I was thinking about this question, so I decided to search the forum to see if it had been asked in a topic within Bitcoin Discussion before.

I managed to find this topic, posted in February 2013: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=146018.0

Bitcoin was sitting around $25 then around that point and continuing to rise.

So what is the most expensive thing you have purchased using Bitcoin?

Let's not consider trade amounts, I'm thinking more like tangible items or services.

I've been wanting to purchase something like this with the spoils of my trading for a while now, however I aren't convinced by the range of options available to allow me to do this.

I'm aware of a few services that would allow me to change coins into gift cards, however I aren't so sure on how trustworthy/reliable they are. It must be pretty satisfying to receive something tangible with real use in exchange for something that only a few years ago was considered 'worthless Internet money'.

You bet it is! It's always satisfying to see something you want and bought it with your hard-earned money (bitcoin). Honestly, I count myself as one of the crowd who said that but I take it back then. I may have lost the opportunity to be a pioneer of bitcoin but I had my fair share. Smiley

I didn't have too much expencive things bought directly with bitcoin, but the most valuable one time purchase was ~1000 EUR of mining
equipment that i ordered from UK. Sadly, to this day i still regret that purchase, since i only reached ~110% ROI, but lost way too much time and patience with it.

I had bought nothing with those. I save my bitcoin more than the gold and more than the fiat money. I hope that they increase in price and then change them in fiat money or anything else with high value. Sorry to desolate you !!!!

I purchased a murder via the dark web from someone named CoDTasteFearBroLulz. I though the scary name was a guarantee of reputable business. Nothing happened. I'm thinking of writing a strongly worded email to... someone.

I haven't really spent any big amounts just on small things. I'd prefer to keep most of my bitcoins as an investment at the moment. I'll spend them in the future though just not yet. Would be cool to buy a nice tv or hi-fi.
