See, any time you buy something, it's a minor leap of faith. You choose to believe that the seller will deliver as promised—and if they don't, you want your money back. That's where financial intermediaries like credit card companies and Paypal come in. They make sure buyers and sellers are both trustworthy, and handle any disputes.
Now, it's nice to be able to get your money back if things go wrong, but that's not free. The middlemen take their cut. Bitcoin, though, has no middlemen. It's just a decentralized peer-to-peer system. So you can't get your bitcoins back if things go wrong, but there won't be any transaction fees. The question is whether non-enthusiasts will think this trade-off is worth it.
... The people who have bitcoins still have no reason to spend them, and the people who don't still have no reason to get them. They don't want a currency whose value you can't predict from one hour to the next. They don't want to buy things anonymously. And they don't want transactions to be irreversible (and certainly wouldn't want that if they got hacked).
En el caso de paypal se lleva sus tasas, y si el comprador dice que no le ha llegado el pedido el vendedor acaba jodido que pierde el objeto (con plataformas de tarjetas de credito al menos hay seguro que cubre esas perdidas) y el dinero. Vamos; que aqui el vendedor preferiria de lejos el bitcoin (no tienes que pagar tasas y si el comprador miente no pierdes dinero). Los compradores lo tienen facil.. si una tienda tiene miles de opiniones negativas es un sitio en el que no comprarias nunca.
