This Man Has Been Living On Bitcoin For 3 Years

The 26-year-old head of special projects elected to get paid in the cryptocurrency when a single coin was about $20-$30. (As of press time, it’s about $450.) At the time, he says, “Most of the world had never even heard of it, let alone understood it, so I had a huge opportunity to hoard Bitcoin and speculate on the value.”

#Bitcoin was so little known, he says, it was hard for him to explain to his friends and relatives “what I even did.”

Using Bitcoin On Steam & Humble Bundle
I had previously added some credit to my steam account via Bitcoin to check it out. This weekend I saw some bargains and paid directly with Bitcoin. Payment experience via in-steam integrated Bitpay usage flow is fantastic.  It beats the experience of Debit and a not-assigned paypal payment.

Then there comes the pricing of on-sale for me. As the combination of paying with Bitcoin + the reference price being for the Mexico Market where $1 USD is actually more like $10 MXN instead of $17 MXN x $1 USD is just a winning combination. I only paid $5 USD for the 3 Dead Island games with DLC included. I also got 3 other games for $2 USD via Humble Bundle. So, I got  a bunch of games that would normally run you from $35 to $70 USD for $7 USD. 

I think that is as good as it can get.  I tell you all this to confirm that paying with Bitcoin in Steam and Humble Bundle don't only works. It is actually objectively as good of a experience as paying with Paypal. And better than any other payment method.  In terms of the principle, as Bitcoiners we know why it is better than everything else.  But the regular user or casual user will never care about that. Which is why reviewing the experience will have to come first. That is the reality of things.

TL;DR: If you wanted to know if the experience of paying with Bitcoin on Steam or Humble Bundle was any good. Now you know it is as good as it can be.  Just aim for the best deals to make it excellent for you.
