First time I found out about Bitcoin in 2011. I closed my bank account 3 years ago and live almost on Bitcoin since then using combination of several bitcoin services. Also past 3 years I worked for several bitcoin companies and get paid almost everything in Bitcoin. Now as a hobby I have created simple wooden handmade smartphone docking station and docking station for Trezor hardware wallet – http://imgur.com/gallery/L4A2YNV . I love my Trezor and this docking station makes using it even more comfortable for me.
Because there was a demand and people were asking if I´m selling them, I have created first batch and almost sold them all using only reddit messaging system and simple email invoice via www.bitcoinpay.com . – I´m looking forward to try some simple bitcoin based smart contract, which will simplify the purchasing process without the need of 3rd party payment gateway to process the payment to increase the trust in the transaction.
Now I´m accepting bitcoin payments from people around the world directly to my hardware wallet via. bitcoinpay and everything took around 10 minutes to setup from comfort of my home.
If I need to pay for something something I´m using my Trezor or Bitcoin debit card which allows me to buy almost everything with "Bitcoin". I know it is not direct way how to spend bitcoin but until there will be wider merchant/business acceptance this is the only way.
This is how I´m using Bitcoin apart of HODLing some:-) I love you Bitcoin and wish you awesome Valentine's Day:-)
