比特币购车时代已经到来

1月18日,史上最大一笔用比特币交易的汽车买卖诞生。

交易由赫尔辛基一家汽车公司达成,一辆 Tesla Model S P85+以相当于14万欧元的比特币售出。

"我们成功地迈出了第一步,未来也会开始推广这种比特币交易业务。我们已经收到了其他几个订单。幸运的是,我们优秀的员工队伍对于创新事物毫不怀疑。"该汽车公司的首席执行官Jukka Sinisalo说道。

实际上,该汽车公司之所以决定接受比特币作为支付方式之一,离不开BitcoinKaupat 公司的努力。记者就相关细节联系了BitcoinKaupat 的首席执行官Aleksi Vitakoski,他说:

"芬兰在一年前就可以用比特币为很多服务付款了。"

比特币支付增长势头一直在持续。我们注意到,芬兰媒体经常会提及比特币ATM。这显然会增加比特币使用者的数量,很多人想了解比特币是什么并尝试使用。因此,芬兰的比特币交易发展很快,尤其在芬兰首都赫尔辛基,你即使只有比特币也可以生活下去。"BitcoinKaupat正在努力减少交易公司在接纳比特币支付方面的障碍。我们向顾客提供简易安装的软件包,以使他们不需要为安装软件等等费心。我们还为公司的数字货币业务提供咨询服务,尤其是比特币。我们希望能把比特币带入人们的日常生活,也由此推动数字货币的革命。"Vitakoski.介绍道。

这并不是头一次以比特币售卖特斯拉或其他汽车:2013年,佛罗里达一位匿名人士购买了一辆10万美元的Tesla Model S(当时相当于91比特币)

实际上,如今在很多地方(包括线上和线下)都可以用比特币买车,不仅仅是买豪华车。

下面是一些比较引人注目的例子。

Beepi

Beepi是一个点对点开放式市场,由于它与BitPay由合作关系,你可以用比特币购买或出售二手车

BitPay的销售经理James Walpole介绍说:

"大额的线上交易往往会成为信用卡诈骗的目标,所以在线汽车销售商如Beepi和Bitpremier会寻求比特币进行交易。我们认为,在帮助交易商和客户节省资源和提高安全性方面,还存在广泛的市场潜力。"BitPay是在向企业推广比特币支付方面最重要的服务商,也是目前世界上最大的比特币支付处理商,为六个大洲超过60000个交易商提供服务。

BitPremiere

BitPremier公司的目标是为比特币使用者提供包括汽车在内的奢侈品。用比特币表示的价格由TradeBlock设定,公司从每一笔通过比特币交易的销售额中抽取5%的费用。

该公司由总部在纽约的数字货币集团提供支持,集团成员包括BitPay, BitGo, Circle,Coinbase, Coinsetter, Gyft, Digital Currency Council 以及TradeBlock.

The biggest Bitcoin car sale in European history was made on January 18th.

This happened thanks to the Auto Outlet Helsinki Oy who sold a Tesla Model S P85+ for an amount in bitcoinCT r: 7 equivalent to €140.000.

"We managed to do this first transaction and saw how it works, so we will now definitely start promoting it. Several other requests have been already towards us. And we have a great staff who are not suspicious on new innovations", said Auto Outlet CEO Jukka Sinisalo.

In fact, thanks to the BitcoinKaupat company this auto store decided to accept bitcoin among its methods of payment. A correspondent of CoinTelegraph contacted the CEO of BitcoinKaupat to get details.

Aleksi Vitakoski, CEO at BitcoinKaupat said:

"In Finland it has been possible to pay for large range of services with Bitcoin over a year now.

Bitcoin payments have been continuously growing and we have noticed that the Finnish media writes about our new merchants or bitcoin ATMs constantly. This of course increases the number of bitcoin users and many want to know and try what bitcoin is. This all can be done comprehensively in Finland and especially in Helsinki where you can survive by only using bitcoin."

BitcoinKaupat is a payment service that allows merchants to accept bitcoin payments throughBitPay.

"BitcoinKaupat is making easy to accept Bitcoin payments for companies. We offer "easy-to-install" package to our customers that they don't need to worry about installing software etc. We are also offering consulting services to companies of digital currencies, especially Bitcoin. We want to bring Bitcoin for everyday use to people and thus be involved in the revolution of digital currencies", commented Vitakoski.

This is not the first time someone has sold a Tesla or other car for bitcoin: in 2013 an anonymous man in Florida bought a $100,000 Tesla Model S (91 bitcoins at that time).

Nowadays, in fact, there are lots of places (online and offline) where you can buy a car for bitcoin. And not just luxury cars.

The most important and remarkable examples

Beepi

Beepi is a peer-to-peer marketplace where you can sell or buy your used car with bitcoin thanks to a partnership with BitPayCT r: 14.

James Walpole, BitPay Marketing Associate commented:

"High-value online transactions are often a target for a credit card fraud, so it makes sense for online vehicle sellers like Beepi and Bitpremier to turn to bitcoin. We see a lot of potential in markets like these for merchants and customers to save money and transact more securely."

BitPay is one the most important service that makes it easy for businesses to accept bitcoin payments, and they are currently the largest bitcoin payment processor in the world, serving more than 60,000 merchants on six continents.

BitPremiere
