Using Bitcoin In The Real World

Featured Comment

Related to this it is indeed a hot issue that is always being discussed. I myself have not found a place to use bitcoin in the real world. During this time I each use fiat currency in the real world, I only use bitcoin in the internet world.

One issue that I think is not being discussed enough in crypto communities is where you can actually use Bitcoin. Instead of thinking about Bitcoin just as an investment, it's time to think about it as an actual currency (which was its purpose to begin with).

If cryptocurrency has any future, more retailers and small businesses need to enable crypto payments so people would actually have a real purpose of having Bitcoin and could conduct business with it.
 

Yes, I completely agree with your opinion and adhere to it for a long time, and I suggest to friends who have their own business so that they tied payment through cryptocurrency for the purchase of their goods.

Still waiting for the killer app that drives mass adoption, I'm wondering when it will show up. The people behind it will become very rich for sure.

Before that, I'm not too eager to spend bitcoin without a good reason, it's clunky and most staff will be unfamiliar with it. Last thing I want is to get stuck at the register trying to explain it to the cashier who has no idea whats going on.

Even if I prefer cryptocurrencies which don't take over an hour to confirm their transaction for purchases, there is definitely a huge amount of places where you can actually use bitcoin for payments. Just check these two websites:

There are already sections in our country that uses accepts digital payments. And few are already starting to accept bitcoin as payment. As far as I know, some stores here allows QR code scanning as a payment transaction in apps like GCASH and PAYMAYA which I dont know if this apps are only available in my country. The only part here that I know who accepts bitcoin payment is a resort, since there are lots of foreigners who comes in this part for vacations.

In my country, the practical use of btc is still very limited. You can only do a few things using btc itself. Such as mobile top-ups, payment slips and a few services.
I think the real use of btc in the world is still a long way away. It's a lot of fees, a delay in the transaction and things like that.

Yes, I guess that's the way things are. And Bitcoin will now become a currency that will often be used for payment systems. And the solution is only new to the Lightning Network, but in the future there will definitely be new steps to meet the transaction speed at the end of Bitcoin.

How in the future crpto technology will be more widely used for payment instruments, and small businesses will participate but they wait until it has been widely applied.
but what I see is that stable coins are not like bitcoin, which I feel has a high exchange rate, and that can make transaction distances not felt anymore.

The purpose of investing in bitcoin in order to gain more profit. Lots of people at first sight invest in bitcoin for that. I am not alternative of them. I am going to buy some more coins this year because the price is getting lower as usual. And obviously in 2020 the price will be higher again. Waiting for the better days. 

Eh... I beg to disagree. The original purpose of Bitcoin as far as investing is concerned is to replace the conventional paper bill and coins with a digital currency with 100% anonymity and irreversible yet foolproof transactions. If that cannot be fulfilled, the volatility of the coin because of that purpose you mentioned will remain high and dangerous enough to be considered by many NOT to be invested upon in the long run. With that latter reason alone, BTC will never be a safe haven.

I think the use of Bitcoin in real Wald is important. Because Bitcoin is a good currency, Bitcoin is not common in all countries. Bitcoin is not valid in all countries.bitcoin is the most  important in the world

Crypto project was started in 2009, now it is 2020, it has made a great progress but there are some countries which still have not legalized it. That is why people from all over the world use it electronically, first, people transfer it in other E-Currencies, then get via Credit Card or Bank Transfer. But soon, it will be established.

On a recent post I did , I just stated that its really important we put together the right idea on how to use bitcoin on a daily basis because most of the time we are not even trying to make it right, its difficult to even understand how to start using bitcoin to buy something that will cost a dollar, because of its expensive fees, they are too hight and tough to really comprehend thats why to me according to that post, if we are to use bitcoin , then its important we start thinking differently like making one satoshi worth something
