Are there stores that accept bitcoins? In particular, are there alternatives to the ebay-like website Bitmit? Bitmit has shut down, and I am looking for an alternative.
Sure, plenty of places accept bitcoin.
Here are a few links:
- https://www.spendbitcoins.com/places/ - General list.
- https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade - General list.
- http://www.gyft.com/ (enables you to use giftcards at major retailers, from your phone and paid in BTC.)
- http://coinmap.org/ for local places accepting bitcoin.
- http://www.foodler.com for dinner.
- https://www.bitcoinstore.com/ for electronics.
- https://www.corkket.com/ for selling locally.
If you're looking for a Bitcoin auction site, like BitMit was, try http://www.halfpricedigital.com
cryptothrift.com is a good site to look at as an alternative to bitmit. They also support Litecoin and other alts as an option
I cannot believe this has not been suggested before, but besides cryptothrift which has already been mentioned, CoinGig is a great eBay-like Bitcoin marketplace like BitMit:
I know, I can't believe the Bitmit is gone! I used to sell all kinds of stuff on there!
I read that a new BTC auction site just launched this week. It is called DistractedPuppy.com.
I looked around a little, it looks like a beta, but promising! Maybe there is hope. ;D
