Various merchants have jumped on board the Bitcoin bandwagon in the past few years, which at first, led to great success in terms of sales. However, it seems like Bitcoin purchases are becoming less and less frequent in numerous cases. Even gift card platform Gyft has seen a decline in Bitcoin revenue and a surprising uptrend in credit card transaction volume.
Bitcoin has proven to be a powerful ally when it comes to collecting online tips as a content creator. Rather than relying on advertising revenue, or putting up a subscription paywall, online tips can keep websites ad-free, just they way they are supposed to be. ChangeTip is one of the leading companies in terms of enabling online tipping with Bitcoin; and their recent Gyft integration makes the service even more appealing.
Blockchain technology allows us to accomplish many great things, and we have only just started to discover the tip of the iceberg of its full potential. As we discover these new use cases for the blockchain, our society can evolve towards a more digital form, which is a situation we have been in for some years now. Gyft.com, one of the leading fit card platforms, has involved blockchain-powered gift cards.
There are plenty of options to spend your Bitcoins, both in an online and offline fashion. The number of online retailers is vastly superior compared to the offline merchants, but both numbers are showing a healthy growth rate year over year. Have you ever wondered if you could spend your Bitcoins on gift cards? You sure can!
Gyft.com – Gift Cards Galore
Gyft is one of the biggest Bitcoin retailers when it comes to purchasing gift cards of all sorts. Contrary to popular belief, Gyft is not only accepting Bitcoin for their gift cards, as you can easily pay with Paypal/credit card/Google Buy as well. But the main goal of Gyft is to push Bitcoin awareness and adoption to new levels. In fact, Gyft.com was one of the very first online merchants to accept Bitcoin payments!
We have been asked a lot of questions by non crypto users about Bitcoin and what you can do with it. Some people we spoke to referred to it as “useless fictitious monopoly money”. When we asked how some of these people came to that conclusion or where they got the evidence to back up their claims they are usually silent.
In the rare occasions where we did get a response it is usually along the lines of citing biased sources, like bank officials ( yes trusting a bank is the really smart) or other self proclaimed “experts” in the financial sector ( who fail to grasp the elementary workings of Bitcoin).
Today marks a very important day for Bitcoin and even digital currencies in general, as the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl will take place in a few hours from now. Even though sports and Bitcoin might seem like an unlikely combination, the Bitcoin Bowl is the very first sporting event to take place under the banner of this increasingly popular cryptocurrency.
While I can understand not every Bitcoin user or enthusiasts is a fan of sports, and certainly not a fan of American Football, it is worth spending a few hours of your time to watch the Bitcoin Bowl. After all, most of us are involved in Bitcoin because we want to be on the front row when history is being made, and the Bitcoin Bowl will definitely help us get there.
It has been announced for quite some time now we would see a BoomCoin Core Development Whitepaper being released very soon. As of two days ago, that exact whitepaper has been unveiled to the public. The time has come for us to take a closer look at this document and see what the fuss is all about.
Most of your cryptocurrency enthusiasts will know by now that BoomCoin was created by Cleverhash Technologies, the same people behind the Cleverhash ASIC miners and the CHASH token which recently completed its ICO.
When I try to explain the use cases of Bitcoin to other people who may or may not have heard of cryptocurrency, it’s always a good idea to name a few things most people would benefit from. As a Belgian citizen, BItcoin is not too popular over here just yet, but there are some interesting use cases for sure.
