Is there a leaderboard of the largest BTC transactions for real-world items?
What's the largest purchase of a real-world item (not money) that you have made in BTC?

You can not roll a BitCoin, but you can rollback some. Cheesy

Yeah, I've put 1 BTC on the next bitcoin lottery. Gonna get rich quick!

But seriously, without real merchants this is going to be the biggest flop since the Amsterdam Tulip Market  Tongue



Ironically, if Bitcoins are to be worth holding long-term, their price will eventually need to stabilize to encourage real trade. Otherwise everyone will hoard their "valuable" coins until it's all too late.

Has anyone bought from Bitcoin Amazon? http://coinbits.com/want-to-buy-something-on-amazon-want-to-pay-with-bitcoins/
or used the Amazon bitcoin-cashback scheme? https://bitcoinbonus.com/content/get-2-or-more-your-purchase-price-back-amazon

My biggest transaction was a domain name I sold for 30BTC a few months ago.

Looking forward to quantum computing so we can have qubitcoins.

Unfortunately I lost 5 btc on a gambling website. I also won a large amount on that site, so I'm ahead. Look, they even mentioned me. "Congratulations ...HCbaNe7 who turned 3.00 BTC into 11.53 BTC." That's me. Not going to gamble any more though.

Anyway, I also bought a $20 shirt with btc.

Too late? too late for what?  gold and silver aren't used often for money now, but they are still valuable to trade. Bitcoins will almost always have some utility value or collector's value as the first crypto-currency (virtual antiques!).

Yes, we need more merchants. I will become one just as soon as I accumulate a BTC stash big enough to work with. I imagine many other "hoarders" will do the same.

I spent 35 on Portal 2 right before the price spike. Sad My biggest transaction was 47 for some Amazon and Newegg giftcode purchases.

800BTC for a laptop! Nice! We have a new top for the BTC Purchase leaderboard.

If you want some property, I have a 3-bed house I'm trying to sell. Will part with it for 21,000 BTC. It's in Leicestershire in the UK, very nice part of the countryside. Any takers? Smiley

It's become the iconic thread to demonstrate just how much Bitcoin has grown in the past year, but how about 10,000 BTC for two pizzas?

1btc at a time is all I've done, sldoubler and fxnet.  Fxnet has paid off, sldoubler referrals have almost paid off

But also did some 10btc trades at mtgox and coinpal.

Set up the same thing..
