Why Apple Pay is bad - and good - for Bitcoin

Submitted 2 years 7 months ago by philip.

Apple revealed its long-awaited payment platform Apple Pay to the public yesterday, allowing quick and easy credit card payments with only an iPhone. Fans of Bitcoin have already been quick to criticize their new-found competitor, citing the technological superiority of Bitcoin and the Block Chain that's been alive since 2009.

But credit must be given to Apple for their entrance into payment processing, as they created a simple electronic solution to a stiff plastic problem. However, this is by no means the beginning of the end for Bitcoin.

Bitcoin gear you can buy when you sell your iPhone

Submitted 3 years 2 weeks ago by philip.

Some of us here in the e4btc.com team had iPhones and decided to sell them after all the attacks on Bitcoin apps by Apple. Even though we found out all the ways to get around Apple's restrictions, we grew tired of the anti-Bitcoin company and sold our iPhones to gear up and meet all of our Bitcoin needs. We already had desktops and laptops, so we needed to fully equip ourselves to be able to survive in a Bitcoiner's life.
