Plenty of people are, which is why they ignore the full potential of this leading digital currency and don’t realize that it has already gone mainstream. As a result, they’re missing a world of opportunity to use it in their daily lives.
So let’s start with a simple definition.
By calling it cryptocurrency, all that’s meant is that this new currency is money that’s available in an electronic or digital format. But, while it can’t be held or folded or pocketed in your wallet or purse like green currency, it buys real things.
Things at places like Subway and Grooveshark and Starbucks and a few bars and pizza joints. Oh, and at some 38 million other places all over the globe.
In fact, any service or establishment that accepts the Visa payment card will accept bitcoin as payment. We’re talking about brick and mortar stores of all kinds, as well as at the world’s most popular e-commerce websites.
About Shift Card
All you need is a Shift Card. That’s a Visa card like any other.
Well, not quite like any other. The Shift Card is America’s first debit card specifically for bitcoin use. It works exactly like every other credit or debit card in your wallet, allowing you to pay for products and services domestically or internationally. Online or off.
Think about that. Whenever you enter a retail store or food & beverage establishment and see a Visa decal on the window — that’s one more place where you can spend this cryptocurrency just like any other legal form of money. Whenever you see a Visa logo on a website or learn by asking that Visa is accepted where you’re thinking of conducting business.
The Shift Card is easy to apply for. Since it’s debit-based, your credit history is not a factor. Your transactions are completely secure, and you’ll receive immediate notification of all spending. You can also trace your activity online, just as you do with all of your debit and credit card and bank transactions.
Just go to www.shiftpayments.com to find out more about the Visa Shift card and see how to take advantage.
If there’s a catch, it’s only that you can’t start transacting business at 38-plus million locations online and offline with your Shift Card from Visa until you’ve bought this exciting digital currency. The good news is that this is an incredibly easy thing to do.
Simply open an account at Coinbase and electronically connect it with your bank account, credit card or debit card. Whichever funding source you want to use to exchange U.S. dollars for digital currency. Right now Coinbase is giving away $10 in Bitcoin when you buy or sell $100 in Bitcoin.

You might start with as little as $20, and use it to access your debit card. Try one or more very minor purchases just to make sure that you understand the process and feel comfortable with it and see that it works.
Once you see how easy it is to become part of the digital currency economy, you’ll decide to exchange more currency. But that’s up to you.
