We have been using Bitcoin for years now, and while the acceptance of the digital currency has grown by leaps and bounds, there are still plenty of stores that do not accept Bitcoin.

Big names such as Overstock.com, WordPress, and now Dell have all begun accepting Bitcoin, including many, many more.

Small local businesses all over the world are leading the revolution in online payments by embracing the advantages of cryptocurrencies, with our homebase of Berlin sporting over 50 locations where customers can pay electronically without banks or third parties taking a cut.

But even after learning Bitcoin has no risk of chargebacks, requires no permission or fees to set up, and has no merchant-side transaction fees, there are still companies refusing to allow their customers to pay with Bitcoin.

partners_obsessed_bitcoin
Guest post by Raphaela Lucsok, suffering partner of All4Btc Manager Phil Lucsok

First of all, I don’t know anything about Bitcoin.

I probably know more than the average human because for a while now every aspect of my life has somehow been connected to Bitcoin and its seemingly endless ways of improving the world.

Here’s the thing, I’m a suffering wife of a Bitcoin-obsessed person.

If you have a partner equally fascinated by the “new, decentralised, open-source, global crypto-currency”, then you may understand my pain.

I’ve compiled a list of 10 things that I’ve come to know as the 10 symptoms of Bitcoin-Obsessed people suffer from.

We may even start a self-help group… and no, we will not meet at Room 77.

Special thanks to Živile Antukaite – another suffering partner of a Bitcoin lover – for designing the graphic!

Clothes and Accessories for Bitcoin

Zalando is one of Germany’s fastest growing and most successful startups.

They have a huge variety of clothes and accessories, with outstanding shipping and customer service. Since we founded Bitcoins Berlin, we’ve been pushing Zalando to accept bitcoin, so far without any success.

After seeing how successful our All4btc Chrome extension was on Amazon and Ebay, generating over €1 million in sales, we thought it is time to show Zalando how much they are missing out by not accepting Bitcoin.

If they will realize how big Bitcoin is already they might change their minds and we hope that we will be the ones to make them take a second look.

Another step toward a Crypto-Bank

Munich-based Fidor Bank AG took another giant leap forward in their investment in decentralized and open-source technologies, becoming the first bank to use the Ripple payment protocol, an open-source decentralized payment network that focuses on conducting fast, cheap and secure transactions.

Fidor Bank provides personal and business banking services to residents of Germany, giving one more reason why Berlin is going crazy for Bitcoin, and giving owners of Bitcoin hope that their regional bank will wake up shortly as well.

The CEO, Matthias Kröner, stated that the implementation of the new technology will save the company costs on conducting intra-bank transactions.

A Market Effect?

While the effects of this new partnership between Ripple and Fidor may remain on the lower-level and away from customers’ eyes, Fidor recognizes the value in building upon decentralized open-source methods, and stockholders are also noticing.

 

Fidor Bank AG stock price rose over 60% since Bitcoin.de partnership [source:bloomberg.com] 

Fidor Bank AG stock has been looking very good since their unprecedented move in July to partner with Bitcoin.de, and the stock market seems interested in innovation and creativity, recognizing the aggressive movement into digital currencies Fidor has made during the last year:

  1. July 10th, 2013 – Bitcoin.de Partnership
  2. October 9th, 2013 – Kraken Partnership
  3. January 11, 2014 – Fidor Bitcoin Derivatives market
  4. May 5th, 2014 – Fidor announces Ripple Payment Network integration

By creating a Bitcoin-friendly environment that customers can safely store, buy and sell bitcoins and euros, account owners can rest assured that Fidor has just as much stake in the currency.

There have been repeated reports of banks closing customers’ accounts due to associated activity with digital currencies [1, 2, 3].

The state of Ohio may have banned Bitcoin-for-Alcohol sales, and China… well.

The first Bank of many

Bitcoin expert Andreas Antonopoulos has pointed out on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast that although there aren’t many Bitcoin-friendly banks around yet, all it takes is one maverick to recognize the inherent value that Bitcoin has as a technology, then all the rest of the banks will have no choice to participate in this new market.

And with so many bank branches taking overly aggressive actions upon their customers, Fidor Bank is showing themselves to be the standard of forward-thinking banks the Bitcoin community has been yearning for, and the rest of the world needs.

“Public Safety” party poopers try to ban Bitcoin for alcohol-related sales

China isn’t the only place trying to ban Bitcoin. The Ohio Department of Public Safety has notified a local liquor store that “Bitcoin cannot be accepted as payment for alcohol in the State of Ohio”.

While it’s great to hear that Ohio has a brand new hub of Bitcoin-accepting shops, called the Bitcoin Boulevard, Cleaveland.com reported that the Public Safety Department’s quick-draw decision will affect many small businesses throughout Ohio.

The statement was issued after the liquor shops accepting Bitcoin proactively reached out to the Department in order to get a clear answer, declaring that since Bitcoin is classified as a property by the IRS, it cannot be traded for alcohol.

Luckily, the way Bitcoin can be used in combination with companies and payment processors such as BitPay, it’s not so hard to get around these silly rules.

BTCBoulevard

A place for Bitcoin

The Bitcoin Boulevard is a collection of local small businesses who teamed up to create a concentrated area where Bitcoin users can shop at brick-and-mortar stores, much like the Bitcoin Kiez located in Berlin, right around the corner from Bitcoins Berlin and All4btc.com’s headquarters.

Regulators just don’t understand

Despite making it clear to regulators that the shop was using BitPay, a service that instantly converts customers’ bitcoins into dollars for the merchant, organizer Nikhil Chand was unable to convince the board that the stores are dealing with dollars and not bitcoins directly.

CoinDesk reported that the liquor law of Ohio states that only “money” can be accepted as payment for alcohol, but the definition of money in this case is not made clear and open to interpretation.

Since liquor licenses are often extremely susceptible to revocation, even indirect/unrelated offenses it looks like the Wine Spot in Cleveland Heights, Ohio will be limited to old-fashioned cash and credit cards when selling their products.

It is confusing to many in the Bitcoin community as to how this has any benefit to “Public Safety”, as Bitcoin is a more secure method of payment, and liquor stores always must verify the age of their customers regardless of the payment method.

WineSpot

I get around…

If you do want to support the Wine Spot on the Bitcoin Boulevard, you can still order via their online shop using old fashioned and insecure credit cards, or use our service all4btc.com to cleverly get around Ohio’s ill-advised regulation.

This is possible due to our German business status and simultaneously protects the Wine Spot because they need not know that Bitcoin was used as the primary purchase method.

Bitcoiners choosing to use all4btc.com can easily buy gift cards* from The Wine Spot, or any other popular online alcohol merchant such as Market View Liquor (US) or Barfish.de (Germany).

Buy liquor, or anything else at all4btc.com!

*Note: All4Btc.com can only supply gift cards for shops selling alcohol, since we do not collect identifying information to prove age.

Are you Bitcoin broke?

Sucks, don’t it?

Definitions may vary, but to be Bitcoin broke, both of the following must be true

  • Have at least 90% of your wealth in Bitcoin
  • The Bitcoin price is too low (in your opinion)
  • You need a bit of fiat just to get by

You don’t want to sell, because you know that the price is going to go up, but you need money now for boring things like rent, heating and elephant faeces.

We at Bitcoins Berlin are feeling the pain.

Each of us in the company has most of their wealth in Bitcoins and we sure as hell don’t want to sell them.

Our sales are correlated with the Bitcoin price

It doesn’t help that our sales are directly correlated with the Bitcoin price.

All4Btc Sales vs Bitcoin Price

 

Is the Bitcoin price making you unhappy?

Have you got a bad case of the crypto gloom?

One of the worst things about digital currencies is the fact that most people don’t really understand.

What’s even more annoying is when people think they understand, but in fact they don’t.

I recently got a call from my mother:

Ben, I saw something on the news. I think Bitcoin’s closed down. I think it’s finished.

She was of course referring to M-T-gox.

Just one of the 10 things that Bitcoiners hate to hear.

“It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen”

Joerg, our trusty CEO, was muttering to himself again.

His French bulldog was tugging at the bottom of his jeans, but he just stared blankly at his screen – a mass of red and green lines.

The life of a Bitcoiner is not always easy and we’ve all caught ourselves checking the price more than once a day, hour, minute.

We’re trying to be positive

We are giving away a Samsung S5 to a lucky customer when the price goes above $1000 again.

To be eligible to win:

  • Make a purchase on All4btc from today onwards
