I won’t spend bitcoin until I’m paid in bitcoin.

I know there is a big push to get retailers to accept bitcoin, but as we all know, it doesn’t work. Generally, retailers who accept bitcoin tell us no one uses it. I know I don’t. The only way I would pay with bitcoin, is if I was paid in bitcoin. Until then, hodl on. In my opinion it’s more important to get employers on board that retailers. What do you think?

Do you accept Bitcoin, how's it worked out for you?

It seems every other post on Reddit complaining about credit card fees or chargebacks has a comment about the benefits of Bitcoin. So retailers who accept Bitcoin I'd like to know from you whether it's been worth it, what % of transactions do you get via Bitcoin? If you could provide more details about what industry you are in and how you accept it (direct or through a processor like Coinbase) that would be good too.
Edit: Please, let's keep this to facts of peoples experiences accepting Bitcoin. There are plenty of other threads where you can discuss your opinion on it.

BITCOIN IS THE FUTURE!!!

When the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin first hit the market and started garnering attention, people were intrigued. The value of the newly minted currency quickly rose from almost nothing to more than $1,000 apiece. After that, Bitcoin fell in price and some people began questioning the value of the Bitcoin currency, and whether these types of new currencies are as desirable as they have been made out to be. Since then Bitcoin has continued a meteoric rise where today it has reached over $4000 per bitcoin and people are predicting it may reach a million dollars per coin within 10 years, let’s take a look at this phenomenon.

Benefits of Bitcoin

A number of influences have combined to create a strong need for Bitcoin, and the new digital currency still has a lot of advantages to offer consumers and investors around the world. One of the biggest reasons Bitcoin is still considered the wave of the future has to do with the need for increased security measures. Identity theft has been on the rise, with entire databases full of credit card numbers and other personal information being stolen and used for nefarious purposes. The new PIN-and-chip credit cards banks are issuing have helped to some extent, but there is still plenty of room for fraud.
Bitcoin offers nervous consumers a more secure alternative to the more traditional payment methods. Since the Bitcoin transactions are entirely anonymous, the security is built in from the start. Bitcoin users benefit not only from the privacy and security of the transactions, but from other advantages that go far beyond financial security. Those living in repressive regimes have been turning to Bitcoin to make purchases, transfer funds, and live their lives far from the prying eyes of their governments. Like Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms, Bitcoin has a powerful role to play in spreading democracy and helping nascent freedom movements grow and thrive. The decentralized nature of the cryptocurrency, and the fact that transactions cannot be traced back to individuals, make Bitcoin a natural fit for those concerned about government spying and repression.
Bitcoin also has a number of benefits that government-issued and government-backed currencies simply cannot offer. Many people are worried about the future of traditional currencies such as the Euro and the U.S. dollar. If those currencies were to fall or get into serious trouble, the implications would be enormous. Many people see Bitcoin as a natural hedge against the risk of traditional currencies, as well as a valuable safe haven should a crisis occur.

Financial Freedom?

Freedom from financial interference is another valuable benefit of Bitcoin. Governments, tax agencies, and even private businesses can freeze traditional bank accounts with the touch of a button, putting individual wealth at serious risk.
Paying with Bitcoin and maintaining a Bitcoin account offers protection from the risk of asset seizures and bank account freezes. Even individuals who have no reason to think their assets would be frozen have been using Bitcoin to protect themselves from this unlikely scenario. Those who have been struck by previous asset and bank account seizures are even more enamored of Bitcoin and even more likely to turn to the currency.
Some may think that turning to Bitcoin in an attempt to avoid asset seizures and bank account forfeitures seems a bit paranoid, but there are other, more practical, reasons to opt for the cryptocurrency in lieu of credit cards and other forms of payment.
One of those more practical reasons is the relatively low transaction fee charged by retailers who accept Bitcoin as payment. The transaction fees associated with wire transfers and foreign purchases can be extremely high, as anyone who has traveled overseas recently can attest. Bitcoin fees are typically much lower, making the cryptocurrency an excellent choice for all kinds of purchases.
Another big practical benefit of paying with Bitcoin is the easy availability of mobile payments. On-the-go payments allow consumers to make Bitcoin purchases with the touch of a button on any smartphones. There is no need to travel to a bank or pull money from an ATM.
Despite some recent setbacks and questions about its long-term viability, there are many reasons to think that Bitcoin is still the wave of the future. This cryptocurrency is tailor-made for the digital age, and many 21st -century consumers continue to use it. Whether you are looking for an anonymous way to pay, want freedom from high transaction fees, or are just curious about this new currency, now is the perfect time to join the Bitcoin revolution.
... please buy my bitcoin.

Illicit trades have always existed. Money is just an abstract token that makes trading easier. Blaming illicit trading on the abstract token is silly. Lets educate the public.

I keep hearing mainstream news articles that mention bitcoin always mention illicit trading when mentioning bitcoin. Perhaps because it is noteworthy or maybe it is just to condition people into associating bitcoin with something illicit. Any money can be used for illicit trading. Even items can be used because bartering came before money did. So lets examine the ways bitcoin does and does not undermine governments authority.
Bitcoin greatly undermines capital controls. But I think we can all agree that no individual wants capital controls. Only authoritarian governments want capital controls. Instead of worrying about capital fleeing and making that illegal, governments should try to make capital not want to flee.
Bitcoin doesn't really help with tax evasion. The fact that every transaction is basically logged in public isn't the point here. Consider a few examples: You go to buy an item from a retailer who accepts bitcoin. If that retailer normally charges tax for the item then it won't be any different if the purchase is made in bitcoin.
Consider a house purchased with bitcoin. That house still has a title and that title makes you liable for paying the property taxes. Bitcoin doesn't help you evade those taxes even if the taxes collected were allowable in the form of bitcoin. Buying the house itself doesn't absolve you from paying taxes either since your house will now be an asset that can be scrutinized and seized by the government when it is compared to your income.
The only tax that bitcoin really makes troublesome are estate taxes. But who really wants estate taxes anyway? What right does a government have to make a death tax? They already implicitly create death taxes when they force us to pay for things like social security and we die before ever recouping those payments.
Bitcoin makes it hard for governments to conspire with banks to create "bail-in" type situations. But can't we all agree that is a good thing? Why should honest people who just use banks for accounting and transfer purposes be forced to take on the risk that banks make with their investments and bets that involve profits which are never shared?
Most illicit trades are done in person. So who would ever prefer bitcoin to cash for these trades? It is only dark net style purchases which bitcoin makes easier. But what makes these trades possible isn't bitcoin. It is the Tor network. Without bitcoin another currency could easily fill the gap. Even a near worthless one. It is the tor network that is important here.
Finally, lets talk about terrorism. Personally I am a conspiracy theorist who thinks that rich white(non-muslim) people fund terrorism. But that is aside from the point. Bitcoin can never be "a source of funding" for terrorism because money isn't a source of funding. A source of funding is something like drilling and pumping oil out of the ground and then selling those barrels to Turkey or something for instance. That would be a source of funding. To blame any kind of terrorism on money itself is a foolish notion but one that will probably work because people in general are fools. Would bitcoin make cross border payments of whatever funding easier? Maybe. Just like cell phones probably make it easier for criminals to talk to each other. So when technology improves let us not blame technology on the crimes. Thanks.

How to sell bitcoins

So, you’ve decided you want to sell some of your bitcoin holdings? The process is quite simple, though it will vary somewhat depending on how you have chosen to secure your investment.
How to Withdraw Funds
If you are keeping your bitcoins on an exchange like Coinbase or Kraken, it is easy to sell them for fiat currency. Just place a sell order and select your linked checking or Paypal account. Depending on the exchange and the current level of trading volume, your money will be available within a few days–check with your exchange for any guarantees or caveats. Usually there will be a small transaction fee.
If you are using an exchange that deals exclusively in cryptocurrency, or if you are keeping your holdings on a cold wallet, you will first have to transfer your bitcoins to a wallet on an exchange that allows cryptocurrency-to-fiat transactions, like the ones previously mentioned, then execute the sale as described above.
Other Ways to Sell Bitcoins
You can also sell your bitcoins directly by creating an account on a site such as LocalBitcoins or Bitbargain. You make an offer at a given price. Once you agree on a deal, the buyer will transfer funds, and you will send bitcoins to the address specified.
If you want to sell bitcoins for cash, you may be able to find individuals who are interested in making a deal, using a site such as Craigslist or Nextdoor, but this approach carries inherent risks. If you choose to do this, be wary of scams and take sensible precautions. Never agree to meet anywhere that is not secure, and do not front anyone bitcoin in return for a promise of later payment (remember, bitcoin transactions are irreversible)! It is much safer to deal with people you already know and trust, so if you have any friends who are also interested in cryptocurrency, consider making them an offer instead. Of course, always remember to keep records and pay any taxes owed on profits from your cryptocurrency trades.
One of the most enjoyable ways to get rid of bitcoins is to use them to pay someone back in a situation in which you would ordinarily use cash. Say you go out to lunch with a friend who seems curious about cryptocurrencies, but has been too intimidated to take the plunge. Instead of splitting the tab, you could offer to help your friend set up an account on an exchange, and send them their first bitcoin to cover your half of the meal. A down-to-earth introduction like this will help expand your friend’s comfort zone, and watching the value of that first bitcoin grow can lead to a fruitful interest in cryptocurrency developments.
In the current investment-focused climate, it is easy to forget that bitcoin is designed to be a medium of exchange as well as a store of value. Consider supporting one of the many forward-thinking retailers who accept bitcoin as payment for goods or services. Some hip local businesses also take bitcoin, so don’t be afraid to inquire.

Whenever I try encouraging people to use bitcoins, they are often like, yeah I've heard it goes up and down but who really does business with bitcoins? Well guess what, hundreds of retails, ecommerce websites, mortgage companies and more. Here is a massive list of different businesses that accept.

How can I sell btc in Canada and transfer to bank account or paypal?

Hello,
Earlier in the summer I used mtgox and okpay and a third company to finally get some bitcoins transferred over as cash to my paypal account. Going through 3 companies cost me I think $20 in various fees. Is there a way I can just sell my bitcoins and have them deposited in my Paypal or sent to my bank? I want to use them to purchase computer parts, so maybe there is a Canadian retailer who accepts bitcoins?
Thanks

Bitcoin Businesses: correlation between BTC volatility and sales?

Bitcoin Businesses and other retailers who accept Bitcoin: Do you see a major decline in sales when the cash value of BTC drops significantly (like it did today)?
For example, while yesterday it may have cost 0.1 BTC to by a new hard drive, the 20% drop in price since yesterday would make it cost 0.12 Bitcoin today. I was wondering if consumers tend to hold on to their coin for another day or two to have the price rebound, especially if they know whats going on with Mt.Gox.

The most important thing we can do is convince more retailers to accept bitcoin, and spend it at the ones who do.

I keep on seeing articles saying that bitcoin is a bubble because it serves no real purpose other than investing in it or spending it on illegal things. I know there are other uses for it, but we need to keep on making progress with convincing retailers to accept it, and spend it at the ones who do. It worked out great for Overstock, but too many retailers have no idea what they're missing out on.
Whenever you buy something online, if they don't accept bitcoin, send them a quick email to ask them if they have considered accepting bitcoin, because a lot of us have some that we want to spend. I do that with everyone from Amazon to someone selling something on CraigsList, and the response is usually that they'll consider it if enough people ask them for it.
