⚡️ E62: John on Building Zaprite, Getting Paid in Bitcoin, and Accounting on a Bitcoin Standard

The Kevin Rooke Show

John is the CEO and Founder of Zaprite, an invoicing platform that helps anyone get paid in Bitcoin.

In our talk, we spoke about how Zaprite’s product works, the challenges keeping people from getting paid in Bitcoin, and the things people really care about when accepting payments: fees, speed, and stability.
