Introducing novice users to the world of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies is not an easy task. That being said, there are certain options to explore when trying to bring in new community members. One of the ways to successfully do that, as Spells of Genesis has proven, is by combining virtual currency with a card game.

At the start of August, the Spells of Genesis team begun their 30-day crowdsale journey. EverdreamSoft, the company behind this virtual currency/card game hybrid, was taken aback by the immediate success of this crowdsale, as more than 240 Bitcoin was raised within the first two hours.

When the original announcement was made about ISG3D accepting Bitcoin payments for their custom-built 3D printer, it sparked a fire of enthusiasm in the Bitcoin communities around the globe.

Instant cryptocurrency exchanging platforms such as ShapeShift.io are an intriguing additional to the world of digital currencies. As these platforms require no account registration and execute trades immediately, it makes exchanging currencies a lot easier compared to other exchange platforms.

In order to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies more mainstream, we don’t need just more major retailers, but also try to convince smaller webshops to start accepting Bitcoin payments. While there are several options available at this point in time, having extra options is never a bad thing. Shapeshift.io has entered that space, thanks to the launch of their Shifty Button.
