How many of your would do coding and be happy to get payment in Bitcoins ( or a fraction of a Bitcoin ).
Im in New Zealand and am not too sure how popular Bitcoins are in the world. Or what people on the forum think of them.
God..I never though of PayPal...
I have an internet start up idea. So Im just research now..
Yep! Anything that supports the bitcoin economy and makes people realize it's potential as a global currency without the strangle hold of central banks is a win-win for me!!!
In the city here (Vancouver), businesses are finally starting to jump on board of accepting BTC as payment for goods and services. It's a revolution that can't be stopped. If more people knew the truth behind the current monetary system, many MANY more people would use bitcoin as the preferred currency and transaction platform (because it's both!).
i dont understand what is bitcoin.
What is it?
Never heard so far.
I was highly amused when I saw a notice in The Blenz (Seymour Street in Vancouver) window that they accept Bitcoins for coffee. Wow! Things have certainly changed. Bitcoins are taking off!
The Finns most avid users of the bit coins.
Spanish bank BBVA published Bitcoin-report which states that Finland is a top priority when measuring the bit-slot downloads per capita.
Finnish figure is 0.5 per cent. Almost the same level are Iceland and Sweden.
I'd feel questionable about it, but if that was the most practical solution, I guess.
I would! I have a friend who invested a bit of money in bitcoins and turned them making a nice chunk of change. I think if I were to get paid in bitcoins, I'd probably convert the majority of it to regular currency.
I think i should try if i have more bit coins. How to create account?
I think I would take the job depending on how much money is paid, but not so much what type of money it is. So if there's a good amount of money and the job is doing something cool,. I wouldn't mind. Of course, if it's some shady operation done online and stuff, it might be more suspicious for me and I would think twice before accepting something like that.
I would certainly go for it. Bitcoins are reasonably stable in value and can be converted to any other currency anonymously if you are careful.
I was working for bitcoin up to recently (aug 14) I was paid to do a some work on a videogame. Since my country has exchange control , it was a good way to get USD , but I stopped because the price is falling as we speak
I'd say go for it. Bitcoins are probably safer than USD in my opinion. At least there is a fixed number of bitcoins that can exist. USD and most modern currencies are strictly fiat currencies and mean nothing.
I woudln't mind it, but as soon as I got the payment, I would exchange bitcoins for "offline" currency. The value of them is changing just too much and you can lose a lot if you are not careful.
