Nine Countries That Don’t Tax Bitcoin Gains- time to move

Tax liability is a major source of concern for anyone invested in Bitcoin and other digital assets. In sum, some have described it as nothing short of a nightmare.
But while some countries are putting pressure on investors and levying taxes on income and capital gains from Bitcoin transactions, many are taking a different approach—often with the aim of promoting better adoption and innovation within the crypto industry. They’ve implemented friendlier legislation, and allow investors to buy, sell, or hold digital assets with no tax liability.
Here’s our list of the nine most crypto-friendly tax jurisdictions.
———————
  1. Belarus 🇧🇾
Belarus is taking an experimental approach to cryptocurrencies. In March 2018, a new law legalized cryptocurrency activities in the East European state, exempting individuals and businesses involved in them from taxes until 2023 (when it will come up for review.)
Under the law, mining and investing in cryptocurrencies are deemed personal investments, and so exempt from income tax and capital gains.
The liberal laws aim to boost the development of a digital economy, and technological innovation. The country was recently ranked third in Eastern Europe and 19th globally in levels of P2P crypto trading.
  1. Germany 🇩🇪
Germany offers a unique take on taxing digital currencies such as Bitcoin. Unlike most other states, Europe’s biggest economy regards Bitcoin as private money, as opposed to a currency, commodity, or stock.
For German residents, any cryptocurrency held for over a year is tax-exempt, regardless of the amount. If the assets are held for less than a year, capital gains tax doesn’t accrue on a sale, as long as the amount does not exceed 600 euros ($692).
However, for businesses it’s a different matter; a startup incorporated in Germany still needs to pay corporate income taxes on cryptocurrency gains, just as it would with any other asset.
  1. Hong Kong 🇭🇰
Hong Kong’s tax legislation on cryptocurrencies is a broad brush affair, even after new guidance was issued earlier this year.
Essentially, whether cryptocurrencies are taxed or not depends on their use, according to Henri Arslanian, a global crypto leader at PwC.
“If digital assets are bought for long-term investment purposes, any profits from disposal would not be chargeable to profits tax,” he wrote in March when the directive was introduced. But he added that this doesn’t apply to corporations—their Hong-Kong sourced profits from cryptocurrency business activities are taxable.
  1. Malaysia 🇲🇾
In Malaysia, cryptocurrency transactions are currently tax-free, and cryptocurrencies don’t qualify for capital gains tax, because digital currencies are not considered assets or legal tender by the authorities.
But the law is currently fluid; it only applies to individual taxpayers, and businesses involved in cryptocurrency are subject to Malaysian income tax.
And things may soon change. Mohamad Fauzi Saat, director of Malaysia’s tax department said in 2018 that Malaysia was committed to working towards issuing comprehensive guidelines on the tax treatment of cryptocurrency by the end of 2020.
  1. Malta 🇲🇹
The government of the so-called “Blockchain Island” recognizes Bitcoin “as a unit of account, medium of exchange, or a store of value.”
Malta doesn’t apply capital gains tax to long-held digital currencies like Bitcoin, but crypto trades are considered similar to day trading in stocks or shares, and attract business income tax at the rate of 35%. However, this can be mitigated to between five percent and zero, through “structuring options” available under the Maltese system.
Malta’s fiscal guidelines, published in 2018, also discriminate between Bitcoin and so-called “financial tokens,” equivalent to dividends, interest or premiums. The latter are treated as income and taxed at the applicable rate.
  1. Portugal 🇵🇹
Portugal has one of the most crypto-friendly tax regimes in the world.
Proceeds from the sale of cryptocurrencies by individuals have been tax-exempt since 2018, and cryptocurrency trading is not considered investment income (which is normally subject to a 28% tax rate.)
However, businesses that accept digital currencies as payment for goods and services are liable to income tax.
  1. Singapore 🇸🇬
Capital gains tax does not exist in Singapore, so neither individuals nor corporations holding cryptocurrency are liable.
But companies based in Singapore are liable to income tax, if their core business is cryptocurrency trading, or if they accept cryptocurrency as payment.
The authorities consider payment tokens such as Bitcoin to be “intangible property” rather than legal tender, and payment in the cryptocurrency constitutes a “barter trade” where the goods and services are taxed, but not the payment token itself.
  1. Slovenia 🇸🇮
Slovenia is another country that treats individuals and businesses separately under its cryptocurrency tax system.
No capital gains tax is levied on individuals when they sell Bitcoin, and gains are not considered income. However, companies that receive payment in cryptocurrencies, or through mining, are required to pay tax at the corporate rate.
Notably, the Mediterranean country doesn’t permit business operations in cryptocurrency alone (such as only accepting Bitcoin as payment.)
  1. Switzerland 🇨🇭
It’s no surprise that Switzerland, home to the innovation hub known as “Crypto Valley”, has one of the most forward-thinking tax policies too.
Cryptocurrency profits made by a qualified individual through investing and trading are treated as tax-exempt capital gains.

NOT SURE IF A SCAM REMOTE JOB OFFER! (Global AMC Company)

A few days a got an e-mail from a global company Global AMC based in Texas https://global-amc.com/ that I didn't apply for. They said they "got my CV from the Indeed job portal", I had been using Indeed job portal but hadn't filled out the cv blanks on the Indeed webpage, I was always only sending CV to employers as PDFs. So it was just my name and e-mail there. Also, none of my previous work experience had anything to do with finances or handling money. I was a Visual Artist / Content Manager. So I was a bit surprised.
I clicked on the link they sent me and after signing up on their platform it gave a brief overview of what's the process like (good-looking website). They asked me to sign the job agreement already, which I did, and write my current address (Germany) and send photos of 2 documents, and then I could start my paid training already. All the work would be 9-6 pm remote work. A bit more than 2000€ per month.
I did check out their website for some background research too, and in the "about" page were gaps in the text where it should have been "location", "time period" etc, like a fill-in text template. Also, the same staff people + some more work in another company "ACE & Company" https://aceandcompany.com/ with a similar mission with headquarters in Geneva.

I googled: "Is Cryptocurrency legal in Germany?" = German cryptocurrency taxation: ether, IOTA and Co. Unlike the euro (considered fiat money), Bitcoins and other cryptographic currencies are not legal tender.
This all might be totally legit as it's a less than 50 employees company that's just starting out, but I've never worked on such a profession or managed any transactions so I would be super thankful for any insights on the topic!

This is the e-mail copy paste:
"Dear ***,

Below is the link to the company site where you would have to register and also get access to all the information regarding the job position. I am available to guide you through the process and answer all questions. https://cp.global-amc.com/ Also during registration, please select Account Manager for the vacancy option and *** as Manager
NB: This job offer is only open to candidates with European passport.
Below is the work Road map 1. register with Global AMC 2 register a payment system for working with crypto exchange 3 pass KYC verification 4 Open a bank Account through which you can make international transactions with the crypto exchange 5 register in the crypto exchange 6 get verified by KYC 7 start training with us / finish training 8 get connected with a client via our system 9 receive funds from a client 10 deposit crypto exchange 11 make a deal on cryptocurrency 12 send crypto currency directly to the client and get your commission 13 Get feedback from customer

And some information from their portal:

Top 8 crypto-friendliest countries

Top 8 crypto-friendliest countries
Depending on the country, the attitude to crypto and blockchain may vary from enthusiasm and support to total ban. We are going to briefly explore every category, starting with the most supportive and friendliest states.
Here is our Top 8 list:
🇯🇵Japan. The first country to recognize BTC as a legal tender in April 2017. Japan is also one of the biggest Bitcoin traders in the world, with a huge amount of retailers accepting crypto payments.
🇲🇹 Malta. This little island state was the first to build a clear legal framework for ICOs and crypto investments. The government is very supportive and encouraging of crypto startups.
🇨🇭Switzerland. The financial center of Europe wants to extend its power to the digital currency sector, too. The canton of Zug hosts the Crypto Valley - a unique ecosystem where blockchain startups enjoy a good taxation climate and other benefits.
🇫🇷France. Last year, France enacted 2 progressive regulatory regimes to encourage blockchain innovations. It removes legal unclarity, one of the biggest problems of this sector. At the same time, those acts empower the state authorities like AMF, making them main industry regulators.
🇪🇪Estonia. The first state to legalize crypto-related activities, Estonia granted many licenses to exchanges, wallet providers, and other businesses. One of the best places to run a STO (Security Coin Offering).
🇩🇪 Germany. This country is crypto neutral, in a good sense. They don’t see crypto as a financial tool. Thus cryptocurrency traders have no need for licensing and investors don't adhere to the national security regulations.
🇬🇮 Gibraltar. Another sandbox that welcomes blockchain business and provides clear and friendly crypto-related laws. One of the best places to get your fintech startup licensed.
🇸🇮Slovenia. This state is home to many blockchain startups, due to its beneficial laws. The capital Ljubljana has the first crypto mall in the world (BTC City Center) where every retailer accepts BTC.
Next time we will offer you our list of ‘grey areas’ with controversial attitude to crypto.

[Weekly Report] Micropayments Change the Future of Blockchain

[Weekly Report] Micropayments Change the Future of Blockchain
Dear friends of LivesOne,
In the previous weekly report, we mentioned that LivesOne would focus on building a payment platform, which is our major development direction. After a period of research, we recommend BSV's micro-payment. We're all familiar with payments, but what exactly is micropayment? Let's learn about it today.
What is micropayment?
Micropayment is compared with the existing third-party payment system. At present, PayPal is the world's largest third-party payment provider, and its "micro payment" service charges 5% plus 5 cents for each transaction. If it's a $1 deal, PayPal charges a 10% commission.
At present, PayPal as an American company has almost monopolized the third-party payment market except China. Alipay and WeChat have monopolized the Chinese market, but their status is not unbreakable. If you are a Chinese businessman, the goods you sell may be bought by foreigners, while Alipay and WeChat only connect the domestic consumers. Will you refuse to add a collection options? If you are a Chinese consumer and want to buy goods only sold by foreign businesses, will you refuse to install an additional payment option? Under the general trend of global commodity connectivity, the market scale of cross-border payment in China has been growing steadily year by year.
https://preview.redd.it/r5jb1fi2nb841.jpg?width=720&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=66a00e8d6e990b0969d35109271677b36fafb373
If Alipay and WeChat are do nothing, the market share will definitely decrease year by year. In contrast, because the underlying design of BSV is the original bitcoin and point-to-point, the operation cost and handling fee are far lower than PayPal. It's also a $1 deal, with BSV charging about $0.0003. This means that there is no pressure on the BSV network that PayPal cannot cover.And even if PayPal is adjusted to a lower fee than the BSV network, BSV can be adjusted accordingly, because of the relative cost advantage.
BSV opens up the situation through micropayment and circulates as a global commodity (like physical gold). Payee can choose not to convert it into legal tender and deposit it like gold. Paypal will never be able to do that without the advantage of currency exchange.
Micropayment instance of BSV
As one of the application development of BSV, Mediopay in Germany has launched a product for article reading.
https://preview.redd.it/z2eyzhu3nb841.jpg?width=720&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6dd5b3022317c43747f1c7c42f6447d635c146bd
As an example, the demo on the official website of the above picture: Regardless of the national currency of the readers in the world, readers only need to pay the BSV of the same value (such as the 22 cents in the figure) to read the article.
The application is based on WordPress, the world's largest personal blog tool. Bloggers can use the app on WordPress in a few simple steps, and set the amount that readers need to pay to activate the paid reading function.
Even a transaction with a price of as little as 1 cent,you only needs to pay 3% of the handling fee to BSV miner, which may even continue to decrease in further. As an application developer (such as the Mediopay team), you can charge the author a percentage of the service fee. Taking the one-cent micropayment as an example, if 3% of the service charge is paid to BSV miner, the developer can get the service charge to 7%. The third-party payment tool represented by PayPal is only a development team, even if the team structure is complex and huge. However, there is no limit to the number of development teams based on BSV payment tools, and they are globally distributed. If you don't do it, someone else will do it.
Many knowledge payment platforms provide the function of paid reading, but they cannot be allowed to purchased only one article. This rejects the majority of readers with only mild reading needs. Micropayments precisely solve this problem. Because there is no longer bundled sale, excellent authors can stand out quickly - which in turn boosts the consumer market.
Micropayment breaks the existing business model. It is imperative for LivesOne to introduce BSV micropayment. Let's look forward to it.

[ECON] The Great Redemption

[M] Apologies for reposting this, but on my end the post kept disappearing for some reason, and I doubt anyone else could see it.
—————
[Central Bank of Chile](https://www.bcentral.cl/web/central-bank-of-chile/home), Augustinas 1180, Santiago de Chile

The Road to Redemption

January 9th, 2022
Following the collapse of Lehman Brothers on September 15th, 2008, the international financial fabric was torn apart into an existential crisis. Threatened by the "Great Recession", the global ruling class was forced into taking decisive action. Most Governments opted to bail out the banks, driven by their mantra of "too big to fail". Elsewhere, financial authorities and Central Banks opted to do the unthinkable by letting the market collapse.
In the wake of the global recession, a plethora of financial reforms were carried out. Some economists revisited the concept of doing away with fractional reserve banking altogether, with Iceland nearly leading the way. Most conventional politicians, meanwhile, opted to enact some of the most complex regulatory legislation in financial history, adding over eleven thousand pages to the bureaucratic burdern in the process.In the meantime, the regular "bloke on the street" had finally had enough and clamoured for change.
Today, nearly fifteen years later, "recession" has once again become the name of the game. With the European economy entering a state of contraction and German commercial banks facing imminent collapse, the global economic system is on the edge of being subjected to the worst economic crisis in recorded history. And while the Bundestag has already **recommitted itself to a bailout, others have yet to respond to the impending financial meltdown.
Although Chile and the rest of Latin America are somewhat isolated and thus shielded from the "European dumpster fire", the Government is keenly aware that the situation could quickly take a turn for the worse. As such, the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Chile have decided to embark on what they call "The Great Redemption". And although financial reform is contrary to the Allende Administration's strictly interim nature of governance, the President believes that the State has an inherently entrenched obligation to protect its citizens from suffering at the hands of the financial system. "The old continent has finally met its end", an increasingly aged and fragile Allende told the New York Times. "And in this new world order, Chile leads the way."

Hard-coded Monetarism

Following the global financial and subsequent European sovereign debt crisis, the European Central Bank embarked on a "Quantitative Easing" program of monumental proportions. While "Super Mario's" money printing machine allowed for Keynesian contra-cyclical spending, the long-term consequences of the ECB's continued buyback program have seemingly far outstripped the benefits. Negative interest rates have become standard practice across the Eurozone, and Christine Lagarde's continuation of her predecessor's policies has effectively led to the loss of the continent's ability to undertake monetary policy. Meanwhile, "inflation's ugly twin" is threatening to put a halt to consumer spending, potentially throwing more oil on the continental-sized dumpster fire.

Towards a Cashless Society

Following the introduction of Bitcon in the wake of the global financial crisis, digital cryptocurrencies have promised to dramatically reshape our moodern conception of money. After having watched privately-sanctioned digital coinage wax and wane for several years, Central Bankers across the globe have increasingly started calling for a public alternative. The dangers of private digital fiat money became abundantly clear when social media behemoth Facebook announced it would issue its own global cryptocurrency), with the Bank for International Settlements publicly denouncing the notion of digital currency being monopolised by private actors. The French and German Governments quickly followed suit, striking a major blow to the Libra.

Privatisation with a Human Face

Founded in 1953 by President Carloz Ibañez del Campo, the Bank of Chilean State is the country's third largest bank. BancoEstado has been ranked Latin America's safest bank since 2012, and the 48th safest bank in the world and 6th in the Southern Hemisphere since 2015. BancoEstado - whicich is rated AA3 by Moody's - is furthermore the only bank to service all of the country's communes, while being the sole financial service provider in theseventy-seven of the most remote Chilean localities.

Premium Insurance

Other Measures

The Chilean Government hopes - above all - that its willingness to undertake radical reforms will serve to inspire Euuropean Governments and Central Banks into being ambitious in their response to the continet's economic issues. At the same time, the Chilean financial sector is expected to become one of the world's most innovative, competitive and dynamic payments markets, continuing the country's reputation as Latin America's "Shining Star".Only time will tell whether or not these reforms will actually bear their fruits.

Footnotes

  • 1 - Based on a quote by Milton Friedman.
  • 2 - Customer support, mobile and internet banking, etc
  • 3 - I based this figure on the 2018 Annual Report, where on page 46 it states that the bank's total consolidated assets total more than $40 billion dollars. The figures I gave in terms of revenue are based on the subsequent economic growth, the willingness of Chileans to gain ownership of the bank for nationalist reasons, and on thee fact that both Peter_j_ and ForestChapel valued the bank at $50 billion in previous seasons. Please feel free to provide me with imput as I'm not very well vested in corporate valuations.
  • 5 - This is based on the so-called Bibby Plan, which is briefly described on the deposit insurance wikipedia page, as well as on basic econoics.
  • 6 - Regulations regarding the creation of a new bank will be adressed in a separate post.
[M] Much of the stuff in this post is based on recommendations by the Sustainable Finance Lab, a high profile Dutch financial think tank. As such, some of the stuff in this post might be a bit out of place considering the vastly different nature of the Dutch financial sector. Most of it should still be universally applicable, though.

Multiple People Accused Of Crypto Scams In The Dominican Republic The Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Dominican Republic is prosecuting seven people who were allegedly involved in scams and money laundering with cryptocurrencies. Cointelegraph en Español wrote that the defendants scammed more than 111 people and stole over $500,000. It is unclear if the victims were all from the Dominican Republic or if some victims reside in other countries.
German Finance Minister Scholz Wants Digital Euro As of Oct. 3, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz was advocating the idea of launching a digital Euro coin. Scholz stated that such a digital payment system would be beneficial for Europe and added that they “should not leave the field to China, Russia, the US or any private providers.” However, Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, recently said that stablecoins and cryptocurrency in general are of little value, adding: “Thus far, stablecoins and crypto-assets have had limited implications in these areas and are not designed in ways that make them suitable substitutes for money.”
German Govt: Stablecoins Should Not Become An Alternative To The Euro The German government announced a desire to prevent stablecoins such as Facebook’s planned Libra coin “as an alternative to the legal tender established” on Oct. 2, adding that: “Banknotes issued by the European Central Bank and national central banks are the only banknotes that are legal tender in the Euro area. From the point of view of the Federal Government, it will be necessary to ensure that “stablecoins” do not establish themselves as an alternative to the legal currency, thereby calling the existing monetary system into question.”
Liechtenstein’s Parliament Unanimously Approves New Blockchain Act On Oct. 3, the Parliament of Liechtenstein approved the Act on Tokens and Entities Providing Services Based on Trusted Technologies (TVTG), also known as the Blockchain Act, which aims to improve investor protection, combat money laundering and establish clarity. The new law will enter into force on Jan. 1, 2020. The parliament’s announcement claims that this act will make Liechtenstein the first country to have comprehensive regulation of the token economy.

This past week, BTC started a short term recovery from the $7,659 low against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded above the $7,800 and $8,000 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the $8,200 resistance area. Finally, the price tested the $8,500 resistance area and topped near the $8,539 level. Recently, it started a fresh decline and traded below the $8,400 level.
The price is now following a bearish path below the $8,200 level and is trading well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $7,659 low to $8,539 high. At the moment, the price is holding the $8,000 support level, with a bearish angle. An immediate support is near $8,000. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $7,659 low to $8,539 high.
More importantly, there is a key declining channel forming with resistance near $8,200 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin remains at a risk of more downsides below the $8,000 support area. If it breaks $8,000, it could decline towards the $7,850 support area. Any further downsides might trigger a move towards the $7,500 support area in the near term.

Yesterday to this day, the BTC has been shaking slightly and is still hovering around $10,000. In the past 24 hours, the net inflows of BTC funds approached 30 million US dollars. Compared with the previous cycle, the market inflows increased rapidly. Yesterday, BTC failed to break the $10,000 threshold, but the daily average turned downward. In the short term, the market is still short-term dominant. In the medium-term trend, we still tend to be bullish, but before BTC is completely out of the triangle, we should be alert to the risk of repeated dishwashing by the main force. The upper resistance is $10,400, while the lower support is around $9,600. Operational aspects, continue to attract funds on the low side, fall below the $9400 recommended stop loss exit.

Retailers Around The World That Accept Crypto, From Pizza to Travel

Retailers Around The World That Accept Crypto, From Pizza to Travel


News by Cointelegraph: Jinia Shawdagor
Earlier on, when Bitcoin (BTC) arrived on the scene, most cryptocurrency enthusiasts held on to their coins, as there were only so many places they could be spent. Nowadays, the list of marketplaces and retailers accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is significantly larger, providing crypto enthusiasts with more options for making real-world purchases.
After all, with recognizable organizations like Microsoft and Wikipedia now accepting Bitcoin as payment, conversations about Bitcoin and the power of cryptocurrencies are becoming more prominent.
Currently, several fast-food restaurants and coffee shops have started accepting Bitcoin as payment. This will likely provide traction for mass adoption as cryptocurrency payments become increasingly commonplace in day-to-day purchases.
Granted, there are some jurisdictions that do not consider Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency as legal tender. Despite this set back, even big tech companies like Facebook are coming up with payment systems that mimic cryptocurrencies.
Here are some of the leading retailers, merchants and companies that will let you book flights and hotels, buy coffee or pizza, or even go to space with crypto.

Pay for a burger in Germany with crypto

The German branch of fast-food restaurant chain Burger King now claims to accept Bitcoin as payment for its online orders and deliveries, but this is not the first time Burger King has warmed up to Bitcoin as a form of payment.
The company, headquartered in Florida in the United States, had its Russian branch announce in 2017 that it would start accepting Bitcoin payments, but it ultimately did not take off. The global fast-food retailer reports an annual revenue of about $20 billion and serves about 11 million customers around the world. If all its outlets move to accept Bitcoin as payment, cryptocurrency adoption would inevitably spread.

Spend crypto at Starbucks and other places

For crypto payments to gain traction, merchants need to implement systems that enable swift and easy cryptocurrency spending. Starbucks is one of the companies taking advantage of this concept through Flexa, a U.S.-based payment startup that is helping the cafe giant, as well as dozens of other companies, accept cryptocurrency payments.
The company developed an app called Spedn that enables crypto holders to make purchases with merchants like Starbucks. The company’s CEO believes that by making cryptocurrencies spendable in the mainstream, commerce will realize the full benefit of blockchain technology all over the world.
Crypto enthusiasts in Silicon Valley’s Palo Alto might already be familiar with Coupa Cafe for other reasons apart from its coffee and food. Through its partnership with a Facebook software developer, Coupa Cafe has been accepting Bitcoin as payment since 2013.
Reports show that the cafe received a steady stream of Bitcoin revenue as soon as they started implementing crypto payments — a clear sign of how eager its customers were to pay in Bitcoin. Coupa Cafe is among the few physical businesses in Palo Alto that accept Bitcoin at the moment. The cafe owners believe that their collaboration with the Facebook software engineer will create more traction in terms of Bitcoin adoption.

Buy food with crypto

With over 50,000 takeaway restaurants listed on its United Kingdom-based site, OrderTakeaways is one of the surest ways to get a pizza paid for with crypto delivered to your doorstep. The company has been accepting Bitcoin payments for online takeout orders since 2018. And other similar services include the Korean platform Shuttledelivery as well as German-based service Lieferando and its subsidiaries in several other countries.
Apart from online orders, crypto can also be spent at a regular Subway restaurants. As early as 2013, several Subway branches started accepting Bitcoin as payment. Now, for a fraction of a Bitcoin, a Subway sandwich can be purchased at select restaurants.

Pay with Bitcoin to tour space

Besides buying food and inexpensive, day-to-day items with crypto, a trip to space can now be bought with Bitcoin. That’s right. Richard Branson’s space tourism company, Virgin Galactic, started accepting Bitcoin as payment as far back as 2013. Although Branson’s predicted date for the first commercial flight has been pushed back several times, the company achieved its first suborbital space flight last year. Perhaps soon, people will be able to tour the moon on crypto’s dime.

Buy jewelry with Bitcoin

A brick-and-mortar American jewelry company called Reeds Jewelers accepts Bitcoin for both its physical and online stores. What’s more, if a purchase is worth more than $25,000, the company provides free armored delivery for safety. Other jewelry companies accepting Bitcoin include Blue Nile Jewelry, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry and Coaex Jewelry, to name a few.
A big advantage of purchasing large ticket items — like a diamond — with crypto is that it makes moving around large amounts of money cheap and effortless. Reports show that more Silicon Valley investors are buying jewelry with Bitcoin. Last year, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry reported a 20% growth in crypto transactions, leading to a boost in the company’s sales. The company has been accepting Bitcoin since 2014.

Send and redeem gift cards with Bitcoin

Gyft, a digital platform that allows users to buy, send and redeem gift cards, was one of the first merchants enabling cryptocurrency adoption to gain traction in the real world. The mobile gift card app allows Bitcoin to be used to purchase gift cards from several retailers, some of which include Burger King, Subway, Amazon and Starbucks. The company has also partnered with popular crypto exchange Coinbase to enable users to buy gift cards from their Coinbase wallets.

Travel and pay in Bitcoin

If a traveler only has Bitcoin at their disposal, the following merchants will gladly offer services in exchange for it. TravelbyBit, a flight and hotel booking service, accepts cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Binance Coin and Litecoin (LTC) as payment.
With a network of over 300 crypto-friendly merchants, the platform is one of the biggest supporters of crypto adoption. TravelbyBit can also alert you to upcoming blockchain events in order to interact with other crypto enthusiasts from around the globe. Other platforms to book flights with crypto include Destinia, CheapBizClass, CheapAir, AirBaltic, Bitcoin.Travel and ABitSky, among others.

Use crypto to book a five-star hotel in Zurich

If ever one finds themselves traveling to Zurich Switzerland, either BTC or Ether (ETH) can be used to pay for a stay in a five-star hotel in Zurich. In May 2019, five-star hotel and spa Dodler Grand announced that it will start accepting Bitcoin and Ether as payment.
The hotel has partnered with a fintech firm Inacta as well as Bity (a Swiss-based crypto exchange) to facilitate the payment and conversion of crypto to fiat money. The hotel boasts an amazing view of the Swiss landscape among other enticing amenities that come with a five-star hotel.

Pay for electronics and more with crypto

For all the gadget lovers, there are a bunch of platforms that allow electronic purchases with cryptocurrency. Newegg, for instance, is an electronic retail giant that uses BitPay to process payments made with digital currencies. Even though one cannot get refunds for Bitcoin purchases, Newegg has a good reputation for quality items.
Plus, the company boasts its being among the first merchants to support cryptocurrency adoption. Other platforms for gadget junkies include Eyeboot (a platform that sells crypto mining rigs in exchange for crypto), Microsoft, FastTech and Alza (a U.K.-based online store that sells phones and beauty products).

An ever-expanding list

It seems clear that more retailers are warming up to the idea of accepting cryptocurrencies. There is still a long way to go before full adoption can be achieved, but many companies have nevertheless benefited from being early adopters. Despite the volatile price movements of cryptocurrencies, all evidence points to a future cashless society that uses digital currencies, and crypto is leading the way.
