There’s a new start-up based out of San Francisco that is providing a service to Bitcoiners that up to now hasn’t existed on such an institutional scale. Users are reporting that snapCard works for international shipments of United States goods sold through the magic of the internet as well. This is great news as Bitcoin spending is the solution for Bitcoin hoarding and there is nothing better than ordering items off of Amazon or Ebay. It is unfortunate that the big name stores that snapCard allows Bitcoiners to shop at do not yet accept Bitcoin directly. However, it is possible that snapCard’s success will be a or the catalyst to cause mainstream adoption of Bitcoin for retail purposes. Eventually all the chargebacks are going to weigh heavy on the hearts of corporate accountants everywhere.
Welcome to the future, mis amigos.
