The Salty Porcupine and Bitcoin
Bitcoin is an open digital network that allows anyone to use it, if you have Bitcoin you can send some to anyone else in the world for almost no cost at all. To accept Bitcoin payments we do not have to sign up to a bank or payment processor or pay any of their fees.
We have partnered with a local company, Maine Bitcoin LLC. They buy our Bitcoin so we can continue to fill orders, but we keep approximately 50% of our total holdings in bitcoin because we believe in its future!
We have plenty of Bitcoin designs in our shop as well, check some out if you are as enthusiastic about Bitcoin as us!
