Bitcoin in Action: BETCOIN

As some of you may know, I've played poker seriously for the last four years. Being stuck in an online poker unfriendly country like the United States, our options for sites are limited. With the promise of a stateless, decentralized, digital currency like bitcoin, this barrier can be overcome by a polished site like Betcoin, currently a member of the Winning Poker Network (WPN).

Why Are So Few Black People Using Bitcoin?

Excellent question - and the purpose of this site.

I'm featured in this article from the esteemed The Atlantic, which endeavors to find out why.

“Can you imagine what it would have been like to own a piece of email technology in 1994?” asks Jackson, who believes the currency is still very much in its early adoption phase. “That’s what Bitcoin is like right now, and it’s only getting bigger.”

I tried to buy from a bitcoin ATM. It did not go well.

1. Cell phone number. 
2. FOUR palm scans. 
3. Five minute wait before I'm "approved" to buy bitcoin. Wait - I have to APPLY to buy bitcoin?!? 
Pff: Let's just say I didn't wait the five minutes...
