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?

Didnt know that in 2014 wikipedia was accepting bitcoin donations (and made quite a lot in just one week). Is wikipedia still accepting bitcoin donations or was it just once?

I did not know about this before but googling for about 3 secs seems to suggest this is still the case. :)

Would have added a link but i guess that's not an option here. ^^
May you live in interesting times

I think that now more than ever it's time to hodl to bitcoin and other crypto. This year is proving to be filled with ups and downs on the market, but bitcoin always comes around (or so it has for the past years).

Yep! Bitcoin is definitely created for spending or as an alternative payment online or with the other markets.

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 see your point here. The more transactions are being made, the more money miners get for validating those transactions. Bitcoin needs to be spent, but not converted into cash. If bitcoin spending leads to fiat money conversion, bitcoin will continue to lose its value.

This an old thread but I figure I'd reply...I have spent a fair amount of Bitcoin over the years because I was compelled to use it to pay for developers and creative contractors in countries like Argentina, Colombia, and Chile. Until very recently, services that allowed you send FIAT to contractors in these countries did not exist, especially when you're based in the Caribbean. The corresponding US banks have issues sending to certain banks in Latam and so Bitcoin is perfect + people  in the creative class in these markets are quite crypto-savvy.

Shopping with any cryptocurrency will only add to the value of said coin. It adds versatility, reliability, and encourages more trade. Most of the cryptocurrencies on the marketplace today can only be traded on the exchanges and nothing more, which is unfortunate. I've personally experimented with a platform recently called OpenBazaar which is a "free" opensource marketplace similar to eBay or Amazon that accepts Cryptocurrencies. That, in my opinion, is revolutionary - and is merely one example.

I spend a portion but not too much.  I believe if people will do spend much it may drive the price down and it will not be good.
