But can I spend it?
Yes, you can! Bitcoin acceptance in day to day life is increasing all the time. Just ask Amelie. You can book travel, order food and even pay your rent in Bitcoin these days, although you do have to know where to look, and put up with three to four-hour transaction processing periods. Services like BitPay and Wirex, however, are transforming your Bitcoin wallet into physical debit card that can be used as easily and securely as Visa, meaning that you can spend your Bitcoin on the go just like any other currency.
