Shops in Mobile Now Accepting Bitcoins

Posted: Updated:
Several shops in downtown Mobile are now offering bitcoins as a form of payment.

Entrepreneur Michael Ray has been busy setting up shops like Serda's Coffee with bitcoin systems.

"It's an easy way to carry around money in your phone," said Ray.

A bitcoin is a form of crypto-currency, or digital funds, that is publicly exchanged on the internet. 

Shop owners like John Serda believe in the potential bitcoin has as a future form of currency.

"It's so new here in Mobile," said Serda. "It's just not a form of currency that has caught on yet."

Serda says the amount of bitcoin sales at his shop have been nearly non-existent since he began accepting bitcoin payments in February.
