This site claims to have a map of locations. No reason to doubt it. What I find interesting is where they are. Some places, like Boston metro, have 6. Others like Chicago have 45. Baltimore has 16, DC 5. Atlanta,58, twice as many as LA at 29.

Very curious...

Is it only deep web that accepts Bitcoin? I don't know much about it, so yeah, I'd like to read about it.

My interest began with that guy a couple of years ago (I think it was in Europe) who tossed his computer with $1M in Bitcoin on his hard drive & then began a frantic search of local dumps to find it. I'll have to search for it to see if he ever came across it... it almost sounds like a hoax... maybe it was. But, I do recall it triggered an influx of people into the dump to see if they could find it first.

ETA: Well, apparently, it's true...

And, apparently, it's not so dark web...

Sorry I forgoit to post the link. The ones above are the one I used. I came across the topic in an article about cryptoware, in case you're wondering. One interesting detail is high commission rates at the atms, 7-15%.

There was a push a few years ago where legit business began accepting bitcoin, but that effort seems to have lost steam.

What can you buy with bitcoins?
It was a joke because it seems to be the main currency there, and bitcoins seemed to have fallen out of favor in the real world and the surfsce web.

No worries. I read about things I'm not necessarily into, but something about the article or book peaks my interest. Awhile ago, I read a book about Joe DiMaggio. The author claimed him to be the first free agent. Even though I don't particularly like baseball, it was a very interesting read on the life of a great athlete.

I've read 2 books about Lance Armstrong, too, before he got caught. Still not going to enter bike races, but I loved learning about them.

I can't wrap my head around how you're not losing value by investing in Bitcoin, like in having old war bonds... but, I'm trying to learn. Good subject.

The world gov'ts can't mandate or tax Bitcoins, and transfers are anonymous, so it scared them into using scare tactics to get people to stoo using them, despite all transactions being strictly anonymous- which means they can't do jackspit anyway. I'm not sure who still uses them, but to get them you hafta launder them with a program, and you get a key of sorts. One bitcoin is equal to $720 US dollars...I'd be in that dump too. It is the only currency used on the Darknet, so that's why I made that joke. I'd like to get a Bitcoin account, myself.
