Not only can you buy stuff with Bitcoin when you travel – you can buy (invest in) other alt coins too.

Is Bitcoin Real Money?

It was hard for us to get our head around the fact that people are valuing this new fangled “digital money” just like real money.

After all – if one has a certain cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin they can exchange it for cash (at an ATM) in some locations and for goods and services at others.

We wrote a short article about cryptocurrency a while back.  You can see it Here.

Being interested in gambling by nature we are interested in diving in to the cryptocurrency markets and see if our skills can make us consistent money – time will tell.

More to come.
