‘Chicken and Egg’ Problem

"I believe merchants have been widely
disappointed by the number of transactions
they see in bitcoin. Most merchants have
taken a passive approach to integrating
bitcoin as a payment method, instead of
strategically testing and optimizing checkout
flows to encourage consumer adoption."Steve Beauregard,
CEO of GoCoin

• Consumers need compelling reasons to use the volatile
and still relatively hard to acquire bitcoin over alternatives
