I am a former VC, current Bitcoin entrepreneur and business development professional.
In this presentation, I outline a methodology for prioritizing merchant targets likely to embrace bitcoin in the near-term based on five criteria, and give some examples of target merchants. Some of these merchants have begun to accept bitcoin since I wrote this initial draft in November, including Shopify, Zynga and social enterprise, Watsi.
The presentation was prepared for several of the major Bitcoin merchant service and wallet providers, but it is my exclusive property. I am not affiliated with any major merchant services provider or wallet provider at this time. This is simply an overview of how I would tackle new merchant acquisition in order to continue to demonstrate Bitcoin's utility to merchants and mainstream consumers alike, and recommendations are based on my extensive finance & business development experience.
