There are so many benefits to bitcoin," says Sonny Flynn, business manager at Alligator Attraction, home of Chompers the star reptile, who, it should be noted, doesn't care how you pay for his snacks. "It's hack-proof. There's no transaction fee. It's almost as if you are paying in cash."

With the ESPN Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl at Tropicana Field on Friday, and thousands of football fans in town to watch the tilt between North Carolina State and Central Florida, some 100 bay area merchants will celebrate by accepting bitcoin — paperless digital currency that can be used in lieu of cash, checks or credit cards.

This is pretty cool.  I wonder if they will actually mention Bitcoin during the game.

Yes they did a few times, but the broadcasters definitely did not know what it was. There was also bitcoin commercials by Bitpay.

Thanks for the links!  The one commercial was silly, but effective.  Others were straight forward and hopefully attention grabbing.

The first one with Tony and Stephen - they used the fig leaf!  Not sure how I feel about that.  I guess if it's good enough for these two, it must be ok:


Coinbase for selling BTCs or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.
PM me with any questions on these sites!  Happy to help!
