    The first time I bought something at a physical location with Bitcoin was in 2012. It was a whole pizza and a few beers at a restaurant in Hawaii.

    Then maybe a year later I was paid in bitcoin by a client in California for design work.

    Both experiences were smooth. I particularly enjoyed accepting bitcoin as payment for working remotely. Something about it just felt right.

    I pay my Treehouse monthly subscription with bitcoin and I have a credit card (tenx - pay) load with cryptocurrencies which I used it every day for shopping.

    I really do like to use more cryptocurrencies. But Bitcoin is becoming mainstream only now, but with so many transactions the network is shitty for micropayments, at least governments haven't resources to track users. Looking forward the rise of new cryptocoin that resolve this =)

    I just withdraw money for the lunch from a Btc Atm. Does it count?

    I intended to attempt bitcoin trading recently, but I didn't know how and when the price will rise. But fortunately, I came on a fantastic Internet page that helped me. Now I always earn living money and don't refuse anything to myself. Everybody, I advise it.

    I buy games on steam with it regularly. It helps when the price skyrockets overnight, feels like free money, ha.

    Bought beer in pub and other electronics. Still think the barrier to entry is too high for the average consumer but when it works it's great - essentially just scanning a QR code.

    The main niggle is if it takes a while verify the transaction - if you are in a queue at the pub this is very awkward!

    I once paid a web developer to build a website for me, he never built it.

    PS. It's irreversible. :(

    Interesting you bring this up. I just saw one in a local pizza parlor in Jersey City a month ago. I didn't pay, but I thought it was an interesting location for one. Nothing else about the place indicates they would have such a modern way to pay. Great pizza too!

    So far I've just used bitcoin and ethereum to buy other cryptocurrencies. I have one or two friends who used bitcoin to buy lotteries on this platform: https://trueflip.io

    Nope. Never experienced a site/store that accepted BTC payments.

    Yeah, I bought an expansion to Cards Against Humanity called "Crabs Adjust Humidity" with bitcoin once. It was kinda inconvenient.
