Are you spending your Bitcoin?
« on: August 10, 2014, 11:32:03 AM »
I just read this:
http://www.finance-guy.net/finblog/how-will-you-spend-your-bitcoin/10/8/2014

Makes an interesting point.  If we buy stuff with BTC and the company just sells it for cash right away, it's probably not good for the BTC price.

What do you think?  Will shopping with BTC be good or bad for BTC?

It will be good when companies start holding BTC instead of instantly converting it to USD.  I've heard that Overstock keeps a portion of the funds received as BTC.

If we do spend it, we drive the price down today, if we don't it won't grow in the future... tough choice :)

Hi! I think whatever we are going to do with  Bitcoins to keep or spend them, the price will go up and down during some period, maybe within 5 years untill the whole world learn about it. But I'm sure some new generation  coins will  overbeat Bitcoin and their price will probably be higher. Bitcoin  opened new gates for IT developers, showed them a new direction in IT sphere, so they (devs.) won't stop.   That's my opinion but time will show. Nice to meet you and best regards.

I hope the price settles, otherwise it will only be an intermediary for micro transactions...

The only thing I know that's shopping with BTC is good for miners :D
But it might be also good for the price of the bitcoin.

I re-invest a mine back into mining. As my profit grows I will keep a portion of it.

Irony is that companies who 'accept bitcoin' actually never receive any so do they really accept them?  In reality they are accepting US Dollars from Coinbase, and Coinbase is accepting Bitcoin :)

Hey guys,

I am actually in the process of putting together a survey which will look at what people spend their bitcoin on. I would generally say that people would spend their bitcoins on one of the below:

Computer service/software/hosting
Computer hardware
Food and beverages
Narcotics
Other non-legal goods
Gambling services
Gifts/donations
or bitcoin trading.

Ofcourse Bitcoin is something we need to keep in circulation and not make it depend directly on Dollar or any other currency. Unless this relative comparison is stopped we will continue to see the highs and lows for a long time. Lets start making the commodities priced directly in BTC and no conversion or just a simple one. If we all start putting very low price in BTC and same does all the exchanges together, though not possible practically, the price would suddenly rose, keeping all the Bitcoins haters like governments etc aside..

Good idea as long as the Merchants keep some or all BTC and not exchange it to fiat right away. Or maybe Merchants can keep BTC`s circulating by purchasing to restock inventory with BTC now that would be something to see.
Have a BTC Day!

I agree that we need to use Bitcoin more, otherwise it will never gain traction, but given the current setup used by merchants... spending bitcoin is the same as selling it as they just convert instantly to receive cash

I have spent every Satoshi.

Long term the price of BTC should go up (when the block reward halves every 4 years), but I am not that patient :)

I agree. While I save a little bitcoin, I also like to spend a little bitcoin. The general public needs to see it being spent in real transactions. That keeps it from being perceived as just another fad bubble / faux investment opportunity. Makes it a real currency.


Just my two cents worth.

Christopher

I think it's more than just spending it, we have to show why it's better to use Bitcoin rather than cash.  everyday people need to see the benefits

Making BTC or other cryptocurrency as an alternative payment for shopping is a good idea. Although, there are still a lot of countries out there that isn't knowledgeable enough about cryptocurrency. But overall, it's a good way to change your shopping experience..

Hey Guys! Ive ran into a lot of people recently, on this forum or others, who just seem to be struggling to find legitimate places to spend their bitcoins. And for good reason. However, my company, Gray and Sons, recently started accepting bitcoin as a method of payment and we're really excited about it. We are offering a wide range of our products, Jewelry: Rings, Watches, Diamond Studs, Necklaces, and more on bit premier.com So far, we have two happy customers. One through bitpremier, and another that we met through bitcointalk.org Anyway, let me know if there are any products you'd like us to post to bitpremier! All of our inventory is on our website grandsons.com  We are a real company in business for 35 years with 20 real employees and a real showroom in Miami Beach Florida with 6 real watchmakers and jewelers with over 150 years of combined experience. Email us! or call+1 (305) 865-0999. (For some reason i can't post my email. Im not so good with these forums! Still learning!!)

I mostly use them to buy gift-cards and use the gift-cards for amazon or ebay stuff. Also, i top up my phone with them. Since recently lots of stores in my country have implemented btc as a payment option so i`m going to use them quite often here.

Funny that i was eager to get to spend btc in an actual real life situation, went to this bar that`s suppose to have btc payment but their system didn`t work.

Hi! when the price of Bitcoin changes so fast, the best option will be to save some part, and to spend or reinvest another part.

If I can get something cheaper for bitcoin that I can for dollars I would probably just bitcoin to shop. This isn't 100% though because with the price of bitcoin going up just because that item appears to have a cheaper bitcoin price now, doesn't mean it will still be cheaper 1 month from now if the price of bitcoin goes up (if that makes sense). Right now i'm just holding my bitcoin partially because the price is going up, partially because I only own a few dollars of bitcoin ><

yes i do spend them but mainly on game sites and i dont mean gambling im a big mmorpg fan and more are starting to give you ways to pay
even if its through a third party site in bitcoin,the third party sites can be a bit of a rip off but if its not coming out your own pocket and you are claiming micro earnings from faucets then its not so bad,more games and sites should use bitcoin i cant believe they cannot see the potential goldmine of all those bitcoins they could get ,players who would probably never buy or if they do its very little can have a source of expenditure
to use instead of their own money its got to be a win win,if i was a game owner i would be pimping the butt off bitcoin 24/7 :)

It would be a great idea to have btc as major payment option.But i do not think that online major shopping company will take bitcoin payment directly as they already have gift card option available.

Bitcoins are a unique electronic currency. In fact, Bitcoins are coins e-gold can be transferred online, and all transactions are conducted in general and can be tracked. Therefore, transparent system allows users to make transfers without going through banks or exchange. Without tedious registration process and scan the document again - Bitcoin account opening require only one click. In addition, the Bitcoin system based on open-source cryptographic protocols and encryption hacking is impossible.

Bitcoins are digital currency decentralized, so there is not the sole owner. The system is run on servers scattered around the world and is owned by different people. This makes immune to negative factors as well as inflation. Additionally, Bitcoins are increasingly popular around the world; therefore the interest of traders on these instruments is increasing.

I'm currently using my coins to trade on ecoin.eu but when it comes to shopping, I usually use them online. Sometimes I exchange them so i could gain more and buy the items that I want at a much better price or deal.

Buying products or services with Bitcoin ( or any Crypto) is a very good thing in my books. Getting the trading out of the Crypto world and into general public only expands the education. If the "store owners" hold them, trade them for new stock or cash them, I feel its beneficial to the ecosystem as a whole.

AFAIK, BTC circulating is good for the ecosystem as a whole.
What appears to be closed loop ecosystems; OpenBazaar, Bitify, Bitsquare, is actually good for the BTC ecosystem as a whole because it begins the conditioning process of using BTC as 1st choice method of trade vs fiat.
When we stop trading coin for fiat and only trade it for goods, we will see BTC's true resilient intrinsic value.
iirc, there are plenty examples of bitcoiners living solely off of BTC, with only rarely sometimes having to trade for fiat with all the add ons available as of now, eGifter, Gyft, Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, Purse.io, BitPay Card, etc.

The more BTC is involved into shopping and trading, more it will hold its ground in the long run, despite of the fact it is converted into another currency or is kept in same BTC units.

What do you think?  Will shopping with BTC be good or bad for BTC?

Tone Vays has recently been making been making the same main point.
Quote from: the 2014 article
Selling BTC for US Dollars will cause supply to increase and price to fall.

But that's only true if the buyer doesn't replenish his supply of bitcoin by exchanging fiat for them.

Here's a very plausible scheme that should NOT cause bitcoin to fall: 
  • Get a bitcoin debit visa card
  • Exchange some fiat for bitcoin and add to your debit account
  • Spend bitcoin (which the seller exchanges for fiat)
  • Exchange more fiat for bitcoin to replenish your account
Why bother with bitcoin, you ask?  Because while the bitcoin is sitting in your account between spend sprees, it's generally increasing in value.

yes i do spend them but mainly on game sites and i dont mean gambling im a big mmorpg fan and more are starting to give you ways to pay
even if its through a third party site in bitcoin,the third party sites can be a bit of a rip off but if its not coming out your own pocket and you are claiming micro earnings from faucets then its not so bad,more games and sites should use bitcoin i cant believe they cannot see the potential goldmine of all those bitcoins they could get ,players who would probably never buy or if they do its very little can have a source of expenditure
to use instead of their own money its got to be a win win,if i was a game owner i would be pimping the butt off bitcoin 24/7 :)


This, I spend Bitcoin mostly on dice games.

Without spending Whats the point of keeping anything idle for that matter? Even fiat also there is no point and also any other currency. No point at all. So best is to utilize it and use it.

This is such an interesting topic haha. If I make a similar example, It's like a Luxuary Brand, such as Cartier, Hermes etc. Their values are high because not only for creative design but also not many people can actually afford to purchase these items. If everyone can purchase from them, the value and cost will decrease and standardize. Same as BTC lol

I hate wasting it, so I spend it ONLY when it’s necessary instead of for fun. This is one way forward to extract profits for the future. It has really helped me but more than that, I also keep touch with other options around me. I consider them equally important to make investment on.

And, out of those investments, I find this upcoming ICO, Sphere - sphere.social as the hottest thing! There are several points to make out about them, but the whole setup with such highly professional team, you really loses your heart at that. The potential is easy to know once the concept is understood, so truly makes them special!
