    The North American Bitcoin Conference is No Longer Accepting Bitcoin Payments

    The North American Bitcoin Conference is No Longer Accepting Bitcoin Payments for Tickets

    The North American Bitcoin Conference, which will take place in Miami next week, is no longer allowing people to pay for tickets with cryptocurrencies due to “network congestion and manual processing” issues. The ticketing page for the conference notes that it had accepted such forms of payment up until 14 days before the event, but that bitcoin transactions would not be possible for last-minute buyers because of “print deadlines.”

    Moe Levin, the conference’s organizer, told Bitcoin.com, “We wish this was easier, but no ticketing options exist which can handle large volumes of ticket sales, and transaction fees on the Bitcoin blockchain exceed $30 at certain times of the day.” His team is reportedly trying to find a way to implement cryptocurrencies with lower transaction fees, such as bitcoin cash, into the payment system. Yet, as Levin notes, it’s difficult to set up crypto payments when ticketing services like Eventbrite don’t accept bitcoin yet.
    Now that's just funny.

    There is no half way. After his first exposure, a man is either a sheep hunter or he isn’t. He either falls under the spell of sheep hunting and sheep country or he won’t be caught dead on another sheep mountain.

    Yep, very funny. Note the blurb about transaction fees at certain times. Wasn't this whole cryptocurrency system supposed to be free?

    Now more than two weeks, and the Left still remain incapable of saying that Leftist violence is bad.

    Transaction fees are voluntary -- in theory. But when the transaction handling capacity of the network is overwhelmed and you want your transaction to clear in a reasonable amount of time, it turns into a bidding war to move to the front of the line.

    I know, I was referring to the previous proclamations of others that bitcoin is awesomest because the transactions are free.

    Blockchain is pretty solid as a transaction technology but it'll never be free.
