I woke up in a state of amazement: In my three days of living on bitcoin, I had managed to survive on a handful of services and the generosity of friends.
Hungry for that would let me spend it, I was more determined than ever to call up every single store in the Bay Area that might accept bitcoin.

The platform allows members to contribute to artists or creators that they support. These contributions are made via standard payment methods like credit cards.
Over the past few months, there has been an increase in public outcry over multiple separate instances where Patreon has removed creators from its platform. BitPatron, a Bitcoin-friendly version of the website, has recently come to the surface as a possible alternative.
