Bitcoins: A Passing Fad or a Hot Contender?

Bitcoin Accepted Here One of my clients recently requested to accept Bitcoins at their eCommerce store. Like a good business person, I said no problem! I promised this because I knew that I could easily get a handle of all this Bitcoin mania and learn how it works and most importantly how to enable it and keep my client secure and sell their products with confidence.

After doing a lot of research, there is still much to learn.  My concern is the volatility of the value of Bitcoin.  The jury is still out for me as to whether Bitcoins are here to stay. But I am willing to play along with caution. I will accept Bitcoin as a new experiment.

Check out the value of 1 BTC :


Notice: Prices are now (by default) gathered from multiple Bitcoin markets, and averaged by trade volume..

What is a Bitcoin?

(source wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin )

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency introduced as open source software in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto. It is a cryptocurrency, so-called because it uses cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money.[5] Conventionally “Bitcoin” capitalized refers to the technology and network whereas lowercase “bitcoins” refers to the currency itself.[6]

Bitcoins are created by a process called mining in which participants verify and record payments in exchange for transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins.[7] Users send and receive bitcoins using wallet software on a personal computer, mobile device or on the web. Bitcoins can be obtained by mining or in exchange for products, services, or other currencies.[8]

For Merchants:

I think that Coinbase and Bitpay are the current leaders in accepting Bitcoin payments in an all-in-one solution.
Both have WordPress Plugins and are easy to integrate into your website.

Coinbase

Coinbase is a more full service approach. It combines:

  • an online wallet
  • the ability to transfer money from a bank account
  • the ability purchase bitcoin directly through their service (though the BTC actually comes from the major exchanges)
  • payment processing similar to BitPay

Coinbase Pricing

It’s free for now.  No fees.

Special promotion:

  • 0% fees up to $1 million when you use the Instant Exchange Method.
  • Coinbase charge 1% to convert bitcoin into your local currency.
  • Note that your bank or payout method may have additional fees that do not go to Coinbase.  For example, there is a $0.15 per ACH bank payout fee in the U.S.

Bitpay
