It started out with a few, then other car dealerships began following the trend and now it’s spreading like a forest fire. After doing some research, I was able to gather around 40 car dealerships that accept crypto payments. I added the full list of bitcoin friendly car dealerships in the bottom of this article.

There is also a website dedicated for buying and selling used cars with Bitcoin. The website is called BuySellCarWithBitcoin. Similar to Craigslist, the site allows the general public to put their car up for sale using Bitcoin as the preferred payment method. However, buying a car from a random individual is considered a bit risky. Buyers should take extra caution while doing so, including checking the car's title, carfax report and a full car inspection so you don't end up with any hidden surprises.
Buy from a Dealership Online With Bitcoin
Most people prefer to buy a car from an authorized dealer because it's much easier and they usually offer some type of mechanical warranty even if the vehicle is used. Autocoincars is a place where shoppers can browse around, lease or purchase a car with Bitcoin that's being sold by an licensed dealership. They have a huge selection of exotic cars, as well as affordable vehicles that only cost one or two Bitcoins. The website also has a sign up section for new dealerships looking to sell cars on the platform.
What Else Can You Buy With Bitcoin?
Aside from cars, you can buy just about anything Bitcoin. Over the years, Bitcoin has gained notable popularity in many parts of the world, causing more businesses to recognize it as a form of currency.
Although Walmart and Amazon doesn't accept crypto, there are other retailers out there with a wide selection of products that can be purchased using Bitcoin. For example, Bitplaza is a global shopping app where users can buy pretty much anything with Bitcoin. Just like any other big box store, Bitplaza lets you purchase things like electronics, tools, household items, cosmetics, groceries and even diapers.
You can also spend Bitcoin for vacation and travel using CheapAir. The website allows anyone to book hotels and purchase airline tickets with Bitcoin.
Bitcoin can also be spent on services ranging from web hosting solutions to satellite TV subscriptions and many other types of professional services.
Major television service provider, DISH Network accepts Bitcoin payments for monthly subscriptions, add-ons, and even PPV events and movies.
