Putting together a merchant how-to 'one-pager' and USB stick resource guide.
I recently moved to a new area and have been visiting my local grocery store pretty much every day to buy some of the basics. There's no ATM nearby so I end up using my debit card which incurs a 50p Visa or £1 Mastercard charge each time I do so. The shopkeeper is very apologetic about it and usually launches into a big speech about how much he hates banks for fucking him and his customers like this. I've been subtly suggesting bitcoin to him every time he goes into his tirade "So do you accept bitcoin yet?" and he's slowly beginning to bite after initially laughing the idea off and giving me a 'WTF' look. I and the shopkeeper were talking about bitcoin again earlier today and the dude next to me in the shop queue chirps up saying: "You should seriously think twice about doing this unless you want volatility to fuck you." At which point I mention BitPay "Oh well that's another discussion for another day." Says negative Nancy. Not really I say but of course I don't have time to go into the full details. The shopkeeper is left unsure who or what to believe (after-all I probably sound like some kind of snakeoil sales rep talking about magical fee-less money transactions). It strikes me that there's a lot of conflicting bullshit out there and that, although it's encouraging to know a complete randomer in the queue knows about bitcoin, the FUDsters are currently dominating the convo among the 'average man (and merchant) on the street'. Which brings me to my main point: It would be kind of nice, I think, to simply hand the shopkeeper a USB stick with a bunch of Youtube videos and PDF's explaining what bitcoin is and how to get started, how to avoid volatility and so forth, along with a simple one-page printout gently introducing the concept. Any ideas for what to include would be much appreciated, I think everything from basic how to's to documentaries such as the Morgan Spurlock Inside Man special could be included on the USB stick. If we get something nice together, I'll do all the downloading and provide everything in a zip for others that might want to follow suit.
