We’re in the business of physical stuff. The over-accumulation of tangible junk in our lives is one of the reasons why 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is a viable service today. It’s no surprise then, that a recent discussion among some employees here at the Junktion about virtual caught my attention. The conversation was about the Bitcoin.
A quick google of the term can overwhelm you so I’ve hand-picked what I think are the best sources to educate yourself on the topic of virtual, untraceable currency.

And after you’ve watched that, read this fantastic summary to better understand the Bitcoin without any fancy, techy words: Explaining Bitcoin without the Buzzwords by Bloomberg.
We’re so used to relying on “stuff” to be physical but as our world evolves, we can’t ignore the leaps we’ve made towards virtual living. It is with this realization that I’ve decided to sit down with Brian Scudamore, our CEO, to propose a new arm of our business, one specializing in the cleanup and disposal of online junk. I wonder if our Truck Team Members will still need the steel toed boots.
