3 Uses for Cryptocurrency Online


August 2021

With each passing day, it seems there has been a new development in the cryptocurrency world. From online gambling websites such as No Limit Casino (where you can play roulette, slots, blackjack and many more games of chance and strategy) to ecommerce stores, the number of places which accept cryptocurrency as a valid form of payment continue to grow.

So if you’ve dipped your toes into the world of crypto and packed your e-wallet full of Bitcoin, Ethereum or another cryptocurrency of your choice, you’ll now be keen to find places you can spend them. Here are three everyday uses of cryptocurrency online which will ensure you get as much value from your crypto coins as you would from any traditional form of payment.

Gambling

The number of online casinos which now accept cryptocurrency as a means of payment is increasing at a rapid pace. There are a variety of advantages to this type of payment method, which explains why they are growing in popularity among both players and operators. For starters, the blockchain technology behind all cryptocurrencies is smarter and more secure than many conventional banks or building societies, while the digital nature of the asset means it can be transferred more quickly and affordably. With fewer overheads, gambling sites can then pass on these savings to their customers in the form of bonuses, promotions and other perks.

Shopping

Retail therapy is perhaps the biggest use to which we put conventional currencies like dollars and pounds sterling, so it should be no surprise that online shopping is also a very popular method of spending cryptocurrencies. That growth has been supported by several households names in the world of technology, such as Microsoft and Tesla, while others like Apple are considering a switch soon. Meanwhile, shoppers can use third party tools to access sites like Amazon and the Gap, and cryptocurrency is expected to have a bright future in the ecommerce sector, too. Already, many of the largest hosting platforms (such as Shopify) allow the use of cryptocurrencies to make and receive payments.

Going on holiday

In 2013, budget travel site CheapAir.com announced it would begin accepting cryptocurrency to pay for flights, rental cars and cruise holidays, making it one of the first online travel agents to embrace crypto. Since then, many other big names in the industry have followed suit, with Expedia announcing that it would make cryptocurrency-funded travel available to up to 700,000 of its users through a collaboration with Travala.com earlier this year. With one of the mainstream travel sites now fully on board, it seems only a matter of time before cryptocurrency becomes a standard option when it comes to booking flights, hotels and all the other accoutrements that make holidays memorable.

As the technology develops and more cryptocurrencies become available, more and more website operators are waking up to the lucrative potential of this exciting new innovation. Today, some of the most common uses of crypto are gambling, shopping and booking holidays online – but by tomorrow, there could be a whole new raft of uses for the technology.
