"Bitcoins combine the advantages of cash and chequing accounts," explained Dr. Ron Balvers, chair of Finance and Business Economics at DeGroote School of Business.
Balvers said bitcoin transactions are a safe and efficient way to conduct business. Balvers says businesses pay about 3 per cent on credit card transactions. Bitcoin transactions, on the other hand, are free, although users can pay an optional small fee to encourage miners to process the transaction faster. He says accepting bitcoins can also expand a company's reach into countries that don't have strong banking systems. There are downsides to dealing in bitcoins as well, says Balvers. In addition to dealing with the currency's fluctuations, he says it can be hard to convince consumers to send over a non-refundable payment before they receive the goods. "Because it is anonymous ... there is no way you can guarantee being paid," he said.
