It’s almost like fake currency is fake, ya know?
arent Itchy and Scratchy the Tom and Jerry Simpsons equivalent? like cat and mouse they are always fighting, isnt that an analogy like saying fiat is to fund wars?
If you’re in a number of 3rd world countries Bitcoin is Godsend. We have the best banking in the world here in the U.S and in Europe, of course we don’t need Bitcoin. Most of the world does need crypto tho. If you’re hating on it because you can’t spend it here in America or in any industrialized country you’re not seeing the big picture. Bitcoin isn’t going away anytime soon and although another coin might take it’s place in the future crypto will not go away.
It will be the reverse in a few years.
That’s why you get a shift card, (or something similar) and then you can spend your money where visa is accepted.
I’ve been looking for an easy way to spend btc in the “real world” lately.
u should visit Arnheim in the netherlands. there you can spend bitcoin in 20-30 shops.
It feels same “inside” internet
What debit card are you guys using? I have a Shift card, which I would not recommend, but they’re shutting it down anyway.
You’d have this problem even with a foreign reserve currency. Or with gold.
It’s only a matter of time. I know it seems like a meme now, but once Bakkt kicks off with its integration in Starbucks, other retailers will likely jump on board. We’re looking at a future where *everyone* takes Itchy & Scratchy money!
Go to [gyft.com](https://gyft.com) you can spend BTC for all the major retailers. Also try [cointoolbox.com/spend](https://cointoolbox.com/spend.html) more merchants that take BTC and other crypto
Did The Simpsons predict Bitcoin Cash in this episode?
The pivot points will be Amazon, Alibaba, and/or Square.
it’s very hard to spend or even get people to pay me using it. There’s too much risk in even owning bitcoin. That is the current biggest problem.
Why would you go outside the internet?
What it feels like trying to use Bolivar in Venezuela, Bitcoin has picked up a lot in Venezuela this week!
Bitcoin saving lives!
Just use your bitcoin debit card if you really want to spend bitcoin.
But IMO bitcoin (or any altcoin that runs on blockchain) was never meant to be spent at the Point Of Sale because the only way to do it would be 0-conf which is possible to reverse once you walk off. This is why lightning and L2 solutions are the key.
Also, comparing bitcoin to “Itchy & Scratchy money” is wrong because bitcoin is nobody’s money (unlike just about everything else).
I think part of the problem is volatility. As a merchant I am not interested in hodling or fighting the money system. I need that money I get from you to reinvest it right away in my business. So, if you want me to accept bitcoin, I need an easy and fast way to convert it back to fiat money reliably. If I am under constant uncertainty about the rate of convertion – that is a big problem for me and I won’t play along.

For now…soon this visual will be more representative of the US dollar
Where do they take bitcoin on the internet?
There are lots of parallels between wanting to spend bitcoin and wanting to eat vegan food. Vegans are often willing to pay extra to not have any animal based products served. That is steadily creating an ever increasing market. Eventually vegan food is not going to be more expensive but cheaper.
I understand many consumers dislike the idea that you’d have to pay extra if you pay with bitcoin. However, I think that is the correct way to create adaption. Merchants need more equipment and experience. When there’s one customer a year it just doesn’t make sense.
What it will feel like trying to spend USD in 20 years ftfy
funny thing is that Homer just have in his hands the “Itchy-scratchy” money… fiat bills 🙂
**Simpsons did it again, with their predictions!**
This image is the perfect example of how will be on the streets, when BTC will be largely accepted: **nobody will want fiat-itchy-scratchy-money!**
Homer needs to find the right store…
