Today I had to go to a small shopping center not too far from my house.
My key broke recently and I had to have it replaced.
I went to the shopping center with Bianca.
While walking to the key shop we came across this bed shop.
It had a very recognizable sign in the window.
I was well surprised!
Bitcoin accepted! In this small town! Fantastic!
If I had more time I would have gone in and inquire because I want to know more.
I'll go back there when I have more time.
I would like to know the story behind the sign.
But anyway, it's little things like this in my 'real' life that show me crypto is slowly becoming more accepted.
I think that's very cool.
Later that day I had a dinner with Ronald.
Now, I don' t think I ever mentioned him before.
He's one of my brother's friends but I have known him for a very long time as well and we get along great.
The reason we ended up together is that my brother had the great idea that he, his friends and me would come together on the first Tuesday of March to eat ribs.
A great idea to stay in touch.
Because for some reasons when you get older this gets harder and harder.
Sadly, when push came to shove almost everyone canceled for reason X.
Ronald and I were the only one left and we decided to roll with it.
It was a lot fun.
Ronald is a very smart guy and he told me he got into crypto around a year ago.
He invested in some projects but nothing major.
What I liked is that he was interested in blockchain in general and the technics behind it.
It's just different from the generic 'Mark, What do I need to buy (to make massive profits)?"
I could explain the difference between POW, POS and the DPOS systems (the one we have here on the steem blockchain) for instance.
And that's what I enjoy.
Explaining things to someone that wants to know.
And all this over ribs and a beer!
Could be worse :)
I love these unexpected little gems in life.
