美國最大的品牌折扣物流商OverStock接受Bitcoin付款



CEO Patrick Byrne 表示:因為接受 Bitcoin 的成本比信用卡和 PayPal 低,Bitcoin減少了銀行的或國家出現問題的風險。該公司的後台由Coinbase進行技術合作,於上週二完成合作契約本日上線。

That said, Overstock is unlikely to see a huge number of bitcoin payments anytime soon. The bitcoin community remains relatively small, and with so many of them hoarding bitcoins as an investment, they’re reluctant to spend them on, say, patio furniture or an Xbox One. But Byrne is taking the long view.



“It does not worry me. ‘Mighty oaks from tiny acorns are sprung,’ and all that,” he says, before adding that some people will spend bitcoin on his site simply for the “thrill of contributing to this change.”
