The Bitcoin Trading Industry Is Ready to Take Off

First Financial Wants to Go Along

Bitcoins are the currency of choice for an unpredictable future. First Financial has researched this burgeoning industry and is excited to serve it. Traditional banks turning these companies down for merchant services just haven’t done their due diligence.

We found:  

Jupiter Research predicts that Bitcoin transactions are expected to triple in 2017, making it a $92 billion dollar industry.[1]

The price of Bitcoin has been expected to increase 165% to a worth of $2,000 in 2017.[2]

We’ve already seen an uptick of retailers utilizing the Bitcoin payment concept. Some of these include Sears, Intuit, vendors on Etsy,, Kmart, Home Depot, Whole Foods, Subway,, Dell, and Dish Network.[3]

The global economy we share is showing signs of backing away from its “fiat” currency base, which makes the future of spending money as we know it obsolete. This may be why bitcoin currency is gaining in popularity worldwide. Japan has already accepted Bitcoin into its national currency system, and such countries as China, Ecuador and Mexico trying to develop their own digital currency models.

Keep in mind, too, how common stories of government computer tampering and distrust in any kind of security issues have become. With bitcoins, all transactions are anonymous, protecting both consumer and vendor. The adoption of bitcoins could put online hackers out of business!
