In August we took a look at 6 things you could buy with Bitcoin at the time. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. There are constantly new retailers adding BTC as a payment option, and new products from old standbys. With Pumpkin Spice Everything season upon us, why not get into the spirit of things and combine your love of Fall with your love of Bitcoin? After all, is it really a coincidence that like pumpkins and piles of leaves, Bitcoin is orange? We don’t think so.
If cozy sweaters, mulled drinks, and Halloween are occupying your thoughts these days, here’s how to get seasonal and get into the Bitcoin fall spirit.
4 things to buy for your Bitcoin fall
Start decorating. When we think of how to shop with Bitcoin, the first thing that comes to mind is always Overstock.com. The giant e-retailer was one of the first to accept Bitcoin as payment, and though the company’s original CEO recently stepped down, his replacement is equally enthusiastic about cryptocurrency. Luckily for us, Overstock also has a huge seasonal decorating section on its website, which means you can stock up on all the decorative gourds your heart desires and check out with Bitcoin. Fall, we dig you.
Drink something warm. It’s a little unclear to, well, everyone, if Starbucks is accepting Bitcoin or not. In May the news broke that the coffee giant was part of a group of retailers that would now start accepting Bitcoin, with the Winklevoss twins’ Gemini handling the payment processing. But those retailers—which included Whole Foods and Nordstrom—were all keeping mum, and no one seems to be waving the Bitcoin flag at the moment. Nevertheless, if Pumpkin Spice Latte is what your heart desires this fall, Pumpkin Spice Latte is what your heart shall have. Yes, it requires a workaround, but head over to Gyft.com and get yourself a Starbucks card using your BTC.
Wrap yourself in something cozy. Cyberoptix Tie Lab’s collection of hand-printed ties and scarves are beautiful. There are hundreds of designs to choose from, and each one is prettier than the next, but we of course recommend going straight for the BTC. Their blockchain-inspired pashmina will keep you warm, cozy, and well taken care of all through the autumn months. And Cyberoptix not only accepts Bitcoin, you can also pay with Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. We think our pashmina collection is about to expand.
Curl up by the fire. Ok, we’re straying a bit here from our original mission of fall shopping with Bitcoin, but nothing says fall like a crisp evening in on the couch with a good book or movie. If you haven’t already checked out our Bitcoin book and movie recommendations, we think now is the perfect time to do so. Don’t forget to light the fireplace if you’ve got one—it’s orange, just like Bitcoin.
