Remember Overstock? It's basically a crypto company now

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Overstock Bitcoin Refund - Positive report

Hi guys, just wanted to quickly share an experience I just had.
Made a significant purchase >$1000 on Overstock.com, saw the Bitcoin payment option, and though "why not?" I'm an enthusiast and it seemed like a good idea to make my first true blue bitcoin transaction for goods/service.

As soon as I shipped the Bitcoin, a red screen came up saying: There was a problem with your order, it has been cancelled, please call customer service, etc. ....But the bitcoin was gone!

Called them, waited 2 mins, talked to a nice rep who had very little understanding of how bitcoin works. She told me the order was canceled and that I should just re-order and pay with a different method i.e. paypal or cc. I told her that sounded good, except one thing. Bitcoin was sent, and I can't get it back.

She forwarded me to the "pay support" department where they found the transaction, noted it still needed a few more confirmations to issue a refund, and that they would email me with a request for a return bitcoin wallet address later today or tomorrow. About an hour later I received the email.

I shipped them my wallet address, and I received the USD equivalent (at current rates) in bitcoin right away. Thankfully it was within a few bucks of the original payment.

I am very satisfied with the outcome, but it did scare the hell out of me for several minutes.

Overstock.com just started accepting bitcoins ahead of schedule

As the artice was released there was a quick crash on all markets, Don't know if it was a whale looking to crash before the news hit or what happened but either way I just changed flair.
http://www.wired.com/business/2014/01/overstock-bitcoin-live/
Overstock.com is now accepting payments in bitcoin, making it the first major online retailer to embrace the increasingly popular but controversial digital currency.
Since December, Overstock’s free-thinking CEO and chairman, Patrick Byrne, has been telling anyone who would listen that his company would adopt bitcoin sometime in the next six months. But Byrne is an impatient man. Last Tuesday, the company struck a deal to handle bitcoin payments through a service operated by the suddenly hot San Francisco startup Coinbase, and since then, a team of Overstock engineers has worked almost every waking hour to prepare the site for what is undeniably a key moment in the digital currency’s short history.
“I felt I had tipped my hand,” Byrne says. “I didn’t want someone else to beat us.” ‘I felt I had tipped my hand. I didn’t want someone else to beat us.’
— Patrick Byrne
So, just minutes ago, Overstock started accepting bitcoin payments for everything it sells, from laptops and TVs to faucets and bar stools. Byrne believes this can ultimately boost the company’s bottom line, but that’s not his only aim. For Byrne, a rather opinionated libertarian who’s unafraid to take his company places others fear to tread, embracing the cryptocurrency is as much a political statement as a business decision. Like so many others, he believes bitcoin can free the world from the control of big banks and big government. “It helps us fight the machine,” he says.
