After losing almost everything to the hurricane Jose was just happy to be getting a customer so feeling like he had nothing else to lose Jose said he accepted Bitcoin even though had never heard of it.
Not knowing what crypto or Bitcoin was Jose hurried to google on his cell phone to learn as much as he could in the hour and a half that he had until he was to meet his Bitcoin customer.
