Wedbush Securities Computer Services Analyst Gil Luria says online retailers, such as Overstock, will benefit from lower transaction charges as they start accepting Bitcoin. Luria says adding Bitcoin to eBay's Paypal digital wallet will helpt to lower the company's funding cost.

Luria says the losers will likely be the large credit card companies, like Visa and Mastercard, who have a stronghold on transaction processing. TheStreet's Ruben Ramirez reports from New York less
