As one of the first businesses to accept this digital form of payment, the story caught the attention of KNBC Channel 4 in Los Angeles.
A camera crew came out to the Calabasas Dental Institute to interview Dr. Greg Rubin as part of a larger Bitcoin story reporter Mekahlo Medina was doing that day.
The segment was called “Bitcoin: How the Currency Works” and was introduced by veteran KNBC anchor Colleen Williams.
The story centered around a group of traders that were gathering that evening in downtown Los Angeles to buy Bitcoin, a digital currency that is not only growing in popularity, but value as well.
Medina explained that because no government entity or financial institution is backing this currency, the value fluctuates based on how many people are using Bitcoin.
The reporter then introduced Dr. Greg Rubin as one of those users.
“I realized there is enormous potential in health care to accept Bitcoins,” Dr. Greg Rubin said.
Despite the value fluctuations, the reporter said that business owners feel confident the currency will be around for a while.
“We anticipate a flow of patients, literally a flow of patients that will pay in Bitcoins.”
The report went on to say that there are a dozen or so businesses in Los Angeles that have started accepting Bitcoin in addition to a couple of Las Vegas casinos and the Sacramento Kings.
“I would call it enormous, I would call it fascinating and bigger than we could ever imagine,” Dr. Greg Rubin said.
