    I don't really know much about it. Just heard about it once recently.

    Yeah, long time. You still in London?

    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    I've been involved with bitcoin community for almost 2 years now, but nothing related to e business, etc .. I was just mining some bitcoins. I think US gov now had recognized bitcoin as a real financial instrument. Bitcoin coin was made to be digital currency, like e-cash before. The genius idea behind bitcoin is how the distributed system was implemented. Now bitcoin is not anymore just a geek generation toy, it's became really a popular and a real alternative to do business. I cannot give an advice about bitpay.com though, I never had used it. But sounds like cheap than the actual credit cards fees. Although bitcoin was made to be digital currency, people are really using it as trading asset just like gold and silver... Someones says that it could be a substitute for all gold reserves on the globe, btw it would be ecologically more sensible indeed

    Yep, I'm still in London and my son is growing with a cockney accent LoL.

    Hope you and yours loved ones are happy and health.

    ps-> if you want to get a better and solid understand about bitcoin from software engineering point of view watch the first 30 minutes of Microsoft Researcher Matthew Green, Johns Hopkins University

    and the original community forum ( old school style )
    https://bitcointalk.org/

    From financial perspective I would suggest ( bit outdate but ok)
    Bitcoin 2013 conference - Noah Silverman - Statistical Analysis of Price Swings and Market Pricing

    As a geek, I hope my next order going to be paid with bits..

    Kind Regards,
    All the best
