Homeless Guy makes more money using Square and mobile payments

Homeless guy Mark aka “Madwhite” is raking in a lot more dough now that he accepts Square, Visa, MasterCard or DiscoverCard transactions. In fact, he’s making 4 times what he normally makes because he says now people can’t use the “I have no cash” excuse. Smart.

Once they swipe their credit card, he even lets them know it’s a tax write off! And the best part for Madwhite? Once he has your information, he’ll email you to let you know what corners he’ll be frequenting next. If you’re lucky enough, maybe he’ll even shoot you a text.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

Why do I have a feeling this went down in Florida…

Watch Mark discuss his mobile payment transactions below in this nearly unbelievable video shot by Roger BStillz.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, it’s fake.
