Scott Sears on Bitcoin and New Opportunities
Scott Sears: I'd say we're really enjoying the experiment so far and it has evolved beyond the "experiment" phase. As long as there are merchant services to shield us from the fluctuations of btc and automatically convert btc to USD at the point of sale, we'll continue to offer btc and will add additional crypto-currencies that offer reliable merchant services.
