businesses are accepting BTC, by getting the masses to actually USE BTC.

CC is considered a cash advance transaction when using the CC on Circle. It's not reversible. At least this is my understanding.

I saw a post on reddit (via zero block) that said something about circle blocking a withdrawal for $20 worth of bitcoin until they could provide a copy of their ID and a utility bill. So it appears that they have at least some kind of risk management system in place, however I personally do not think it will be enough unless they require this kind of verification on every CC transaction (which is also cost inefficient)

You will need to pay a premium for this service. They are essentially giving you a short term loan that is very risky so the premium will be large. You would be better off waiting the few days that it takes for a deposit to clear as it will save you a lot of money in the long run

Circle does allow this however you will need to pay your credit card company extra for the privilege for doing so (the fees associated with cash advances). IMO there is no real reason to need to buy bitcoin instantly as you should have some extra in the event you need to buy something for an emergency

If a credit card cash advance is not authorized then the transaction will be reversed. The fact that the type of transaction is more expensive for the borrower does not affect the reversibility of it. Circle is taking a huge risk by accepting credit card payments
