    Bitcoin is no longer thought of as a clandestine currency but is rapidly gaining acceptance even by corporates. The main trending issue with Bitcoin is concern regarding security issues. One of the first websites to adopt Bitcoin transactions is Wordpress and Namecheap who did it with the aim of giving their clients unlimited freedom in payment options. Any other websites that accept Bitcoin?

    I just read that Amazon was accepting bitcoin? I am not sure about this, but if such a big site like them does accept this currency I believe this is a big leap forward for bitcoin.

    This was one of the questions I would ask, but as it already exists... I'll just wait for the answers. :D

    I had already heard that Amazon accepted Bitcoins, but apparently it still doesn't happen (although I think it won't be long before that happens... it's only a matter of time).

    Anyone know if eBay works with Bitcoin?

    My personal recommendation is eGifter. There's a huge amount of gift cards from all kinds of brands, including Amazon. I've used it many times in the past and they even reward you from using Bitcoin in comparison to other payment methods! You get something like 5% of your cash back in eGifter coins which you can use as a discount for other buys.

    I'm not even sure if eBay accepts Bitcoin, some sellers might, but not as an official payment method.

    Overstock.com accepts Bitcoin, so do many online casinos, as well as myself, I accept Bitcoin :)

    After a little research, I have updated the first post with a full list of companies, both offline and online that currently accept Bitcoin.

    I think Bitcoin is not yet accepted as a payment method on eBay. Because PayPal, the third-party vendor who acts as eBay's online money transfer company is also not yet accepting bitcoin. I hope soon they will decide on this too.

    As long as I know Shopify accepts bitcoins, If you're not familiar with Shopify, it is a platform that allows people to set up their own online shops and sell products. You can actually do a lot of stuff with Shopify like buying/selling at cheaper prices and the website is gaining popularity so it might be good for BTC.

    Thanks for clearing up the doubt about eBay.

    Also, thanks for talking about eGifter because until I read your comment I didn't know it. Well... It seems to be an excellent option for those who already use Bitcoin as a form of payment (not to mention the diversity of brands and the reward factor).

    How long have you been working with Bitcoin?

    Thanks for the list, unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any absolutely large retailers/websites that accept Bitcoin straight up. I guess, the website that was suggested above, eGifter would be a good way to shop at larger websites using Bitcoin but it does make the process a little bit longer. The idea of getting cash back if you used Bitcoin is also nice so that is great for customers. I doubt retailers like Amazon or eBay will get into accepting Bitcoin just yet because they may be sceptical about the popularity about it. I mean, Bitcoin is big amongst the techy people but the average joe will probably not use it. People are still getting into PayPal and that has been out for years so I doubt we will see them accept Bitcoin just yet sadly.

    How long have you "studied" before entering the online casinos world?

    I know how they can be - or not, depending on how lucky you are :D - profitable, but... Don't you think the risks are always too high? Or do you really enjoy the adventure? :p

    Sometimes I've been tempted to play, but I've never really risked because of the insecurity and concern of losing a lot of money (within my reality, of course).

    I've opened up my first BTC wallet two years ago, at mid-2015 when I was very skeptical about it. I did it because I had an unverified Paypal account and I needed to buy some Amazon Gift Cards and since then I've been using it regularly for receiving and making payments, even for selling some for my local currency and buying more gift cards when I need them. Right now the BTC value is very high but it will keep increasing so it's worth investing a bit on it. I had 30$ left two months ago and the price went up from 2300$ up to 4100$ as today, so those 30$ converted into 50$

    You entry into the world of Bitcoin was very interesting and ended up being, in a way, usual because it was different from how most people decide to enter.

    The appreciation that this currency is achieving is truly impressive (and the future looks very promising). I need to streamline the investment process as quickly as possible.

    What would be the safest way to start (from scratch) in this world? :)
