Bitcoin expansion issue price
The recent bitcoin network activity exacerbated by increased restrictions on its capacity. In the past year, the average block size, the number of confirmed median time and memory pool is a huge increase. BitcoinFees.info tracking changes over the past 6 months, bitcoin transaction costs, according to the data we can see that the transaction cost has been steadily increasing, and the increase in the cost of this year is particularly evident.
Now complete a transaction. (need confirmation of 6 blocks, about 1 hours) average cost spent $0.37, this value is higher than the cost of dealing with a lot of cards.
For example, Squar point of sale system popular in your credit card will be charged 2.75% of the cost, if you spend $10 to buy two pints of beer (unit of capacity), then the fee is 28 cents. The same transaction, the use of bitcoin would pay 37 cents a fee, but also need 1 hours to confirm.

Since bitcoin becomes more expensive than before / delay time, I found myself using ETH payment.”
Encryption currency exchange Nocks recently reduced bitcoin support, to use Holland’s Gulden encryption currency.
This is not only because bitcoin is used in dark web use, and it is not tenable in transaction cost and time, bitcoin and Gulden in this area formed a sharp contrast.
