I’ve emailed another dozen or so businesses asking if they’d consider accepting payment via Peercoin. Should start getting replies in a day or so. Hopefully one or two will say yes.
Here is the email, in case anyone else wishes to also contact businesses. I removed the digital services line when messaging stores which sold goods such as chocolates,coffee or cigarettes.
I noticed that you accept Bitcoin as a payment method, and was wondering if you would consider also accepting Peercoin(PPC) the altcoin with the third highest current market cap at approximately $ 59 million and rising, which is currently worth approximately $2.83, and has been getting a lot of press lately.
Why should you?
Well although Peercoin has a very active community, amazing developers, and has been accepted as the official currency of Trekcon Springfeild, there aren’t too many places selling digital services such as Seedboxes or VPNs currently accepting Peercoin. So you stand to gain quite some popularity in the community. Jay’s Jerky and Goodies started accepting Peercoin yesterday, and they already have several orders.
Secondly Peercoin is one of the most innovative coins currently out there, alongside coins such as Namecoin, or Primecoin, and has one of the highest potentials of any altcoin.
You see Peercoin is the first Proof of stake currency, is designed so that supply will increase at a rate of 1 percent a year, as soon as difficulty gets high enough.
This means that firstly Peercoin inflation rates are rapidly approaching 1 percent(Currently around 8) as ASIC miners are beginning to mine Peercoins(as Peercoin block reward halves for every 16x increase in difficulty), compare this to Bitcoin for example which has one of the lowest current inflation rates of any coin, and is still at approximately 12 percent for this year, and over 9 for the next three.
Secondly Peercoin is amazing for the environment as very little power is required to secure it, as the work is done through coin age rather than mining, so while Bitcoin will eventually end up using several percent of world power, Peercoin will never approach that level of wastefulness.

Please consider adding Peercoin as a potential method of payment.
Heres a list of who I emailed.

I am afraid we are not planning to accept Peercoins in the near future.

Thank you for the message! I wasn't aware of Peercoin, and will look into it a bit more.
