Accepting bitcoin is not only a good way for your “business to consumer” activity, but also for paying affiliates, especially if they are located in emerging markets such as Asia, South America, and Africa. Countries like China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Philippines, Vietnam, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa are perfect for payouts in bitcoin.

Traditional payment methods are expensive with high fees and slow transaction processes.

Every day I get asked the same question: How does Bitcoin work? Usually I give a Mouse TV-style explanation because most people don`t understand tech talk. Still, Bitcoin is not an easy matter to wrap your mind around. For this very reason I have written a simple narrative. So if you want to explain Bitcoin technology to a 9-year old, I have a short story for you. But first, kudos to Tony on Quora. His idea about crypto currency and the blockchain working like piggy banks prompted me to write ‘Bugs Bunny and the Bitcoin fairy tale’.
