Bitcoin, altcoin and crypto

Shopping with Bitcoin

In principle Bitcoin can be used for any kind of shopping, trade or economic transaction - even today. You can buy shoes, coffee, a new car or even a whole shop with bitcoin if both parties agree on Bitcoin being the way of payment.

In practice however the use of Bitcoin and any other crypto currency is much more limited. The main reason is that Bitcoin is not widely accepted - and for other crypto currencies this is even more the case. Other reasons are legal regulation or practical limitiations. Since there is still no common international agrement on the tax issue this also can make it problematic to pay with Bitcoins and simlar currencies and tokens.
