Now that Tesla is accepting Bitcoin, I’m starting to see more stories of other individuals willing to accept Bitcoin for their homes, boats, cars, and other larger ticket items.
The common response is the one I see in my headline, and the answer is simple. Bitcoin was intended to be used to conduct transactions without government backed money, and people are actually using Bitcoin for its intended purpose. We aren’t just talking about a pizza here either, the fact people are willing to trade something like a house for Bitcoin is huge for its adoption.
So yes, while you could simply take cash and buy the Bitcoin yourself, the whole point is to normalize transacting in Bitcoin. Satoshi would be proud!
