Enter BitcoinShop.US, the first online store for Bitcoin users to buy all kinds of products

by Shayne Rana

Bitcoin is now ready for business and the online currency that only recently made its ATM debut in Canada is ready to take the US by storm. Even the good folks Down Under are using Bitcoins to buy cars. In time for the holiday season, the first Bitcoin online megastore i.e. BitcoinShop.US, is good to go. Bitcoin currency users can now shop online for all kinds of goodies including mobile handsets, jewelry and even gourmet foods. Michal Handerhan and Tim Sidie are the creators of this enterprise. In a recent statement Handerhan said – “With the Bitcoin rate climbing, shoppers will get their Bitcoins’ worth this holiday season…”

So its good news for the online currency as this is just one more step towards it becoming a globally acceptable form of exchange. Handerhan also added that it would be in the best interest of the U.S. government to recognize Bitcoin as a formal currency but he wished to discourage any tight regulations that would hinder businesses like theirs or force them to move outside of the US. In the meantime BitcoinShop.us is not slowing down and is ensuring that their clientele can avail of the best offers Bitcoin can buy, they’ve even renamed Black Friday to “Bitcoin Friday” which is quite appropriate all things considered.
