1) Never used it in real life yey (hoping to)

2) Definitely. Problem with btc payment is the volatility. Imaging paying 5$ for a drink and a week later realised that that drink was 10$.

3) Ethereum/Litecoin. BTC fees abit high.

4) Seoul

1. Yes I have. I used Bitcoins to buy more bitcoin miners. I've used bitcoins to buy stationary. I've used bitcoin to even my myself an iPad. I've used Ethereum to order a hat once online XD

2. Yes! I want to see more places accepting cryptocurrencies!

3. I want to see more Ether in daily use. Ether is very popular. but not enough places accept it. Also want to see dogecoin and litecoin, mainly because of how common they are.

4. Tokyo, Japan. Having been there, lots ofplaces are already starting to adapt to bitcoin use! Some grocery stores and corner stores accept it. Some shops and boookstores acept it. Some model and hobby shops accept it. It's already happening! Smiley

Nice promo idea but one question.
You make a "Goods" thread (without any relation with goods) and you already have a thread here.

Why to do this with a new thread, when you easily can do it at the existing thread?

Have you ever used your coins in real-life? what'd you buy?

     Gold Bullion (My primary method of buying gold), Curry Wrap (Fees nowdays too high, I think the restaurant stopped taking it), Marijuana, probably a couple other random things from my personal social network.

Would you want to see more shops & entertainment places (restaurants, clubs, cinemas, etc...) accepting crypto currencies?

     Yes, absolutely, but I think people focus waaaaay too hard on this as a measure of crypto success. I'd much rather see my landlord taking Bitcoin. I had a friend whose check was recently intercepted and "washed", which could be entirely prevented with bitcoin payment. High value transactions traditionally still made by paper check are the ones to target for IRL purchases. For a burger or movie ticket, many people will see it as convoluted compared with the visa card they already have.

Which crypto currencies would you like to see for daily use? Why?

     Litecoin seems good for everyday transactions. The community is quick to adapt, but isn't overly focused on making something complex (Like ETH is, which is fine, but who cares if the network runs dapps when you're trying to buy a beer?). Straightforward, simple, focused on the goal of being fast and cheap, and the biggest network in that niche. Seems like the one to push for merchants.

What city do you think will adapt to bitcoins & altcoins daily usages?

     I wouldn't know. I see a lot of support for it in the Silicon Valley/San Francisco area, but most smaller shops that tried to start taking it ended up not getting many customers, and seeing BTC fees rise waaaaayyyy too high to be practical. It's a shame because every time someone tries to accept btc and it ends up being a hassle and a shitshow, it probably makes them less likely to try again. Scaling is obviously a huge issue if you want to see this kind of use, and I wouldn't recommend BTC to any small shops at this point.

Yes I've purchased a few items at a local cafe

Isn't this a given?  Wink

Which crypto currencies would you like to see for daily use? Why?

Bitcoin I don't think will be able to handle transactions on the level required for POS systems so dash and ripple make good alternatives

What city do you think will adapt to bitcoins & altcoins daily usages?

Portland is a pretty forward-thinking city Smiley

Honestly, I'm just making a few threads because some will be replied to and other will be ignored, so going to focus on the one which is going to receive replied =) .

Really Really enjoyed this read, thanks a bunch mate!

Is there any way you can redirect me to those shops you used to make your purchases with btc? If they are in the deep web, no need too Tongue

Oxbridge Coins has a physical location in San Francisco that accepts BTC. There's the BTC logo on the front door, and on the website: http://oxbridgecoins.com/

The curry shop that used to accept it is Curry Up Now, which has several locations in the bay area. Not sure if they still take it. Ramen Underground used to take it, but I can confirm they stopped taking it over a year ago.

As far as buying weed, not deep web. I was speaking ONLY about in-person sales. You would have to have a 215 recommendation and be in California before I could direct you there, however. Wink

Haha. That's so dope. You know your stuff Smiley . I'm going to start traveling the world and looking for people and places to advertise on the classified site. =)
And slowly start directing traffic towards there. Should be fully functional within a year or so.

Would really appreciate promoting it locally if you get the chance too Smiley ... Maybe the first wave of people I should target are Californians?

I'm not one of the crypto millionaires, I'm just a poor boii from East Oakland. But we have plenty out here. Coinbase is located about half a mile from my apartment, and when I drive for Uber everyone I talk to knows what Bitcoin is (tho many don't have any). But yeah, the bay area is probably a great place to start with something like that. Where are you located?

Which crypto currencies would you like to see for daily use? Why?

What city do you think will adapt to bitcoins & altcoins daily usages?

1. Yes I have used my coins to buy miners, giftcards, fitbits, computers, and paid a bar tab once in bitcoin!

2. I would like to see Bitcoin litecoin Etherum most of the major players. If we consider it money we should be able to use it as such. Ether through a app on the phone that converts all crypto to payment or just like a debit system that would trade your currency into anything you would like to purchase.

3. Which city, that's a hard one. I would hope most major cities would in some way or another but I see Boston Dallas, LA becoming some of the first to adopt a new system that would support it. 

Good Survey btw

I haven't still use any of my coins because I feel that I will look weird to other people if I do that. I will wait first for mass adoption.
