bitcoin accepted hereSetup Your Business to Accept Bitcoin & Crypto Transactions

The first  and most important step will be to get a secure wallet provider.

Coinbase offers everything you will need to start accepting payments. There are many more providers out there but they are the 800 pound gorilla in the industry to date.

Square and Robinhood has crypto capabilities but they are not quite as polished yet.

And thats basically it. That's the whole article really. Lol!

Then you will need to get banners telling people you accept Bitcoin.

Brooklyn Computer  Jesus Saves The Day..... Again.

computer jesus

It's so weird that I had to write a blog post about this. On multiple occasions clients when they bring their machines to me they suddenly just start working. Sometimes without even me touching or doing anything.

I cant tell you how many times I would just plug in a machine, press the power and watch dead computers that clients swore up and down would not power on no matter what they tried. They just leave shaking and scratching their heads.

So much so that a lot of clients have started calling me the Brooklyn Computer Jesus. Trust me. There is nothing holy about what I do.

Scammers Portray Charitable Giving for Hurricane Harvey Victims

It’s unfortunate this article even has to be written. But it does. Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc throughout Texas, and it is clear the storm has not yet passed. It is now, when our country works together to bring some kind of peace to those victims. Often times, that peace comes through charitable donations. Scammers know this. If you choose to donate to the victims of hurricane Harvey, it is important you do so through legitimate avenues. There have already been numerous GoFundMe accounts established to help the victims. However, it is incredibly easy to set up another one that anyone can be behind. There have also been sponsored ads on social media platforms with donation links.
