Episode #41: Making Inroads With Merchants
One of bitcoin’s most-often cited challenges is the need for widespread merchant adoption. This might seem obvious but getting merchants to accept digital currency means we have to re-educate. Sure, Demetrick once asked a clerk at a Pho restaurant if they take bitcoin, and we applaud his efforts, but expect to have to explain yourself to straight-talking Americans should any of these highborn idioms leave your lips. Enter…SNAPCARD! They help consumers spend their digital currencies. Good onya, mate! Our guest this week, Michael Dunworth came into our studio and immediately we felt like old chaps as we both all try and rethink the way that merchants accept digital currency. Who is Michael?

So you know…this episode is important. Did we just label our own podcast as important? Bloody oath we did!
