While we were excited to be the first ones to dive in, it also gave us some great insight into how this new digital currency affects businesses. (See our Bitcoin acceptance blog post)Currently Elite Email has subscribes in different parts of the world paying in Bitcoin and we actually pay some suppliers in Bitcoin as well.
