Those who have been using Bitcoin since the early days know how frustrating it was to have this great currency instrument only to discover that it was very difficult to find businesses that would let you pay for their goods and services with it. In fact, you had a hard just trying to explain what it was.
So you found your own community of people who would take and waited. Slowly but surely, Bitcoin grew. More and more people knew about it and more and more people would let you pay for things with it.
As time went on, businesses started to come around, mostly small businesses and primarily because customers continued to inquire. The number of small businesses grew and then it started catching the attention of the media. As it began to look as though this was something that would stick around and wasn’t just some fad or scam that eventually the government would put a stop to, other savvy retailers started to sit up and take notice.
It took a while, but Amazon and Zappas, large online retailers, jumped on the bandwagon and began accepting Bitcoins for payment. It took them awhile, but they did it.
