New opportunities to pay with Bitcoin

With the focus on Bitcoin as a digital preserver of value, its function as a means of payment seems to have taken a back seat. Here too, however, solutions are being developed to increase the speed of transactions, and the network of companies which accept Bitcoin in payment is constantly expanding. Here are two current examples.


Newegg Inc., the leading technology-oriented online retailer in North America with a global reach extending to over 80 countries, now intends to broaden the option of paying in Bitcoin to 73 countries. Newegg customers in the USA and subsequently also Canada have been able to pay for their purchases in Bitcoin since 2014.

According to local media reports in Norway, starting in the autumn, the airline Norwegian Air intends allow its passengers to pay in Bitcoin. Co-founder of the Norwegian airline Bjørn Kjos (73) is a Bitcoin investor. Northern Bitcoin is also active in Norway, where it operates its mining hardware based on climate-neutral, low-cost hydroelectricity.
