Gyft allows you to buy digital gift cards with Bitcoins... such as a Burger King's digital gift cards. You can apparently go in an pay for a meal with your cell phone. Anyone tried this yet?

I find it pretty amazing to see how far Bitcoin has come. People had barely heard about it months ago and now it's almost mainstream!

It's not a technical reason preventing worldwide adoption. It's a business thing.

If this post was useful, interesting or entertaining, then you've misunderstood. 1N6rmaDiPf8ke3mx8217NykAMDZXkX713x

I thought Gyft was an awesome concept until I saw you had to be on facebook, google+ or twitter...requiring people to use social networking for a service sucks...sadly means I wont be using it. It will be good for the many people that do use those though.

How do you actually pay for your burger? Do you present a QR code on your phone to the cashier or something?

Gyft has really made Bitcoins easier to spend on everyday items, not just on the silkroad Tongue

It looks like purchasing of Gyft.com gift cards is not limited to Android phone users any more.

Gyft has now added the ability to purchase gift cards using Bitcoins directly from it's website:

http://www.gyft.com/
(Click the link reading "NEW! Buy cards with Bitcoin")

Direct link:
http://app.gyft.com/me/cards/purchase/

In Satoshi We Trust.
