I love the idea of it but what retailer is going to accept payment in something so volatile, and if they are exchanging it at the point of sale then there is added transaction costs associated with that.

Transaction costs are lower with bitcoin purchases.

The infrastructure is being built up to make this easier and more affordable.

For instance, BitPay is a company that processes bitcoin transactions for websites, locks in the exchange rate at the time of purchase, and remits USD (or whatever fiat of choice) to the merchant, all for a fee of about 2.5%. That's lower than standard credit card or PayPal transaction fees, and with bitcoin there is ZERO threat of a chargeback.

Okay.

Important question.


How in the hell do I bust into your crib and steal your bitcoins?

I don't get why you keep posting this as a positive. It only protects sellers over buyers.

re: Ultimate Bitcoin Thread - Bitcoin rallying
Would a vendor like BitPay be able to process a return/refund situation? I assume it would have to be in fiat currency at the rate locked in at point of sale or the CURRENT equivalent rate of Bitcoins?

Unless you have a few billion years or so to crack the encryption, I'm not worried.

Because it is a positive. Chargeback fraud is a big expense for merchants, especially online ones.

Not that I'm aware of right now. There probably will be something like that in the future if its desired.
