    Have you bought anything using cryptocurrency? I've got various coins, some mined in 2013 and some bought more recently, but this week was the first time I've ever spent them directly.

    I bought a 34 inch curved 4k monitor, a really fast usb stick, a 2.5 SDD enclosure, a usb-c to hdmi/usb connector and a Noble Epic gaming chair using bitcoin from scan.co.uk, who I can't recommend enough for making it very quick and easy

    I mined mine years ago and had trouble selling it on an exchange so in the end I spent it with a reputable company instead. It's a great way to buy as you can make crazy gains on one day e.g. Pay £100 today and it could be worth £200 tomorrow so you can get great deals. Just be aware it's as risk as it's equally likely you could pay £100 today for a crypto that's worth 1 pence tomorrow :S

    Not officially but for nights out I’ve been using Dogecoin with my mates. If gig tickets etc. are bought by one person then we wire the cash to them via Dogecoin. :)

    I've bought a few games on Steam with Bitcoin. I paid for an artist in Brazil to do some work for me with Bitcoin. I'm self employed and have a few clients around the world, two of those clients pay me using Bitcoin since the transaction times are about 10 minutes compared to a few days with international bank transfers.

    It's quite a funny story. I remember trying to get rid of the remaining btcs in online casinos without any hope for a jackpot- just having some fun time gambling. And I ended up winning enough to buy new ps4. Test the luck as well if you want live casino games real money

    I havent heard any actual experiences of using crypto currencies in purchasing things until I bumped into this thread. It is interesting investing in this arena but very risky.

    Not yet, but hopefully one day.
    Can I ask, why use the Coins to buy something rather than cash out for actual money value?
