Five reasons why your business should consider accepting Bitcoin

Originally posted on Western Mass BTC:

While it is not wise to make a blanket statement about whether any given business should accept bitcoin, there are some key reasons to consider:

  1. No chargebacks – Since bitcoin operates much like a digital version of cash, transactions are one-way and therefore, chargebacks do not exist. As a business owner you can, of course, voluntarily choose to return full or partial payment to your customer, and it is good business to do so when justified. However, unlike with credit cards, you are protected from fraudulent charge-backs that can have a significant impact on revenues and cashflow.
  2. Reduced transaction fees – Due to bitcoin’s decentralized nature, and because there are no chargebacks, fees for transacting in bitcoin are significantly smaller (and in some cases, near zero) versus credit cards.  For many merchants, the potential savings in reduced credit card fees makes for one of the most attractive reasons to consider…

Donations for Family Affected By MTA Train Derailment

In reference to the re-blogged post below, and the one before that, I will be taking all of the Bitcoin donations received from the link below and I will be giving them to the Lovell Family. Jim Lovell was one of the 4 passengers that lost their lives on the Metro North train that derailed on December 1st 2013 near the Spuyten Duyvil station. He was a good family friend of mine and he is survived by his wife and 4 kids. My goal is to raise a minimum of 1 Bitcoin (as of now that would equal almost $1,100USD) The link below to donate is for 1/10th of a Bitcoin. If you would to donate more, or less please feel free and contact me with any questions at worldofbitcoins@gmail.com. I created this coinbase account strictly for this purpose, to raise money for the family.

I’m not sure about the results of this blog post, so depending on the response and the amount of bitcoins raised, if the goal is not met or surpassed, I will gladly give back any of the Bitcoin donations received. If we meet our goal I will be giving the Bitcoins DIRECTLY to the family. 100% of the donations will go to the family. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and any donation is GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank you all, and live each day to the fullest. Jim Lovell was a great man, with a great family and he surely will be missed. His memory will live on and he will not be forgotten.

Derailment Renews Questions On Automated Speed Control

nast13:

I knew one of the people that lost their lives on this train. Jim Lovell. He was a great person, Father of 4 and husband. He will surely be missed. He lived his life always geniuinely interested in what others were doing with their lives. Everytime I saw him he would always ask how my family was and how I have been and he truly cared. Brooke, Finn, Jack, Hudson & Nancy, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Jim was a great person!

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) _ The revelation that a New York City commuter train derailed while barreling around a sharp curve at nearly three times the speed limit is fueling questions about whether automated crash-avoidance technology could have prevented the carnage.

Safety officials have championed what’s known as positive train control technology for decades, but the railroad industry has sought to postpone having to install it because of the high cost and technological issues.

Investigators haven’t yet determined whether the weekend wreck, which killed four people and injured more than 60 others, was the result of human error or mechanical trouble. But some safety experts said the tragedy might not have happened if Metro-North Railroad had the technology, and a lawmaker said the derailment underscored the need for it.

“This incident, if anything, heightens the importance of additional safety measures, like that one,”…

Accepting Donations Using Bitcoins

I recently decided to try and use Bitcoins as a way to start collecting donations and start a fund in order to donate money to local families in need of help, especially around the holiday. If you can help out, please do so here. I am accepting donations in the form of Bitcoins. If possible click on the button below and you will be prompted to fill out further information. I set it up so the donation button will be for 1/10th of a Bitcoin from your Coinbase account if you have one. Depending on the going rate, that will determine how much the donation will be for. Please let me know if the button works as this is the first time I have tried this. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you!
