Hi Everyone. I am new to bitcoin and I am about to sell some art and the buyer wants to pay in bitcoin. At first, I was hesitant because of all the scans that I've heard of but it might be the easiest way to do this exchange. Here are my questions
What is the best wallet to use if you are receiving a large payment?
I really want to make sure the process is secure and safe.
What are some of the scams I should look out for in my situation?

''' The truth is, 99% of people still don't give a fuck about Bitcoin. Even those who know what it is, (mostly) how it works, etc. Because they can use their visa and have an instant payment done, anywhere, anytime. Unless they believe they are gonna get rich from this "magic internet money", it isn't relevant to them. Libertarians will be big fans, but other than that, support is sparse compared to population... And some will look at it as simply a tax evasion tool. I'm not disparaging bitcoin. It's just the general population, even those who think Bitcoin is awesome (myself included), won't bother to buy something that is either an incredibly volatile investment, or "cash" that they can use... Almost nowhere. It's going to take a long time, if it ever happens, for real, meaningful adoption and more importantly, real, consistent use outside of the relatively small Bitcoin community. And frankly all the hype posts.. "Guy who owns Bitcoin predicts Bitcoin will be worth 500k!".. is a turn off for a lot of people. Because it makes it sound like... "Herbalife products will not only help you live to 100, they will make you rich!" Non bitcoiners coming to this subreddit can easily, and reasonably, assume it's a pyramid scheme feeding those who already own it. And that's a problem.

OKEx CEO: "I think DCEP can be a game-changer in the finance, blockchain, and crypto spaces. Unlike Bitcoin or Libra and USDT, DCEP is 100% state-backed by the government’s reserve fund. What’s more, from a legal perspective, DCEP is a legal tender, so merchants cannot refuse payment in DCEP."
Steve Patterson: "Awesome tech on Bitcoin Cash: trivially easy dividend payments! When I wrote "What's the Big Deal About Bitcoin?", I envisioned stocks being issued on the blockchain, and this is the tech that can do it. Once legal issues are solved, this is the future."
Samson Mow: "What need? Digital payments are easy and options are abundant. Feel free to use credit cards, PayPal, Venmo, Alipay, WeChat Pay, Interac, KakaoPay, etc. #Bitcoin is the foundation of a new global financial system - don’t mistake it for a simple payments provider."
What is the incentive of companies accepting Bitcoin as payment?
I’ve seen plenty of headline news saying Whole Foods, AT&T and other big companies are “accepting Bitcoin as payment” when in reality, they accept the Bitcoin through a third party and then the third party converts it to cash for the company. So what’s the point? To me, this news means very little as companies would have extreme currency risk on their balance sheets/income statements if they did keep the actual Bitcoin.

I would like some thoughts / feedback, also discussion in regards to accepting online payments.

WP powers an estimated 30% of global websites - and there isn't a decent payment plugin! And look at hte installation numbers - almost non-existent. What gives?
