Hair salon in Glendale California accepts bitcoin

First in Glendale, California: Glamour Hair Studio to Accept Bitcoin

I was passing by Broadway Street in Glendale California when I noticed “Bitcoin Accepted” sign on a window of the local business. This was the first time I ever seen a physical business accepting digital currency. It struck my interest, and I decided to walk-in to have a small interview with the owner.

In a small interview with business partners, Arch and Isabel, I asked the following questions:

Why did you deiced to accept Bitcoin?

Arch responded with a wide smile on his face:

Fast, Cheap and Safe!!!

Fast: Transaction shows up in your account almost instantly and you know you got paid. Of course, it takes about 10 minutes for the network to verify and clear the payment. However, that’s not an issue compared to conventional payment processors’ 2-5 day timeframe.

Cheap: It’s much cheaper than conventional currency processing. You might incur a very small fee, if I’m not mistaken, that is for rewarding the miners for payment processing. Also, there is 1% charge if you like to instantly convert your BTCs to Dollars, with no volatility risk. But when you keep transactions in Bitcoins, there are no fees. And, that is a huge plus for a business.

Safe: You don’t need to trust someone for handling your money. You receive BTCs straight into your digital wallet in a matter of minutes. And, no holds, when payment processor decides to freeze your money for unexplained reasons”

Also, Isabel added:

“There is no chargebacks. In our experience, most chargebacks occurred as a fraudulent transaction by someone simply not willing to pay for the service we provided. We are respected business, and if for any reason customer is not happy and wants a refund, we will give a customer a refund. I don’t think there is a need for chargebacks”

How do you accept bitcoin? How is the payment process taking place?

Arch took his phone, entered the amount, and quickly generated Bitcoin Address in a form of the QR Code. He added

“You just scan the QR code with your smartphone and send a payment from your digital wallet to our payment address. Most wallets have a QR code scanning feature. If you don’t have it, you can download a QR scanner app to quickly generate the payment address. It’s that easy”

Do you think deflating currency is better than inflating?

Arch took a deep breath and said

“In my opinion, naturally deflating currency is better, but again, it’s too soon to say, we just need to wait and see. However, I don’t think we will have huge, irreversible problems with deflation. If it becomes an issue it can be managed to some degree, in an opposite way as the inflation is being managed”

To summarize:

I had a great conversation with Arch and Isabel and I share their excitement of new innovations.

Based on everyday news, it seems that Bitcoin is gaining traction and becoming more widely accepted all over the world.

Satishi Dice closing its doors to USA customers

Satishi Dice blocking USA customers

Satishi Dice blocking USA customers

Here is the recent announcement from Satoshi Dice, the largest Bitcoin gaming website:

“Dear Community,
Beginning tomorrow, Thursday May 16, SatoshiDice.com will close to US players and all US-based IP’s will be blocked from the website. You will also see a new terms of service agreement to which you must agree if you wish to play.
This decision was made on the basis of extensive legal counsel. The best way to limit legal risk for SatoshiDice, and thereby protect its stakeholders, is to block US players.
Note that this decision does not mean that online gambling is illegal in the US, nor does it mean that Bitcoin gaming is illegal. However, the courts have not been clear on the definition of gambling, nor on what would constitute “legitimate gaming,” nor are jurisdictions properly defined, and thus this is a proactive measure to protect those involved in the project.
Further, this decision is not being made because of any citation or notice from any government agency, whatsoever. This is not, in any way, related to the recent Gox/Dwolla court order issue. Again, it is a proactive measure, based on the prudent legal guidance of our trusted lawyers.
We believe this is a wise move for the site to perpetuate in the long term.
Further, to clarify, SatoshiDice is hosted in Netherlands, Iceland, and Ireland, and has never utilized US currency or engaged with the US banking system whatsoever.
-SD”
