Do you wish to spend your cryptocurrencies to buy things online? That’s actually quite possible. Every day, more and more companies decide to embrace the payment method of the future that is Bitcoin.
Payments usually get to the seller much faster than traditional methods, as there is usually a delay when using for example Paypal or Credit Cards between the time it takes for the funds to actually be in the client’s hands.
