Per popular request we're exploring alternative payment options. Let's assume we keep Paypal and ONLY add as an option, will you use Bitcoin for future purchases?

@PINE64 I don't see a point. 99.9% of people don't use bitcoin. Credit/debit cards might make more sense, as almost everyone has one, and you can always use a service like to hide your transaction from your bank if your that worried about privacy.


@briana @PINE64 99.9% of the population doesn't buy ARM laptops or a dev smartwatch to play with embedded Rust. There is a 16% on the poll that say they would use Bitcoin, so it shows that their customers and cryptocurrency users are way more closely related than you expected. Crypto is better money.. not everyone is able to have a bank account, credit card, or PayPal account. I can't have the later. There aren't institutional gatekeepers on Bitcoin. Download, install, use.

@askesis @PINE64 If there's no extra burden on the pine team, then go for it. But i think the reason they are doing this poll is because it would put quite a bit of extra workload on them, just as credit/debit card processing would.
