Could this be one of the first 'Powered by Bitshares' products?
With the ability for brick and mortar store to accept and store crypto denominated in bitAssets stores will begin to prefer holding bitAssets to cash or bank payments.
Not having to pay credit card fees or wait for bank transfers, BitShares makes economic sense. Once accounting features are implemented into merchant wallets businesses will be able to easily keep track of their supplies and more efficiently manage stock.
I think that merchants should be encouraged to sell their fiat cash for bitAssets. This saves them security fees. For a small %, customers who prefer privacy will sell their bitAssets for cash to a merchant. Convenience for the customer. Efficient cash management for the merchant.
The merchant could even set a dynamic price in order to balance cash-on-hand. When the tills are low set prices to encourage users to sell you cash and coins, and when the till is full set prices to encourage users to buy your cash with bitAssets. Could this functionality be coded into a bts merchant wallet and integrated with a cash-register. Or maybe a smartphone app that connects with the till somehow?
The customer can then make a quick profit. If they get a favorable rate to buy bitAssets with cash, they can instantly sell those bitAssets to their bank accounts via a gateway for a profit.
If they got a favorable rate to sell their bitAssets for cash, then the customer can spend that cash on something they were about to spend bitAssets on, but they save a small %.
Benefits all around. Particularly the shareholders!
