Hi,

I wanted know why you guys exactly choosed "Bitcoin" from anything else from the other payment methods Smiley
I personally choosed Bitcoin because it's simply annonymus (I don't have to put any of my real life informations) , no chargebacks & I don't have to deal with Paypal bullshits (Limited accounts and crap like that)
How about you guys Grin

When I am on my computer, I can just pull up my online wallet. Do a copy/paste of the bitcoin address I need to send to and click send.

With my credit card it's usually in my wallet, if I'm at home I have to go to where I put my wallet, get my card, set it down on the laptop while I try to type, then get up again to put it back in my wallet. If I forget I have to get the card to my wallet later.

I can also go to something like Purse.io and get a 20% discount if I'm shopping on Amazon. Anything else on the Internet I can use Brawker.

Doing it in a restaurant is just fun scanning the QR code and hitting "send". So easy.

And I like that my money is under my control. Not the whims of banks and governments.

You can buy things on Amazon either using Purse.io or Gyft:

https://purse.io/

http://www.gyft.com/

As Elwar mentioned, you can also use https://brawker.com/ for everything else.

Pretty soon we'll have our own eBay like marketplace strictly transacting in BTC:

https://openbazaar.org/

And even more Bitcoin related start-ups to come this year.  Exciting times!

onewallet.io is set up like ebay, but with everything sold for Bitcoin.  

I have bought from there, and I also have some items listed for sale there.  

It's still small, not many users yet, but all it needs is some time and some more people involved and then we'll be able to buy anything.

And today you can already buy a Playstation 4, a new iPhone, DVDs, a Chromecast, gold bullion, T-shirts, a wristwatch, a bicycle, a remote-controlled helicopter, or some mining rigs.

The fiat I keep at the bank is too expensive. They charge me for keeping my money there and for getting it out. Credit cards are little more than loan shark operations to me. Because of all the hidden fees and traps, I don't even know how much that service costs. And if I want to send money to a friend in another country the prices just get silly.

My reward for these types of transactions are that I get insurance! (Which I pay for!) I also get to spread my personal identity to a bunch of people I don't know, don't trust, and will never meet.

With bitcoin I buy without divulging my identity. Unlike a credit card I do not give information that allows access to my money. It costs pennies to send thousands or even millions of dollars. Best of all, it's over in mins.

It's almost all I use on the internet now.

bitcoin will evole and we will not recognize it in a few years. of course the value cant fluctuate like crazy to use it for the day to day transactions. in some years that will be completely different. we already see that with "LOCKS" from coinapult. maybe there will be a currency pegged to BTC which is more stable and usefull for these kind of transactions. bitcoin would be a gold-standard in such a scenario.

I didn't choose it for the anonymity, I chose it because it's easy as 1-2-3. I can send money to anywhere in the world right here from my computer without needing the help of anyone else.

I am not really using it that much. Just made a handful of purchases with Bitcoin, since my options are limited, here in Austria. But I am sure, that will change over time.

I choose Bitcoin for 2 main reasons:
It is secure by design: Most technologies nowadays are complete unsecure(since when they were invented, security wasn't that important), with security build on top of it. Bitcoin is secure at it's core.
I control the money: E.g. I could just take my paper wallets and move somewhere else, or just remember 12 words. Nobody could really stop me from that. Transferring the money in my bank account to another countries bank account. I don't think, that is that easy. Cashing out, and bringing that cash over the border. Not easy either.

Why? Oh well.. I'm a online freelancer and having a new method of payment could get me more customers. ← reason why I join Bitcoin.
Now, I'm not 'freelancing' for Bitcoin anymore. Instead. I invest my Bitcoin for more and wait for the Bitcoin price to rise.

This is a logical impossibility. My guess is that you do not understand what the word "pegged" means.

You didn't convince me to be honest , isn't that what every other payment method on the internet offers nowdays ? you can send money to anyone anywhere using his Email or Username or whatever & you don't need any help either .

You need 3rd party services. Be it Paypal or E-Banking of your Bank or Western Union or whatever else is there.
