What would you want to spend your bitcoins on? What do you think could make btc a more used currency?

Post what you would think would be cool to see, maybe a btc sport betting site? Want to buy books for btc? Play competetive games against HUMANS (kinda like poker, but something else)? Buy software? Escrow services? A bitcoin TV ad?


Please share your ideas or maybe improve what someone else said, maybe one day someone will set up just the service you wish for. If it's a simple enough request i might even do it.



Shameless self advertising:
A way to automaticly convert usd to bitcoins based on current mtgox price at for example forum posts instead of adjusting price manually all the time - Think something like this could benefit the trade forum here alot actually, sad to see that no one actually uses it Sad.
If you don't like links, this is what it does: 57 usd at current mtgoxrate is bitcoins.

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=25179

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

maybe a btc sport betting site?

Like http://www.btcsportsbet.com ?

Want to buy books for btc?

Using Amazon?
  - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/BTC_Buy
or elsewhere?
  - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade#Books

Play competetive games against HUMANS (kinda like poker, but something else)?

I don't know if that's what this does but:
  - http://www.minethings.com
  or - http://dragons.tl
There was specifically a human-vs-human online card game, Yacht, but that operator is no longer offering it apparently:
  - http://www.bityacht.com

Buy software?
Again, from Amazon?
  - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/BTC_Buy
There should be multiple options for this.  Strange this wasn't among the first offered.

Escrow services?
ClearCoin will definitely be missed.  Perhaps one of the new ones?
 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Category:Escrow_services

Please share your ideas or maybe improve what someone else said, maybe one day someone will set up just the service you wish for. If it's a simple enough request i might even do it.

 * IDEA: Bitcoin-paying consignment store (I ship off a box of stuff, you sell it, send proceeds less your cut to me)
 * IDEA: A US Mail Forwarding, International Shipping service, simlar to MyUS.com

Didn't know about the sport bettings site, but i would guess moar=better, unless no one uses it.

Using amazon is nice and all, was more thinking about a direct exchange. But looking at the second link i guess there actually is quite a lot of sellers.

I don't know if that's what this does but:
  - http://www.minethings.com
  or - http://dragons.tl

  - http://www.bityacht.com
minethings.com don't actually use btc in any way if i'm not misunderstood, played it a while yesterday but didn't see anything?
dragons.tl is more of what i was thinking but that's pretty much a fancy casino, no?
Not sure about bityacht, but it sounds just like what i was thinking about
I just found out about BIT-FU, that seems to be just the kind of thing i imagined.
Personally i would like to see more of these things, and not just double trouble sh!t everywhere.

Again, from Amazon?
  - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/BTC_Buy

There are probaly more ways than BTC Buy to buy software right now, some are selling on the forums etc. This is something i would personally like to see more of though.

ClearCoin will definitely be missed.  Perhaps one of the new ones?
 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Category:Escrow_services
More = better, again.


Most of the things i said was just kind of random stuff i could come up with though, personally most interested in competetive games where you play against someone else for the bitcoins, like bit-fu.

 - http://bitcoin.witcoin.com/p/269
Can't really say much about those 2 things, but something that comes close to having "someone else sell it" would probaly be bitcoinclassifieds

The witcoin post is just the kind of discussion i wanted here.
