What can you buy with crypto?

Mar 12 · 3 min read

In recent years, there have been many improvements in cryptocurrency use cases, and accepting crypto payments became a great solution for many merchants due to its convenience, low transaction fees, and current trends.

It’s been over a decade since Laszlo Hanyecz created the first crypto transaction for physical goods by buying two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoin, and since then, cryptocurrencies have been used to buy a lot more than pizza.

Nowadays, the options seem endless since GoCrypto allows you to spend cryptocurrencies at GoCrypto locations on pretty much anything your heart desires. All from the latest technology, gadgets, clothes, groceries, taxi rides, cars, and even real estate. That’s right, you can empty your crypto bags to buy yourself a house!

Just recently, a car dealership was the first in Croatia to sell a car for crypto through our GoCrypto payment gateway, and the first apartment was sold through GoCrypto not long after.

“We are the first to sell a car for a cryptocurrency. We believe that, in the future, there will be more and more customer requests for payments in cryptocurrencies, and that other merchants in the industry will follow our example and start using this method of payment that benefits both merchants and customers, “said Tomislav Karic, CEO of Karic Automobili.
