Any chance of us being the first football club to accept Bitcoin payments for online purchases and season tickets for next year.

Lets be the first 'multi-currency' club.

Amazon have just announced they have installed BitPay Inc., a payment processor for digital Bitcoin payments to allow vendors to accept payment in Bitcoin.

Well we have missed a trick.  If the club had listened to qwerty we would be in a 50,000 seated stadium and in the champions league ;) ;)

At the time of this post in 2013 it was trading at about $100, yes you can split.

Bitcoin is currently over priced (still by several thousand dollars) but has lost over $2000 since yesterday, and is making lots of headlines. It is only one of several viable cryptocurrencies and the idea of accepting a limited range is not unreasonable but not only Bitcoin. The one that is currently most used at the moment is Ethereum. The club would just need an account with someone like Coinbase where they could convert payments back to sterling, but they would need to do it immediately or risk losing or gaining with the volatility of the crypto currencies market. All the cryptocurrencies are splitable into small fractions of a unit.

Easy money if someone had a spare few bob, and invested early doors.  Like the . com bubble will only go one way now I am afraid.
