Businesses that accept bitcoin are able to tap into a new market and also virtually eliminate transaction fees. Credit card companies usually hit a business for about 3% of each transaction, and bitcoin’s fee is just pennies, no matter the size of the transaction. By adding bitcoin as an option for their customers, businesses keep more profit from each bitcoin transaction than if they were to use credit card.

The Uncoinventional Family & Bitcoin Bus Parked at the LRN.FM Studios
In the long tradition of interstate, large-vehicle liberty tours launching from or traveling through Keene including Motorhome Diaries and Liberty on Tour, the Bitcoin Bus kicks off an “uncoinventional” tour across the Eastern United States! Free State Project participants John Bush, Cat Bleish and their two kids have taken possession of the Unschool Bus and have converted it into the Bitcoin Bus!
Today, the family rolled out from the Shire to their next destination in New York and will stop in other places along the way to their home of Austin, Texas. Along the way their goal is to spend only bitcoin. This is the family’s third bitcoin-only tour, but the first for the Bitcoin Bus!
LRN.FM is sponsoring the bus (with bitcoin, of course) as are some other great sponsors including the super-cool new WageCan, which is finally offering a bitcoin-based Mastercard tied to a bank account in Hong Kong.
Free Keene is now accepting DOZENS of the world’s most popular altcoins, thanks to ShapeShift.io. Whether you have LTC, DOGE, NXT, NMC, SDC, NVC, or whatever, we can probably accept it – just click the graphic here to give it a try. Thank you for your support!
