Spending Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies still feels like a foreign language to most of us. So many of us have “invested” in Bitcoin and watched as its risen, fallen and risen again but when we see a profit, what do we do with it? The answer is simple, spend it!
Famously, the first known commercial transaction of cryptocurrency was when Laszlo Hanyecz traded 10,000 bitcoins for two Papa John’s pizzas on May 22, 2010. Today, that value totals to over £411 million… Back then, not only was Bitcoin’s value much lower but the items available to purchase with Bitcoin were almost little to none. Thankfully however, paying for items with Bitcoin has certainly become a more familiar sight at both online checkouts and in real-life stores.
At W Hamond, we are incredibly proud to be one of the first online luxury watch and jewellery retailers to offer Bitcoin payments. This means that you can finally treat yourself to the luxury watch or jewellery of your dreams, whether its that shiny new diamond necklace, a robust Grand Seiko watch or a sophisticated set of pearl earrings.
