AT&T and American Airlines accept Bitcoin voucher
You may remember that recently we tried to persuade 20 top online retail brands to accept Bitcoin for payments, by sending their Financial Directors $100 worth of Bitcoin via a QR code.
The brands selected for this experiment were: Alibaba, Amazon, Tesco, Staples, Uber, McDonalds, Netflix, Airbnb, American Airlines, LVMH, AT&T, CVS Health, Tesla, Apple, FedEx, John Lewis PLC, Spotify, BMW and Red Bull.
It is important to state that many of important global retailers are already on board including: Starbucks, Subway, Dell, Expedia, Overstock.com and Microsoft.
To date Laurence Tosi from Airbnb was the only one to take up the offer but he has been joined by Derek Kerr and John J. Stephen from some of the biggest acronyms on the planet in AA and AT&T.
We salute anybody who is prepared to try something new rather than discard now we hope other companies, maybe some not beginning with ‘A’ will follow suit but if the other two ‘A’s (Alibaba and Amazon) want to join the party, you’re most welcome too!

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
