Even though the topic of buying Bitcon with your credit card or Paypal account will always remain a point of discussion, having such a platform could definitely help with global Bitcoin adoption. Brawker is such a platform, making it very easy and simple to buy Bitcoin.
Brawker offers two different kinds of services on their platform. On the one hand, users can buy or pay for anything in the world with Bitcoin, thanks to their marketplace. Paying for utility bills, food and drinks, and even electronics are just a few of the many possibilities.
“People can spend their Bitcoin on anything available online with Brawker, and they have. From parking tickets to electric and other utility bills, our customers are buying all kinds of things with Bitcoin, and getting a discount on their purchases in the process. We’re excited to give Bitcoin buyers an opportunity to get a great deal, too.”

On the other hand , Brawker allows (novice) users to easily purchase Bitcoins from other users through a credit card or Paypal transaction. On top of that, users selling Bitcoins can set their preferred discount percentage, which acts as a premium favoring the Bitcoin spender.
Conducting business this way could incentivize a lot of people to spend their Bitcoin instead of hoarding them, which is another topic of discussion. Prices can be negotiated thanks to Brawker’s counter offer feature.
The process of selling Bitcoins through Brawker is pretty straightforward. Place an order through the platform for the item or online service you want to pay for, and place sufficient bitcoins (to cover the item’s/service’s price) into an escrow Bitcoin wallet.
Buyers will then bid on the created listings, depending on the amount of Bitcoins they want to purchase. Counter offers can be made, and then it’s up to the Bitcoin spender to agree upon one of the offers being made. Once the buyer purchases the order and the payment has completed, the Bitcoins held in escrow will be released to the buyer.
“The inspiration to create Brawker struck us back in 2010 after hearing about how Laszlo Hanyecz used Bitcoin to buy a pizza. We decided to make that cumbersome process as easy as a regular eCommerce site, and we’re proud to be able to show people how easy it is to buy bitcoins, as well as to buy with Bitcoin online.”
-Cyril Houri , Brawker CEO
Do keep in mind you will not receive any fiat currency in exchange for selling your Bitcoins. Users will receive their items shipped to their door, or their online service access through the person buying Bitcoins from you.
