By now, you’ve more than likely heard about Bitcoin. The virtual currency has been shoved into the limelight thanks to its recent rapidly climbing rate, and the use of the currency for online drug purchases though the online drug marketplace the Silk Road. The first Bitcoin online megastore ever has opened up today, BitcoinShop.US, allowing Bitcoin connoisseurs the option to buy a wide range of products, including smartphones to purchase products with the virtual currency.
“My personal belief is that it’s in the U.S. government’s best interest to recognize Bitcoin as a currency just like any other, however I would discourage any tight regulations that would hinder businesses like BitcoinShop.US, or worse — push them out of this country.” – BitcoinShop.US co-founder Michal Handerhan

“With the Bitcoin rate climbing, shoppers will get their Bitcoins’ worth this holiday season…” says BitcoinShop.US co-founder Michal Handerhan. Bitcoin has received an increased interest among the government and today’s senate hearing is a true testament to Bitcoin currency validity. “My personal belief is that it’s in the U.S. government’s best interest to recognize Bitcoin as a currency just like any other,” says Handerhan, “however I would discourage any tight regulations that would hinder businesses like BitcoinShop.US, or worse — push them out of this country.”
BitcoinShop.us continues to add a wide range of best selling products, some even requested by online shoppers themselves. Shoppers can look forward to great deals and sales during Black Friday, which has been appropriately renamed “Bitcoin Friday.”
