The Holidays are upon us and it’s time to shop for your loved ones and friends. The nice thing about Bitcoin is that it has afforded its early investors the ability to dabble in luxury goods. Hovering now around $800, just weeks ahead of Christmas 2016, Bitcoin is posed to yet again be one of the year’s best performing assets…if not the best.
And there’s no better reason to buy a luxury good than to give it away. So this holiday season, we wanted to create a list of those items you can purchase and have at the holidays.
This original version of Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”, a ghost story about Christmas, is an elegant gift this holiday season for just $14,000, available on the popular luxury product for Bitcoin website Bitpremier.
A timeless fiction classic is not the only potential gift available at Bitpremier, which has been featured in publications like Wall Street Journal and Forbes. The world’s largest piece of natural green aquamarine, according to the vendor, is listed on the website, as well, for more than $120,000.
At Uhrzeit, those within Europe can purchase a luxury watch for Bitcoin for a loved one in time for the holidays.
The website, which is currently offering Holiday deals, offers watches for the entire family from popular brands including Casino, Hamilton, Swatch, Fossil and Nixon.
CryptoArt is serious about their mission: bringing valuable art to the art scene and marketplace. If you’ve ever visited their website, you’ve noted they run AdsWords campaigns, Google’s ad for merchants platform. Here we see the sites most expensive piece, currently listed at more than $1,030 in Bitcoin for a 24 x 30in piece. Called “Patriot”, this work of art is by artist Alexander Fedosov, and, in a unique twist, is preloaded with 1/1000th of a Bitcoin.
Now here’s a sophisticated gift to give among your monied loved ones. But, here’s the catch: if you live in the US, you likely can’t get your hands on it. BTCC, a major Chinese bitcoin mining operation, Mint sells physical bitcoins.
This C-series set of 20 Bitcoin chips represent durable bitcoin poker chips. The 20 chips are in one shrink-wrapped stack and customers receive a 100 chip aluminum carrying case for each of the rolls they order.
How about this 2016 set of five physical bitcoins. It’s beautiful, and comes with a gorgeous solid beech etui box. The five coins in the set are all mined in the same block.
OK, Kanye West’s press has not been in the best mental state. But mental illness ain’t nothing to mess with nor joke around about.
Yeezy’s – Kanye’s branded foot wear by Adidas – can be bought for bitcoins for someone this holiday season thanks to BitKickz.
The kicks have been the source of much controversy, just like the rapper himself. Who really needs sneakers that cost hundreds of dollars anyway? Plus, the rapper said he was going to bring some $30 version of the Yeezy’s to K-Mart. Never saw those.
I’ll just stick with my counterfeit pair. Anyway, to get those yeezy’s in time for Christmas check out the Bitcoin-accepting shoe website Bitkickz.
