What would you buy or sell in exchange for bitcoins?

Here's what I will buy if the price is right.

Paper bowls, about 10 ounces (295 ml), no more than 50 count factory sealed.
Plastic cups, about 16 ounces (473 ml), no more than 50 count, factory sealed.
Paper towels, preferably regular size Bounty Thick and Absorbent, single roll, factory sealed.

Come to think of it, it's probably easier to convince someone who is already selling something that I want to accept bitcoins than it is to convince someone who already uses bitcoins to start selling specific products over the Internet.

Actually, until somebody makes a fairly automatic exchange service, it'd probably be just as difficult, if not more difficult, to convince some reseller to adopt bitcoins. Sad

Some other exchange services would be nice. If one person is donating less than a dollar per day to his exchange service it's pretty inconsequential. But if 20 people are donating less than a dollar per day to the bitcoin economy, it suddenly becomes pretty significant. Don't wait until everything is totally automatic. I assure you, you won't be flooded with transaction requests.

Just please do something with your bitcoins. They will become worth much more as we start to use them.

Make some online games, preferably facebook-based, with cash prizes and an in-game currency that can be bought for bitcoins.

(Do we want more competition yet?)

I think that a digital currency will most likely be used first for digital goods (e.g. software, mp3's, movie rental, etc.). When usage increase, people will begin to use it to buy/sell non-digital goods (e.g. books, computers, houses, etc.).

When one trades Bitcoins for dollars it actually stays digital, at this moment. New Liberty Standard trades with PayPal (digital dollars). The service BTC 2 PSC is another way to get digital currency (digital euro's).

I believe that it is too risky to trade anything non-digital with Bitcoins, because there's still a lack of trust in this new currency. When a currency is not backed by trust, it has no value.

I agree, it's risky, mostly because of the low usage.

I'm not so sure about the lack of trust however. Since it's open source and using a well known hashing algorithm, anyone trusting that algorithm (SHA), and of course understands the basic principles of bitcoins, only has to trust that the implementation of that principle is correct.

Another strength is that if you only trade with your generated bitcoins, you have nothing more to loose than the cost of electricity and possibly some of your time. It's basically free money as long as there's something to buy.

This could even appeal to people who normally don't trust digital money at all, since they can get an introduction to online shopping/trading without having to go through that oh-so-scary step of actually entering their credit card number on the internet.

Facebook marketplace seems like a good place to non-professionally sell and buy stuff for bitcoins. When you sell stuff, you're not limited to announcing the item price in a mainstream currency, you can write the price freely in a text field. When you buy stuff, you can ask people if they accept the payment in bc.

I'm programming pong for linux from scratch using C++, SDL/OpenGL.
I will release it and everyone can buy it!
WOW, your very own special copy of pong!
It's not like there aren't any free alternatives out there, but it will support bitcoin and me.
It's gonna cost like 500 BTC, anyone interested?

The whole "Let's use it on Facebook!" idea being pitched around is making me really queasy.

Most of these browser based games already have their own model which is already tied to cash in some way. Personally, I believe it could boost the usability of the BC as currency, but IMO people are a lot less likely to take BC seriously if being used in this manner.

I think Facebook would do wonders for bitcoin think about the use bitcoin has now and let's add everyone with a Facebook to that problem. That's a lot of new users to the bitcoin community and that is always a good thing. I also like the idea of selling normal items for bitcoin it's a good idea

I also like to use BTC to exchange items. Bitcoin transactions will promote its development, strengthen it in market circulation.
