Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

I wish a little of that bitcoin sentiment would blow over to the island here (victoria bc)
half the people I know are living with woodstove heating and no computers(!) total luddites! its funny because they are such anarchists that I thought they would all love cryptos, but alas, the same internal power struggles and high-school dynamics that led them to rebel against society have also made them bitter, narrow minded and paranoid. maybe i need some new friends lol.
sigh. its always more exciting over in van groovy! good work guys!

I guess that's why you started posting on the forums. Cheesy  We would like to bring some Bitcoin cheer to Victoria, but we need more helpers--we have none over there.

I can inquire around. I know a book store downtown that accepts it, and a cafe, i dont think they do much business. I dont know many tech sector types, but I'll put the word out, maybe we can get something going.

Dont expect too much too soon. I suspect the interested parties are already paying attention, probably have been in contact with you... it is seriously difficult to get anything new rolling here. I came here 10 years ago to run a friends art gallery and I was paying money from my own pocket to keep it open, I had to beg people to come to shows, i advertized FREE WINE!!!! I'm not really involved too much any more, but 10 years later they are still struggling to stay afloat. Victoria is a very insular small town and everyone is very resistant to new ideas and change.

If there;s anything I can do to help, or if you have suggestions for helping me evangelize the bitcoin let me know. I do what I can but it is frustrating... the reaction is only ever one of 2 things...they already know everything they want to know, or, outright dismissal.

Well, if it doesnt' work out, you're always welcome at the Vancouver CoinFest. Smiley Discount on hotel rooms if you pay with Bitcoin.
