What Can You Spend Bitcoin On? Can I Buy Vinyl Records Online With Bitcoin?

Vinyl Lovers Unite is one of the latest companies to embrace Bitcoin, the new revolution in global currency. It's been in the news a lot, and with growing demand, we decided it was time that vinyl lovers had an opportunity to buy their favorite music the safest and easiest way possible.  

What is Bitcoin? Here's a quick introduction:

Bitcoin:  The Internet's Currency

Unlike traditional forms of money, Bitcoin is controlled by no government, and it's built upon open-source distributed systems that ensure it cannot be interfered with by outside parties.  

While most central banks keep their ledgers private, Bitcoin uses a public ledger, called the blockchain. Every Bitcoin transaction is stored in the cloud, and verified by other Bitcoin programs, making fraudulent doctoring of the books effectively impossible. Likewise, dirty tricks like fraudulent chargebacks on credit cards, are also prevented by this system.

Bitcoins are kept in online wallets, which are also backed by strong encryption, and can only be accessed by their owner. (They're so secure that if someone loses the password, they're lost forever.) It's also possible to keep them in online banks, which make transactions easier.
