I posted previously that I operate a web directory and had decided to accept BTC and, also, to pay commissions with it. I received a great response from the BTC community and I am really excited about working with bitcoin but as I am fleshing out how it fits in I have come across a dilemma.
There has been a great response of people adding their bit coin based businesses but I'm debating with myself how to categorize them. I am thinking on one hand, create a bitcoin category and place all the bitcoin related sites there or, on the other hand, let the bitcoin people go into the category their business is in (i.e. shopping, automotive, services etc) and just state they are bitcoin sites. Most are eager to identify themselves that way and put Bitcoin right in the title. I didn't anticipate this so I didn't put a bitcoin category anywhere but I am NOT convinced that it would be better to have one.
I'd appreciate your thoughts on this - Is it better to provide a bitcoin category (which would eventually require the complete duplication there of every category both present and future in the current directory) or just let them place their link and identify with the product or service their company is about and mingle with the non-btc to evangelize them?
