What to Buy with Cryptocurrency

What is possible to buy with Bitcoins and the list of websites which accept payments in Bitcoins including e-commerce platforms, game stores, booking and travel companies, precious metals exchanges, restaurants and charity organizations as well as payments via subscriptions and gift cards

If you know how to buy and sell cryptocurrency, doesn't mean that you know how and where to spend it. This article provides our readers with the list of places where you can spend your Bitcoins and altcoins as well as the list of things which can be bought with the help of these digital assets.

Due to the inherent flaws of the blockchain, Bitcoin, as well as many other coins, face the scalability issues, which significantly impede the universal adoption of cryptocurrencies. This is one of the main reasons Bitcoin, though intended to be used as e-cash, is now increasingly used as an asset like a house or stocks.

After a steady rise in 2017, the cryptocurrencies are now experiencing what is called a bear market. This term was borrowed from stock economics and means a period when prices are falling down. The opposite of this is a bull market.

And though many crypto enthusiasts decided to sit out the bear market and HODL, Bitcoins and altcoins are being increasingly accepted all over the world both online and offline.

Overstock, Newegg, Shopify, Etsy — these are all major e-commerce platforms that support payments in Bitcoins. On these websites you can choose from thousands of goods: from furniture to electronics.

You can use Bitcoins to add funds to your Microsoft account and, thus, buy apps in their store and video games for XBOX. Many small indie-game companies accept bitcoins. Do not feel left out, if you have a PlayStation. Gyft can sell you a gift card, which you can use to buy a game at the official PlayStation store.

You can buy subscriptions for such services as ExpressVPN and PureVPN to make your online presence secure and private. You can subscribe to Bloomberg and Chicago Suns online newspapers for Bitcoins. Reddit, the largest web content aggregator, allows users to unlock premium features by paying in Bitcoins.

If you like traveling, you can choose from numerous booking and travel companies, such as Expedia, AirBaltic, WebJet, CheapAir, Travel for Coins, Bitcoin Travel. These websites offer hotel booking, plane and railway tickets, car rentals, and many other travel arrangements. If you really intent to use crypto while traveling, visit Millionmilesecrets for a detailed guide.

Even if certain stores do not accept Bitcoin, they do accept gift cards. You can buy those on eGifter, purse.io, instagift, and many others.

If you want to exchange digital gold for actual gold, you can go to BitGold or AmagiMetals. They trade precious metal for Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies.

Gone are the days when two pizzas cost 10,000 Bitcoins. Fortunately, you can now buy pizza for much less. PizzaforCoins will deliver you a pizza if you live in the US.

Some Subway restaurants accept Bitcoins, so if you are hungry and lucky enough, you can have yourself a nice hotdog in exchange for coins.

If you feel like donating to charity, you can hop over to Bitcoin for Charity and choose from a growing list of charities that accept Bitcoins. Also, our universally loved Wikipedia also accepts donations in Bitcoins.

Bitcoin Price at $10,000 is in Danger As Bulls Begin to Lose Support

Bitcoin has been struggling to regain the bullish momentum its enjoyed for the bulk of 2019. Ever since December 2018 when Bitcoin price bottomed, it has mostly been on an upward ascent until it met former bear market resistance at $13,800 and it resulted in a nasty rejection and flash crash that put the entire parabolic rally on ice. Today, Bitcoin price dipped below $10,000 after bull lost daily and weekly support at around $10,185 but paused briefly at $9,800 before falling any lower. Will Bitcoin bull reclaim $10,185 and make an attempt higher? Or will $9,800 break and see a restest of lows around $9,200, and possibly even lower in the coming days ahead? Bitcoin Price Struggles to Maintain Support at $10,000, Bulls Losing Strength to Bears Bitcoin bulls have been not only breathing a sigh of relief now that Bitcoin is once again in the five-digit territory – a far cry away from its bear market lows around $3,000, that put real panic in the hearts of crypto traders and investors who feared the worst was ahead. But Bitcoin bounced, and it brought the first-ever crypto-asset well above $10,000 to $13,800 where it was rejected by former bear market resistance and has struggled ever since to make another attempt at breaking above it. Now, Bitcoin is struggling to even maintain $10,000, the important resistance that was supposed to act as a FOMO trigger taking the crypto asset to new highs. It did incite some FOMO, but not enough to get Bitcoin to revisit its previous all-time high of $20,000 it set back in December 2017. Will Bulls or Bears With the Battle for BTC and Its Short Term Trend Future Most are in the long-term extremely bullish on Bitcoin. Many expect the crypto asset to eventually reach prices of $100,000 to as much as a million per BTC. But irrational exuberance also permeates throughout the crypto industry, and crypto enthusiasts often let their imagination and speculation get the best of them. Clearly, Bitcoin is at an impasse in terms of trading, and whichever direction is finally chosen could set the trend for the short- and medium-term. $BTC looks to be creating lower-highs and lower-lows on the daily chart Marked are the open and support areas based on the weekly chart with previous support possibly flipping to resistance If confirmed, watching the next weekly support at $8975 as a potential target pic.twitter.com/yG2WO2yrzX — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) July 23, 2019 If Bitcoin were to break below $10,000 with strength, taking out $9900 and $9800, a retest of where it bounced in recent days at $9,200 would be retested, as well as potential weekly support at just under $9,000. If Bitcoin can reclaim weekly support turned resistance at $10,200, it could make a run toward $10,500 or higher, where the weekly candle opened on Sunday night. A break above that could have Bitcoin trying for $11,000 or retrying to incite a bull run above where the major rejection happened.

Willy Woo Discusses the Greatest Threat to ‘Bitcoin’s Dream’

Popular crypto-analyst Willy Woo wonders if institutional investment will negatively impact Bitcoin price action.  Willy Woo Wonders… On Tuesday, Adaptive Capital partner and crypto-analyst, Willy Woo, tweeted out a thought that has long been on the minds of many Bitcoin investors. In the semi-stream of consciousness that followed, Woo suggested that the primary reason for the commodity’s sh*tcoin like trading behavior is due to it existing in “a controlled market with a few hands holding a concentrated supply.” While Bitcoin has proven to have an unshakeable network and zombie-like price action that always comes back to please, there is one major vulnerability that could negatively impact Bitcoin price action. According to Woo, this risk to the “Bitcoin dream” is the possibility of coins becoming concentrated into a few hands which will function as “the new bankers”  This is a common theory bandied about throughout crypto-circles and there are a number of people who worry that institutional investment will lead centralization and a dampening of BTC’s price volatility. Many investors are actually drawn to Bitcoin’s volatility and believe that this is part of the ‘magic’ of investing in the digital currency. If it’s price action began to mirror Gold its possible that some investors would lose interest and many would simply hodl Bitcoin as a store of value. Is Bitcoin a Store of Value or a Medium of Exchange? Earlier this year, Diar Research published a report showing that all throughout 2018 institutions were steadily accumulating Bitcoin; especially during November 2018 when the digital asset crashed to a yearly low. Given that Bitcoin’s coin supply is limited to 21 million and that many retail investors hold on to their coins, large-scale accumulation by institutions could present challenges.  Woo ponders “what kind of monetary policy would be sensible to encourage distribution [and concludes] that the 49 year  Jubilee Cycle of debt forgiveness in Babylonian times looks pretty smart.” While cryptic, Woo’s mention of the Jubilee Cycle refers to the conclusion of seven cycles of Sabbatical years and its significant impact on the management and ownership of land in Biblical times. During the Jubilee, slaves and prisoners were supposed to be freed, and all debts were forgiven. Bitcoinist intends to contact Woo for further elaboration on the relevance of this reference.  The Twitter community appeared deeply interested in Woo’s musings and a number of followers engaged with thought-provoking responses. Popular crypto-analyst Dave the Wave suggested that market cycles encourage increased distribution, whereas @less_is_a_lot suggested that solution is a “deflationary currency that can actually work as a medium of exchange.” According to @less_is_a_lot, Bitcoin is nothing more than a complex speculative asset the wealthy use to “suck wealth” away from the dumb and greedy. Some respondents also suggested that it will take a clear fiscal policy where large Bitcoin holders are taxed at a variable rate dependent upon the size of their holdings. @davidegallo suggests that such a tax would “encourage the emission of BTC in the real economy and therefore circulation and distribution.”  Ultimately, Woo presents a fantastic question which will continue to gain relevance as institutional investors deepen their involvement with the crypto-sector.  Do you think institutional investment will dampen Bitcoin’s price action?
