Andrew Lee, co-founder of Purse, had a common frustration that Bitcoin didn’t offer any incentive for normal people to use it, and had a hunch that he could use blockchain escrows to liquidate Amazon gift cards and deliver great deals. That hunch proved to be correct - and transacted over $4.5M and saved users almost a million dollars. But we don't just talk about it -- we be about it, by....talking about it...with HIM! In addition, PopChest announced they are shutting down. Is this the end of bitcoin + microtransactions? We offer up our thoughts, ideas, and criticisms because we want and need PopChest to get better to serve the community to the best of their ability.
