I was skeptical of bitcoins for a while, but recently I decided to convert all my up coming sites to bitcoin. There are definitely shortcomings, but the benefits out weight the shortcomings. The benefits are: 1. Accept payments from anyone in the world. 2. No chargebacks. 3. Hundreds of thousands of bitcoin owners eager to do something with their bitcoins. 4. No middle men like PayPal to shut down your operations just because they think you might be a risk. 5. Payments are received in under an hour. 6. No expensive payment processing fees. The technology is young, but it's really going to revolutionize internet commerce.
