Cryptocurrencies are enjoying growing popularity around the world. Until recently, payments on a larger scale using cryptocurrencies were not possible, but currently, thanks to technological advances, every owner of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and many other cryptocurrencies can freely use them for everyday payments.
The primary problem that every ETH owner faces is finding a place where Ethereum is accepted. Currently, only a small proportion of service providers and sellers accept cryptocurrency payments. Additionally, the vast majority of them operate only online and offer goods and services that are often unavailable to Polish customers. However, there are ways that allow you to use Ethereum.
Simple payments with Ethereum
One way to make ETH payments freely is to use the TenX VISA card. It is enough for the owner of Ethereum to connect the cryptocurrency wallet to the payment card. TenX then, acting as an intermediary, exchanges the ETH in the wallet for the traditional currency. Then, he debits a part of the funds from the account that was used for payment and charges an additional commission of 2%.
Thanks to the cooperation of TenX and VISA, payments with this payment card are accepted wherever a regular VISA card can be used. In practice, this means that you no longer have to worry about who accepts Ethereum as the cryptocurrency can be used for almost all payments. Both for online transactions and payments at points of sale. What are the other solutions?
Many sites, especially foreign ones, allow customers to buy Ethereum gift cards. A good example is Amazon, which is popular in the world. While it doesn't allow cryptocurrency payments itself, you can buy a gift card for this store using cryptocurrencies. Other ways are direct payments.
The question of what can I buy with Ethereum directly is very limited. However, there are sellers and service providers that accept this currency. From electronics stores, through tourism-related companies to pet stores. Most often, however, these are foreign stores, which do not always allow shipping to Poland.
