You don't know anyone who has a turnkey operation to allow you to put a widget on your site and accept bitcoin? Mark Andreesen, you had him on your show for pete's sake! How can you be so blind!?

Your business manager hasn't done his due diligence. BitPay allows merchants to convert bitcoin payments to market rate immediately with next day settlement. At 1% or $30 per month, whichever is lower, it is much more advantageous to accept bitcoin than credit card payments.

I don't think he's doing his job by missing an opportunity to accept bitcoin donations prior to this episode. It really is a lost opportunity. I even recommended BitPay to tour show in the past in order to mitigate all risk. What a shame.

Nice show..

Andreesen's venture Coinbase has a turnkey no volatility risk "accept Bitcoin" system that could be installed in any website in a jiffy.. The kind of think your business manager was looking for..

Plug it in and see what happens!
