I did well in the first crypto boom. Missed out this one due to personal stuff. It’s like looking at Ford or tesla stock now kicking myself.
However I know during the first boom, many breeders starting saying they would accept it. Then after the crash they all pulled back. For a site that basically became the main hub of the hobby. I don’t think it would be in the sites best interest to deal with something the average person doesn’t fully understand.
Even here people thinking bitcoin is still used on the dark web or that it’s secure. If I did a transaction with you, I then have your wallet number, I can see every transaction that wallet has made. If you moved coin from one wallet to that wallet I can see that. The only anonymity is a name not being tied to the wallet number. Once we do a transaction I know far more than if we did PayPal. You could run it through a tumbler, but there’s fees for that as well. Also there’s no way to get funds back if there was a scam. As bad as PayPal is about live animal sales, they are still bound to us law and have to take care of many issues.
FYI, Monero is what’s used on the dark web now as it addresses the anonymity issue and a few others. I view bitcoin more like stock personally. For the record I currently don’t own any crypto, but am watching carefully as a I believe one of them will be a worldwide currency eventually.
