Bitcoin: Friday Links

I’ve started accepting Bitcoin as payment for my ebooks. I made my first sale the other day and I’m excited to get into it. Right now the ebooks are 50% off when you buy with bitcoins. Partly because transaction fees are lower, partly because I’m interested in the possibilities and partly because I haven’t got an automated system for email delivery (but I spend all my time either asleep or on the internet so it shouldn’t be long. You can buy with Bitcoin here.

    Al – thanks for the plug!

    Eek! the album is now delayed until Wednesday 16th, so I’m knocking out a few free copies before it goes on sale, if anyone wants one? email peter@ukuleleorchestra.com / @tonypenultimate

    Peter: You’re very welcome! I’ve added an update to the post.

    Gwyn: Me too. I’m slightly annoyed I didn’t find out about him earlier!

Got something to say?
