Mission Market recently recently joined the ranks of a growing number of brick-and-mortar locations across the United States who accept Bitcoin as a means of payment.
Bitcoin, the world’s premier digital alternative currency, “has helped a lot of people think about money in a new way,” says owner, Roland Foss. “As the first-mover and with the largest network of users and merchants, Bitcoin offers a different method and an entirely different means of payment,” he says.
Bitcoin isn’t just another form of currency like dollars or euros; it is also a radical new method of exchanging value. Unlike credit cards, Bitcoin payments are not sent through a labyrinthine network of banks and processors, meaning that transactions can be completed faster and more cheaply than conventional electronic transactions.
