The BitLicense is a Trojan Horse that will slow Bitcoin acceptance greatly unless it is ejected from the city and burnt to the ground. Some ideas:
Some of the big bitcoiners like Bruce Fenton, Roger et al should pay the legal fees and take this thing all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. It's a First Amendment issue - what exactly is this state government regulating? The transmission of bits and data. A Bitcoin transaction when broadcast out to the network is technically a lot closer to a tweet or a blog post than a check or stack of $100's. It is communication, clearly. The fear is not that other states will follow this utterly misguided stance (they won't; states want money, and jobs). The fear is that the talent and big money that should be entering Bitcoin right now - remember it's almost Boom August - is not entering. It is afraid. BitLicense talk has cast a shadow over the entire industry. Take it to the Supreme Court. Get the cable networks talking about it constantly -- the "Judge" on Fox News should have an opinion on this. Rachel Maddow should have an opinion, O'Reilly, Jon Stewart, all of them. I can help with some of this. Nothing less than online freedom of speech is at stake. And for the plebes, best thing you can do is get something started on Twitter. Pick a hashtag (#FreeBitcoin?) and get it trending. The controversy surrounding this becomes the new media cycle. And let's remember: now that Dell accepts Bitcoin, this is clearly not the domain of money launderers or criminals. We're just people who want to be free. And we'll settle for nothing less.
Dell, Steam, Reddit, Stripe, Circle, Microsoft, Fiverr, Satoshidice, Changetip, Expedia, and many more stopped accepting Segwitcoin, while Coinbase, Bitpay, coins.ph, satoshidice, tippr, purse.io, dark web all are adding BCH support. One Bitcoin is blooming, the other withering.
I keep hearing about Dell accepting Bitcoin, but i can't seem to figure out how to do that. Bitcoin isn't a payment option (I just get Dell Preferred Credit, Credit Card, Gift Card, and PayPal). Has this been recently stopped, or am I missing something?
I checked out their site, it appears they no longer accept Bitcoin, is that the case?? I noticed this is a big trend. Companies start accepting Bitcoin then stop because the fees are too big and confirmations too unreliable because of Core's policy of a keeping Bitcoin clogged up and unreliable.
Sincere question, I mean no ill will: When you guys see companies like Microsoft, Dell, and T-Mobile beginning to accept Bitcoin, what do you think of that?
I'm sincerely curious. Do you believe that they're trying to do this for PR reasons, they're just curious, etc etc? At worst, do you think they're acting completely irrationally? And my final question, and I sincerely mean this without a hint of rudeness: When you see them accepting BTC does it ever cross your mind that they might be on to something you're not seeing with spotting future trends, as they didn't become such big companies by accident? My answer: I think the smaller companies, ones trying to get an edge, accept BTC for PR reasons sometimes. However, when it comes to the larger companies I believe they're starting to accept it because they can look into the future, see trends, and think that there's a good chance it's going to catch on. (I also realize there's so much more to BTC than merchant acceptance, I just wanted to focus on this topic) Thank you for your time
