5 Things You Didn’t Know Bitcoin Can Buy

When Bitcoin was first created in 2008, there were no businesses accepting the currency.  Although this may have been true up until a year or even 6 months ago, things have changed.  Many online and physical businesses accept Bitcoin.  Of all the things we could find, here are 5 things you didn’t know Bitcoin can buy…


1. Web Hosting

Believe it or not, you can purchase web hosting with your Bitcoins. I stumbled upon bitcoinwebhosting.net and was very impressed by what they have to offer.

2. Cupcakes

So you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? You can purchase cupcakes at the Cups and Cakes Bakery in San Francisco.

3. Cars

Check out Bitmit and you will find all kinds of things for sale. Among the categories is cars. I spotted an Audi, Ford, and several other vehicles when I checked out the page here.

4. Knives

I threw this in because, in all honesty, the URL is just plain awesome. Knives4Bitcoin.com offers a large assortment of knives, which can all be purchased with your Bitcoins.

5. Real Estate

Now this one just left me dumbfounded… I found that one person sold their condo in New York (in the Trump Tower, no less) for sale in Bitcoin. Here is a link to the original story.

It really is incredible what you can buy. Although I don’t think it is possible to live on Bitcoin without sacrificing convenience, I think (assuming the price and demand for Bitcoin stays constant) many more businesses will begin looking at Bitcoin as an acceptable form of payment.
