German grocery store EDEKA: Bitcoin again accepted - and forever
since this issue raised a lot of awareness, I'll give you an update. One of the EDEKA franchises accepted Bitcoin for the delivery of all kind of food and all-day-products. (april 2th). I postet this on my blog and received a ridiculously outstanding number of facebook-likes, probably because this is one of the very first german bitcoin accepting shops with an allday-use for everyone (http://bitcoinblog.de/2015/04/02/supergeil-bei-edeka-mit-bitcoins-lebensmittel-bestellen/). Soon after that some people told us in the comments and on this reddit-thread (http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/31lw6f/order_groceries_in_germany_from_edeka_de_link/) that the option is no longer available. Today we have an update. A user asked that Edeka what did happen. They answered: the acceptance of april 2th was a test and the registration with bitpay needed some time. Now the registration is complete and the option is again available. This time forever.
