have sent the Financial Directors of 20 top (mostly) online retail brands, who do not currently accept Bitcoin, er, $100 of Bitcoin via a QR code. This experiment is designed to understand the views of the decision-makers at the top brands about Bitcoin and, hopefully, encourage some to actually take the plunge.

It is important to state that many of important global retailers are already on board including: Starbucks, Subway, Dell, Expedia, and Microsoft and eluded in this video.

So the CoinGeek team thought they’d offer the carrot to other brands as yet not on-board, namely: Alibaba, Amazon, Tesco, Staples, Uber, MacDonald’s, Netflix, Airbnb, American Airlines, LVMH, AT&T, CVS Health, Tesla, Apple, FedEx, John Lewis PLC, Spotify, BMW and Red Bull.

It is a very simple experiment and it will be fascinating to see who takes up the offer and who does not, after all its free money, right?

We’ll keep you posted.
