There are more and more products you can buy with bitcoin coming out every day.
Luxury products are some of the most highly sought-after items available for purchase, with some enterprising companies beginning to sell their wares for bitcoin.
Some everyday items and services can also already be bought for bitcoin as cryptocurrency is becoming more mainstream. Let’s take a look at some of the products now available.
Your Dream Car
Recently, online marketplaces that sell luxury cars for bitcoin have been popping up all over the internet.
With Tesla walking back on their offer to let consumers purchase their cars for crypto, a big chunk of the cars available for purchase with crypto was cut off. But not the demand, as more and more cryptocurrency investors are looking to spend their digital dollars.
Marketplaces like BitCars.com and Autocoincars.com allow you to browse luxury cars that have their sticker price in cryptocurrency, connecting you directly to sellers. They use an escrow service to guarantee the safety of your purchase when picking up your dream car, where you can pick your favorite, contact the seller, and buy it directly for bitcoin.
Some car dealerships have also begun allowing bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment options, with successful sales of everything from Audis and BMWs to Bentleys and Rolls Royces.
A Luxury Watch
You can also buy watches with bitcoin. Some luxury watch retailers such as Prestigetime and BitDials have recently allowed customers to buy their products for bitcoin.
Prestigetime.com sells many quality brand watches such as Rolex and Patek Philippe, earning them a solid reputation online since they started in 1999. All you have to do is switch your payment method to bitcoin on their online store at checkout.
BitDials is another good option, as a bitcoin-forward online boutique with options that include Omega and Cartier.
Just make sure whichever retailer you go with has a strong reputation, regardless of the flash of their available payment options.
Sports Box Seats
This past March, fans of the Oakland As purchased season passes to a six-person private suite for the price of 1 BTC (valued at $58,500 on the day). The team had just announced the ability to purchase season tickets just a couple of weeks earlier.
Some other sports teams such as the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings have also been accepting bitcoin as payment for tickets.
A Trip to Space
In 2013, Virgin Galactic promised would-be space tourists they could pay for their flights with bitcoin. Today, that dream has become a reality.
With the first successful space tourism flights having just gone underway, founder of the Virgin group Richard Branson’s voyage is good news for crypto enthusiasts looking to hop on the next flight.
Last, of the luxury goods, you can also buy physical gold directly with bitcoin. Since bitcoin’s inception, the two have been competing as the ultimate store of value, so why not play both sides?
One option for purchase is going through the European Mint, which allows you to buy gold for bitcoin using BitPay. Another option is Bitgild, which allows you to purchase gold using your crypto wallet or buy directly from an exchange.
You can also buy silver, platinum, and palladium if a different precious metal is more to your liking.
Using Gift Cards
Gift cards are one of the greatest tools for the crypto enthusiast as websites like eGifter.com allow you to exchange cryptocurrency for gift cards to 100s of different brand name businesses like Amazon, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Uber.
Using gift cards, you can indirectly purchase lots of regular products using crypto, including your everyday shopping at big box stores like Walmart and Target.
Retailers That Accept Bitcoin
There aren’t a whole lot of retailers who will allow you to make purchases with bitcoin directly, but Overstock.com, Newegg, and Home Depot Online are three that do.
Newegg, in particular, is an electronics giant that has supplied lots of crypto miners with their rigs and has been a proud supporter of cryptocurrencies since they first began taking off.
You can also pay for a lot of your recurring services using bitcoin.
The Dish Network allows you to pay for their satellite service using bitcoin. In addition, two VPN services, ExpressVPN and NordVPN, both allow bitcoin payment as well.
Twitch also allows users to pay for its premium subscriptions using bitcoin, as well as lots of other on-site purchases.
Some video game companies are also getting in on the action, with Xbox allowing purchases and subscriptions to be paid with bitcoin.
Humble Bundle also allows you to buy packages of indie games for great prices with bitcoin.
