    Interested to know whether any of you have bought or sold using cryptocurrency as the payment method? Love it or hate it, we are at the fore-front of 'the web', so it surprises me how few have adopted it.

    I know we have the "bitcoin" thread; this is more targeted at those that have done deals. Did you request to pay/sell with crypto, was it suggested to/by you, were you able to offer this method via your placehold or auction?

    I've offered it as an option, with a discount, as it is certainly a lot easier than having to mess around with Paypal, who have been terrible for me lately.

    (before anyone asks, all my tax obligations are paid in full, this isn't a means of avoidance).

    That's because it's a giant ponzi scheme. There's nothing behind it.

    Would be a great option for a domain auction site if the logistics could be sorted

    I'm not sure how this is in any way relevant to the original question. If you want to post about why you think it's a ponzi scheme maybe start your own thread rather than hijacking the OP's.

    To answer the original question, I have been asked to accept crypto in the past but so far have refused due to the volatility at the time.

    The OP did ask why so few people have adopted it.. I gave an opinion.
