Yes I do, I think that if we do not spend bitcoin stores will never accept it and it will never become mainstream. I do not know how holders are expecting bitcoin to reach massive adoption while they are not moving it, I would love if bitcoin never reached the big price a lot of people is waiting for...

Just ordered myself another pizza for delivery.  Wink

(i must say though, i actually wasn't going to at first but i was genuinely too lazy to go upstairs for my wallet to get my bank card. lol)
This is exactly why BTC has good chances of being popular!
People do what is more easy, if using Bitcoin is easier/faster than other payment methods. People will be more inclined to use it.
This is why I believe in Bitcoin.


I feel the same way, you always go for the easier option I see Bitcoin being used a lot for online payments as standard in the future.

Your right about the stores never accepting it if no one actually spends bitcoins,otherwise whats the incentive for stores to adopt bitcoin as a payment method?

Cheaper transaction fee's don't mean jack to a business if they don't think people will spend bitcoins in the first place.

I spend bitcoins at least once a week, it's really convenient for me as it's more accessible than other payment means in my country.

Actively as in day to day basis?

I don't really, I like to save it up for investments that I most likely will be making in the future

I like to watch it all grow

Maybe not necessarily daily, but i mean like every so often, like for me its feeling like once or twice every 2 weeks maybe.

I still think saving them is important, but im part of the spending team so hopefully a few more merchants are encouraged to accept it.

Im actually quite surprised at how even the opinions have been throughout this topic (and reflected in the poll) i think this is good.

I just started a YouTube channel trying to make Bitcoin based on voluntary donations.
So I am hoping on day I can pay my bills and buy groceries with them.

For now I am just going to keep making my videos...
But I am ready to start using Bitcoin and leave Fiat ASAP
as I hope Bitcoin can help bring down big government and the military industrial complex

Until then
/Stay vigilant friends

I don't spend them instead keep and hold them long term. We never know what fortune it may bring in the future.

If my investment in IOTA will work out, probably yes, but at the moment I just have too less of them. I'm even thinking of converting FIAT to Bitcoin to have more.

Yes. I spend them in an instant.
I don't have enough money that's why there is no choice.

I only spend if I see an investment opportunity to get more of them juicy math problems. I've gambled some of them, but I'm in profit with that as well. I hope to see that trend continue in the coming years. However spending my bitcoins on worthless junk that I could buy with fiat. Not my thing, just because I could just buy that stuff with fiat.
