Where to Spend your Digital Currency (UK)
These days, the world is becoming more and more digital, to the point where even our currency is becoming digital! While this is a prevalent thing in some circles, and more so in some countries than others, there's still a general lack of knowledge about digital currency and where it can be used.

Today we’re going to be talking a little about Bitcoin in particular, and where Bitcoin can be spent in the UK specifically (although some methods are valid for other countries), hopefully to help you out a little bit!
Where to use your digital currency
Bitcoin is arguably one of the more prevalent of digital currencies, and the one that’s most supported by various online marketplaces. There’s a full trading community of people making use of Bitcoin; buying, selling and literal trading are all common occurrences.
What about if you don’t really want to buy, sell, or trade your Bitcoin, though? If you’re not really into the idea of the withdrawal and deposit fees, but you still want to use your digital currency?
Well fortunately there are a few places in the UK that accept Bitcoin as payment, and one of them may be a very pleasant surprise!
The Pi Hut
You’ve probably heard us mention the Raspberry Pi a few times, and The Pi Hut is by far the best supplier of all things Pi in the UK. No matter what you’re looking for for your Pi, The Pi Hut should be your go to choice – especially if you’ve got Bitcoin to spend as they happily accept it as a form of payment for their products.
CEX is a shop for all things entertainment; games, technology and other media all included. Some of their physicals stores now accept Bitcoin as a form of payment, as does their website. Handy for if you’re hankering after a new game with some spare Bitcoin to spend!
For lovers of all things high street In the UK, you need to check out Gift Off. They let you swap Bitcoin for gift cards (at face value!) to spend in a huge variety of stores in the UK, including some restaurants and even hotels. These stores include things like Next, Debenhams, New Look and MAC, so there’s plenty to choose from.
They’re also great for giving as gifts, if you’re feeling generous…
