Our survey of Bitcoin merchants in the UK has ended and the results are in. We reached out to over a hundred Bitcoin accepting businesses across the UK and the internet. In total we received 39 responses; although this is less than we expected it still represents an estimated 20% of all UK Bitcoin merchants.
Update: We have now released the full results which you can see here. We have some preliminary results from our UK Bitcoin Merchant Survey. Our survey opened on Wednesday and will continue to take responses until Friday (14/3/2014). We thought we’d share some interesting insights from the data we have collected so far:
Accept Bitcoins is inviting UK merchants using Bitcoin to answer a short survey (2 minutes) about their opinions and use of Bitcoin.
The UK’s first Bitcoin ATM was launched yesterday (3/3/2014) at The Old Shoreditch Station, a café bar in London. The Lamassu Bitcoin Machine accepts customer’s bank notes and then sends Bitcoin to the customer’s Bitcoin address. The process takes as little as 15 seconds.
