With businesses like Overstock and Wordpress accepting Bitcoin, is this something you would consider for your business?

Absolutely, anytime a customer wants to pay you, find a way to accommodate them. But accepting Bitcoin and holding Bitcoin are not the same thing.

There are merchant accounts you can set up to accept Bitcoin and IMMEDIATELY convert to Dollars (or whatever your national currency is) no risk there. Better still, unlike credit cards there is no risk of charge backs, and no theft, when you've been paid, you've been paid. Best of all you don't hold someone's identity and risk having that hacked from your system.

I was considering it at one point until I discovered just how ultra high risk it really is!

Let's say that you do accept it and for some reason you lose your access to your Bitcoin account, i.e. a hard drive crash.

Hi, Allan, and thank you for your feedback.

I am looking to expand by virtual bookkeeping business to the medical/recreational cannabis [marijuana] business in WA, and one of the ways I'm considering working with some of the local businesses is via BTC.

I did some reading, and read about "Potcoins" and a company in Denver allowing a sort of ATM, to do a BTC - cash exchange.

There's a decent sized Meetup for the industry in my area, and besides my bookkeeping business I'll be looking to promote, I'm thinking to also mention BTC, but am not as familiar with it.... (more)
