After Credit Card Blockade of Backpage.com, Escort Teaches Other Escorts about Bitcoin

In response, San Francisco escort Liara Roux has now written a guide for other escorts to teach them how to accept bitcoin for their services.
“American Express, Visa, and MasterCard are no longer accepted at Backpage.com. This is obviously an awful situation; many sex workers rely heavily on Backpage for their business.
