Centereach, NY (PressExposure) April 17, 2014 -- A Space Place Storage is already well known by many people on Long Island and in New York City for offering the lowest prices on Long Island for their storage units. Now, A Space Place Storage is the first of it's kind to accept bitcoin.
Bitcoin is doing something that has never been successfully done before; it is offering a truly universal form of currency that can be used all over the world. This currency gives the buyers and sellers freedom to shop and sell all over the world using one universal currency with minimal tax and transfer rates.
Bitcoin is similar to gold or stocks because bitcoin is not regulated by any bank or Federal Reserve. But with gold or stocks, you have to sell them in a country and then use that country's currency to purchase goods or services, but with bitcoin, the bitcoin is the currency.
A bitcoin wallet (account) also has the freedom that it can't be frozen or seized by the IRS or any government offices. Like everything in life, more freedom usually means more risk, so be as careful with your bitcoins as you are with your money (be even more careful if you don't fully understand how bitcoins work).
After much research, no other self-storage facility seems to accept this new groundbreaking form of currency. This is just one example of how A Space Place Storage is staying ahead of the curve, their website shows how "customer oriented" they really are, http://www.aspaceplacestorage.com offers their customers everything they could possibly ask for.
For a company to accept bitcoins, this means that they are taking a risk by accepting bitcoin in every transaction. People that purchased bitcoins about one year ago (March 27 2013) spent $88.92 /per bitcoin; one year later (March 27 2014) that bitcoin is worth about $527.00. That's an increase of about $438/per bitcoin, so those people that bought bitcoins a year ago know about the rewards of risk.
A Space Place Storage is in no way trying to urge people to pay with bitcoins, but simply offering it as an option. And isn't that what everybody wants from their retailors, the freedom to use any form of payment that is most convenient for the customer? This is why A Space Place Storage deserves credit for being the first business of it's kind to take bitcoin.
