I think I will spend some Bitcoins to buy some physical stuff in a couple of months, I have never tried buying stuff with Bitcoin that wasn't digital (like gift cards, or serial codes for games, like Steam games). I hope it turns out ok when I buy some physical stuff.

Go with trustworthy escrows and you are good to get it done in a smooth manner...
I spend BTC basically for my home needs, the problems I face, or I would say, I live on Bitcoins... Smiley

SO you are just usinf bitcoin daily? Don't you need some fiat money in your life?
Because in my country is just difficult to have just bitcoin.
I just prefer doing both they are nice.

By saying I live on Bitcoins, I didn't mean to say I don't need fiat...
In fact, I convert my BTC to fiat in order to pay my bills, live a free and independent life with no boss heading towards you asking to do hectic works for them...
Actually, I mean that I work for Bitcoins and then convert them... Smiley

If I could go to the store and just paying with bitcoin sure I will just spend it daily.
But I just like to trade it and hold some of my bitcoin.
Maybe later in the future when I have more bitcoin I can spend it more.

I spent my bitcoins occiasionely, simply because there are not a lot of webshops that sell their products for bitcoin.
Having a wider range of webshops that sell shoes f.e. would be better

For now you are right there is not a really large amount of online stores that accept bitcoin. That will soon change though as everyday new stores are accepting bitcoin. The problem we have is the vast majority of people hoard their coins and never spend so if a merchant accepts there is not always the volume that makes it worthwhile. On another note op i vote yes now the price is closer to what i value it at i buy more from online and would buy even more if i could. Plenty of places to gamble your bitcoin :/

Yeah even I use my bitcoins for gambling as you can gamble even with the least amount of coin and fiat currency doesn't allow us to do that, so bitcoins is good if you are used to gambling, but generally I spend my bitcoins to convert to my local currency so that I can manage my basic expenses.

i spend my bitcoins. but only for digital goods.
e.g. my vpn accepts BTC. andi bought some apps with BTC.
do you never trade your bitcoin for money?i think ts normal if you use bitcoin for only digital goods,but i suggest you to try using bitcoin for real goods,maybe online shopping,it will intresting Smiley
if me, I prefer to exchange it into fiat money then spend it to buy electronic goods or etc
I rarely spend a bitcoin online, I usually withdraw in fiat money

So the reason is you don't buy online?
You convert your BTC into fiat and go to a store somewhere and buy your goodies there?
Or do you convert into fiat and shop online and pay with fiat?
my reason just one, little or limited sites that accept bitcoin as a payment option
Sometimes I am interested in an item on the internet, but the site doesn't accept bitcoin
only some sites that accept bitcoin

so I prefer to convert it to a fiat and spending

you can buy the goods shipped in worldwide

I bought some cloud mining today with my bitcoins. It would be good to have more shops that accepts bitcoin so we can give the btc eco system a boost.

That’s great! I was spending bitcoin actively before but nowadays I stopped that and I doing saving as a process now. Whatever bitcoin is coming from my loan and signature campaign I am just holding that only. Not spending now.

You are waiting for the halving? Because that is a great idea.
To just hold some of your bitcoin of all of them, maybe we will get lucky that the price will skyrocket.

For me I was spending also a lot, but now I don't I just save and that is nice.

Is true they are not that shops in the street that use bitcoin, but still online you can buy there some nice things.

For now is just better to save for my opinion is not really needed to spend your bitcoins.

IMHO, you should go 50 - 50... Wink
Save half of your coins and spend half of them, as it gives you different kinds of experiences and some more knowledge and of course, some very good discounts if you purchase using your coins...

That could be a nice option.
But I guess for some people it's not necessary to spend bitcoin as they are making more than enough fiat already.
Getting to learn more about bitcoin and how the transaction will go is also good to learn though

I don't really spend my bitcoins right now.
Is also not needed to spend my bitcoins I actually just spend my fiat money to buy something.
Bitcoin for me is like saving something to wait for increase.
